I am searching for information on my family. My great grandfather's name is Earnest Joseph Toussaint who lived in Opelousas, Louisiana, USA and was born August 27, 1900. His parents' names are Octave Toussaint and Marguerite Richard. Octave's parents names' are Celestine Toussaint and Marie Jeanne. We have always been told to remember the name Pierre Toussaint, but we can't seem to make the connection. We've also been told that we are descendants of Toussaint L'Ouverture but it seems to be nearly impossible to make this connection. We are trying to make the connection to Haiti so that we can go on furhter to Africa.
