Wesley -This goes way back, but a Prevost family - the mother and 2 children (Joseph and Sophia or Sara Sophira) fled St. Dominique (now Haiti) during the slave rebellion in the 1790s. The father who was probably Joseph Prevost was apparently a high official and murdered in the uprising. The Prevost family went first to Savannah, Georgia before settling in Charleston, South Carolina. Another descendant found a Cuban website associating the French family of Francois Nicolas Prevost with Baracoa. The article was confusing because it was Spanish translated into English. It first seemed to be talking about French families on the island of Baracoa, St. Dominique, but then discussed the slave rebellion and refugees to Cuba at that time and again mentioned Baracoa. I found a Baracoa, Cuba on a map, a port at the eastern end of the island toward St. Dominique, but did not find an island of Baracoa on Santo Domingo. The reason we think there is some connection with Cuba with our Prevost family is that Sophie (Sara Sophira) Prevost, one of the children mentioned above, was said to have been born in 1775 at Cap Francois, Cuba - and in 1829 there was a will linking the Prevost family in Charleston with a Destries and/or Delbos family at Santiago de Cuba. Let me know if you have ideas or if you find more about the Prevosts on St. Dominique. You may reach me at . Thanks.
