|Hearts are Trumps (1872) by Sir John Everett Millais|
In February 2015, I wrote about my wife's 3rd-great-grandfather, Joseph Halter, and how he worked as a syrup maker in Raphael Tudury's Orleans Syrup Factory. Tudury's wife, Dorothea Paderas, was the sister of Louisa Elenore Paderas, first wife of Joseph Halter's uncle (also named Joseph Halter). After Raphael Tudury's death in 1874, Dorothea maintained the Tudury House on Elysian Fields Street. She hosted a regular euchre games and social events, as seen from the article below dated from January 1892.

The euchre events spread among other homes of the well-to-do in New Orleans. Several euchre clubs were formed in the late 1890s, include one at the home of the Tudury's, the Elysian Euchre Club.
