I'm trying to research my family genealogy. The Sasportas ancestors were listed as 'mulattos' in Charleston, South Carolina since the early 1800's. However, I was told that the Sasportas ancestors were originally Sephardic Jews from Bordeaux, France who migrated to Haiti and other Caribbean Islands. I've heard of an Aaron Sasportas who lived in Haiti during the late 1700's. He had several sons (including an Aaron and a Benjamin). I think someone from his family eventually moved to Charleston - (there also was an Abraham Sasportas living in Charleston at that time). I've also heard there was a Sasportas ancestor from Haiti who was hanged as a spy in Jamaica.
Does anyone have any information on the Sasportas family history in Haiti? - or can someone point me in the right directon for my search?
