I am a direct desendant of Bernard from Le Cap (also called Cap Francasis or Cap Haitien) and the immediate area (Port Margot, Isle de Tortuge) on the northern coast of Haiti (Saint-Domingue).

I have very little, but for what it's worth, here it is:

FRANCOIS BERNARD:
Born: La Rochelle, France
Father:
Mother:
Married: Melle. Ecuyer
Children: (issue un garcon, 3 filles)
Marie Thèrése Bernard (married Rigaud), your father, native of Nantes named itself Mr. Rigaud, spouse one of the girls, my [M. Laboussay] aunt.
The son’s spouse [daughter-in-law] Melle D'annicous, inhabitant of the Luisbe.
My [M. Laboussay] father, Mr. Coursol etait mariee [is married] with one of the girls, it native etait of Nantes
The threes etait mariee with Mr. Beanyer, native of St. Merlo in France.
Died:

MARIE THÈRÉSE RIGAUD, neé BERNARD:
Born: Nantes, France
Father: Francois Bernard (native of La Rochelle)
Mother: Melle.Ecuyer, (Melle Lecuyer, native of La Rochelle)
Married: Francois Rigaud (Port Margot, Saint Domingue), Died: at or before 1797
Children: Marie Claire Rigaud
Died: May 4, 1806. Spanish Document. Death Certificate of Widow Rigaud. Signed by Friar Juan Alvarez. 1 page. [FORC-folder 32]
Note: Marie Therèsé Bernard: native to: L’isle de Tortue 1797, Port Margot 1797, Cap Francaise 1798

Marie (Colome) Bernard; Cap Francasis, Saint-Domingue: SL#1, 230 [St. Louis Cemetery Interment Records]

The family, now named Rigaud, Laboussay, Daubert, etc. resettled in nearby Baracoa, Cuba as a result of the Haitian Revolution. When the Spanish kicked the French out of Cuba (in retribution to Napoleon's invasion of Spain), they came to New Orleans, Louisiana in 1809. We have been here ever since.
