Hello my name is Mike Delouis. I am trying to find out information primarily of the Delouis and Hyppolite families of which I am descended. My grandfather was Joseph Lucner Delouis, recently deceased and his Father was Derinvil Delouis, and his father in turn was Desilus Delouis. I have had trouble tracing the Delouis family as no one has posted information but of what I know they are the descendants of white french settlers that came over 150 years ago. I am also trying to find out about my Hyppolitte relatives. The story goes that three Hyppolites came from France. One stayed in the north, one went to the southwest, and one went to the east of Haiti. My branch was the one from the east around the Dominican republic. My Grandmother is Marie Myrtha Phillipe, and her mother was Elitane Cadesca, and her mother was Paulicia Hyppolite. Both my Grandmother's mother and her own Grandmother were strikingly tall mixed looking women with beautiful hazel and blue colored eyes. As far as I know Paulicia Hyppolitte, who would be my great great grandmother, told my grandmother that her mother was white and that her name was Antoinette Hyppolitte. Now my grandmother tells me she's not sure if it was that her mother or her gandmother was a white women. Anyway all I know is that the hyppolite branch of my family are quite tall mixed looking people with european features as well as the african influence. If anyone can provide any information that would be fantastic thanks.
