I think the origin of the above is God although there are those that feel the other guy had a hand in it. Merry Christmas.

The first work done to create Piver's Island was done by one Jesse Piver. He bought the property (such as it was) from the State and proceded to improve it. He was married to Emily Pacquinete. I have never been able to determine who Emily's parents were. could you possibly help? Jesse and Emily were my great-great-grandparents.

So happy to see someone else searching this name. I have seen it spelled so many ways. My ggg grandmother was Louisa Mae Pacquinette from Wilkinson Co.,MS. There were 2 men in Wilkinson Co that married abt 1825, William and John (I believe this was his name). I can't find any info on the second but believe him to be my Louisa Mae's father. William stayed in MS. Was wondering if either of these names rang a bell. I have been searching forever it seems like, and hopefully am about to discover something. Thanks for any help
