Hi, I hope that you still visit this site. I do not know you but I know about most of the stuff you typed in here. My name is Jean-Baptiste Coupet, the son of Pierre Coupet. I was born in Miragoane and at the age of 3 my father left Haiti for the US and my mother moved to Port-au-prince with 4 of us...and guess what! we lived at the house you described in your story. My father, Pierre Coupet, is your father's (Joseph Coupet) youngest brother and I had the occasion to know him when I was 19 years old in Chicago. The house you described is located a la premiere cite St Martin; this is where I grew up with Anna, a light skin lady and Madame Victoire as well until the age of 6. There was a school on the left side of the house which I attended until elementaire 2, and then my mother moved somehwere else for unknown reasons (was too young to be part of the decision). Dessalines Coupet was my grand father and we had lived together until he died at the age of 73. He was hit by a car and had some internal injury and later on, was unable to walk. I remember that day when Copernic Coupet (Yours and my father's cousin)and Gerard Coupet (Yours and my father's brother) came to take him to the hospital and some days later he died. That was devastating to all of us in the family...He was a real man. I do not know much about your father but only had the occasions to see him a few times and the last time I shook his hand was at my uncle's funeral (Ernst Coupet [Zik]), your father's younger brother. I know that your father recently died (my condelances)but I did not get the chance to go to the funeral. We are closely related to each other and I hope that some day we'll get the chance the say hello. My name is Jean-Baptiste Coupet and actually live in Florida. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters whose names are: Jean-Marie Coupet (Oldest) Wilmonde Coupet (2nd) Ralph Lewis Coupet (3rd) Jean-Baptiste Coupet [me] (4th) and Irma Coupet (5th)The youngest. We are all live in Florida. Hope to talk to you in the near future.
