Toby
I ran across an 1811 City of New Orleans Directory and Jean Coulon was listed as a merchant and shopkeeper located at 15 Hospital. In the 1822 City Directory he was listed as John Coulon China Shop located at 165 Dauphine, and in 1832 Francoise Coulon had a China Shop at 49 Conde/Conti. Francoise was the oldest son of the first marriage so I guess he handled the estate of Jean Joseph Coulon and he then it appears opened another china shop. I did some checking on the addresses and 165 Dauphine is now 711 Dauphine and 49 Conde/Conti is no longer there, it has been torn down. It seems 15 Hospital was changed to 165 Dauphine then changed again to 711 Dauphine.
Went to the St. Louis Cemetery #2 and the lady at the gate was very unpleasant, seems you have to send in a request in writing with $10.00 for them to research where the grave is located in the cemetery.
