In Reply to: Pierre Derbigny by Kevin Derbigny of 57

Hello Kevin nice to hear from you!. It's been forever since I've been to this site! I found your input to be very interesting as it is somewhat contradictory to what I have read about 'our governor'. I read in a biography about Pierre Derbigny that he had 5 daughters and 2 sons with Felicite Odile de Hault de Lassus. I found this info on a website called Encyclopedia Louisiana. Here is a link to the aforementioned biography:

Thank you for your input Kevin. It definitely provides food for thought and highlights the fact that, whether Pierre Derbigny had sons or not, there is a very real element of misinformation in the mix that we all need to be aware of.Now I'm not calling you a liar.Far from it.You may be right. I don't know for sure if he had sons or not. That is why we are all here--to find out the truth. It can be difficult to sort through the sometimes conflicting and often obscure parcels of information about Pierre Derbigny but hey, that's what this site is for! ;-)I think if the Derbignys continue their dialogue here we can eventually get it all figured out. It is also interesting to me to see another Arthur Derbigny! I am curious to know who your grandfather is related to to have the Derbigny name.

Btw Kevin, I am also living in New Orleans and if you ever want to chitchat let me know!:)

Take care,
