States: Louisiana: Pointe Coupee
Dr. Henry B. Hiern who appears to have earlier lived in St. Francisville across the river moved to Pointe Coupee Parish in the 1840s after marrying Maria Jewell, daughter of Benjamin Jewell and Sarah Isaacs Jewell. Dr. H.B. Hiern seems to have managed the plantation interests for Sarah Isaacs Jewell after her husband, Benjamin Jewell died in 1828 and his involvement with the Jewell family was recorded in numerous documents. According to the 1847 succession of Alexander Jewell, younger brother of Maria Jewell, Maria had died without issue by 1847. Maria's sisters were Amelia (m. H.L. Camp), Isabella (m.1st Louis Daigre, 2nd Morgan Morgan), Jane (m. Laban Bradford), and Clarissa (m. Zachariah Shirley). If anyone has further information on any of these people, please contact me.
