Pierre Richard, Sr. DID NOT Father the Black Slavewoman Celeste
Posted by: Lee Crockett (ID *****8724) Date: May 23, 2007 at 18:06:18

A man named Harrison Thomas aka Harrison LaTour is now harrassing me on the Internet as I have proven him wrong regarding his LeBlanc, LaTour and Richard ancestry. I did this because Harrison had depicted my Pierre Richard, Sr. line as the parents of a Black child when at this point in time the Richard line had no Black blood. Ditto for the LeBland and LaTour lineages he claimed as his own. White plus White does not equal Black. This is not genetically possible. Nor is this a racist statement. I believe these Acadian lineages deserve to be accurately portrayed. If someone chooses to call me a racist for telling the truth so be it. I stand by the truth. Harrison’s revenge for my telling the truth was to portray my White Acadian ancestors as Black in his WorldConnect Project and post this information on the genealogy forums. This man is very mean spirited and very vengeful. All online researchers need to be very wary of this man and steer clear of him if at all possible. He can not take criticism nor admit he is wrong. It makes him vengeful and resentful and very, very malicious.

Harrison has now added additional insult to the Pierre Richard, Sr. line by portraying Pierre as the father of the Black slavewoman Celeste. He had already posted that Pierre Richard, Sr. and his son, Francois, were Black slaves owned by Blaise Brasseaux. I did the research on the 1825 St. Landry Parish, LA court case involving Celeste and this latest lie has not one shred of evidence to support it. See the posting below from Harrison’s WorldConnect Project.

I have stood up to this man and for doing so have been continually harrassed by him. I have had to remove all my WorldConnect Project files due to his harrassment. I can no longer post on the Genforum because he finds all my postings and makes remarks about my Acadian ancestors being Black. This is a lie. This is being done by Harrison out of spite and maliciousness. It is not right.


Anyone may contact me at my email address. I will be glad to furnish you further evidence of the maliciousness of Harrison Thomas aka Harrison LaTour.

Harrison LaTour 2007-04-16 08:57:09 1833 -- Homer LaTour
Homer LaTour age 28 in 1860 is correct dude. He was baptized in 1833.
1860-28=1832

I am sorry that you have a problem with the black/white issue.
Francois Francisco Richard who married Helen M. Brasseux is a black issue for you also.
Helen M. Brasseux was the daughter of Blaise Blas Blon Brasseux. Blaise Blas Blon Brasseux was the owner of Francois Richard.
