After the horrendous earthquake in Haiti recently, I decided to read a book I inherited years ago, but had no interest in until now. (The Black Rebellion in Haiti" by Pierre Etienne Chazotte, and edited by his grandson, Charles W. Platt) When I did some research, I learned that Pierre or Peter, is my 4th great grandfather and Charles W. Platt is my great grandmother's brother. In reading the book I learned that Pierre was one of only a couple of white people who were able to escape the massacre of multiple thousands in 1804, partly because he had American citizenship. The unedited version is in the Library of Congress. In my research, I stumbled onto Find a Grave, and discovered that many kind people had made memorials for a number of my ancestors, for which I'm extremely grateful. Some have become friends and are assisting me in further family searches! Thank you all! Especially my friend in Reno!
RE: P.S to Madge.... Hi Jan, Thanks for getting back to me with all those details. I never knew of a 1st Marriage! I've made note of them and will add them to my Tree as confirming certificates turn up.
Thanks for your help and please don't hesitate to ask if I can help you with anything.
I received the messages you sent. In looking at this it appears she is still living. I will do some more checking but if that is the case the memorial will be deleted. There was a guy who added lots of living people to this cemetery. I've had a lot of them deleted but have not finished doing all of them yet. When they were transferred to me I had no idea most were still living.
RE: Lorenzo and Lois Argyle Well, thank you for the Pat on my back. See, that 80 year old woman had no call to jump down my throat. I think she was mad at me because I'm 24 years younger than her. I help so many people. I'll photograph for you when Kent's stone is set.
