Wow, This is absolutely amazing. As I read what you've sent, I can't help but think about what this all means to me right now. You've opened up a part of my family's history that was not known before. And right now gives me great joy to now know more about the lives of my new found ancestors from St John the baptist parish and St Charles Parish, Louisiana. I want to thank you. There appears to be an entire branch of more cousins and family connection that will take some time understanding.
Your assumption base on available census and other documents appears to be correct. I too am hoping to discover more. I have always knew one day I would be able to find the mother and father of Rosette Catherine Laporte. Part of her mother's name was always looking right that at me- Catherine, and I did even know it. Could her first name Rosette be also a clue to some other ancestor possibly Catherine mother? Just thinking about how those ancestors use the name of previous generations to keep the family connected is also interesting. It will be interesting to go back and study the information you've sent. I'm almost certain there is more yet to be discovered.
I have one more family mystery that you might be able to assist me with concerning another ancestral line- D'arensbourg. This one Involved Pierre Fredrick d'arensbourg, fils who died 15 november 1799. Apparently, He too was said to have been in a cohabitation with a slave, woman of color, mulatto named- Felicite. Do you have any record or history of such an arrangement. where exactly did they live. I am also looking for the names of the parents, and or siblings of Felicite, the mulatto female who lived within pierre fredrick d'arensbourg household up until he died. Pierre's was the son of Pierre Fredrick d'arensbourg, pere and Elizabeth duclos Deselle. I am assuming since Felicite was mulatto then her mother was most like native indian or african and her father white european. Felicite was probably born in 1766 base on a record another cousin found and told me about. Any assistance with this one is great appreciated.
