Re: Prevost, Haiti? to Charleston

In Reply to: Prevost, Haiti? to Charleston by Beth Browne of 2225

There was a small but influential Prevost family in New Orleans by the 1810s, including Catherine Prevost, who married a prominent Spanish lawyer, Juan Rodriguez. The family probably was from St. Domingue -- many of the St. Domingan refugees fled to New Orleans, not immediately after the slave revolt, but in 1808, when the Spanish threw perhaps 10,000 refugees out of Cuba. This new wave of French-speaking immigrants, coming after New Orleans was already part of the U.S., comprise the bulk of New Orleans' former-French-speaking population -- white, black, and mulatto. They retained some ties with other refugees in Charleston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and France.
