I'm trying to find any information regarding Paul Decayette. I found an article in a Dominican Rep. website that talks about him. He was a General in the Emperial Court of Faustin Soulouque. He was one of the Generals that lead an army into battle in approx. in the year 1856 for the recapture of the Dominican Rep.
Because of a misunderstanding with Emperor Soulouque, he was banished from the court never to return. He found refuge in a mountain or hill that has his name sake "Morne Decayette".
To my understanding, Jimani is located near Leogane. Help, Help if anyone heard the story or how can I locate articles, birth certificates, since he was an important figure in Haitian History.
