I have been attempting to help a descendant find out more about his direct line. His grandmother was Alice Carlon, d/o Charles Etienne Carlon and Eloise Deslondes; Charles Etienne was the s/o Etienne Carlon and Josephine. And Etienne's mother was Marie Carlon, born in 1806 in Cuba, but died in New Orleans. As far as I can tell, the family were free people of color and must have had some status to marry Eloise Deslondes, a wealthy free woman of color. What do you know of your mother's lineage?
