Dyonisis Leon was the sponsor for Victoire Joseph Mercieron July 24, 1823in New Orleans, LA. According to the Sacramental Register of the Archdiocese of New Orleans Victoire Joseph Mercier was the daughter of Jean Dominique Mercier and Josephine Robin [various spelled: Aubin/Oben/Oubeine] and was born on August 10, 1822.
Other children of Jean Dominique & Josephine were: Jean Dominique, Marie Françoise, Marie Josephine and Elisabeth.
Jean Dominique, Sr. was a native of St. Surin, Bordeaux, FranceandJosephinewas a native of Cap François, St. Domingue. There appears to have been a large group of emigrees from Haiti who were living in New Orleans and standing as sponsors for each other's children during the first years of the 19th century.
I am most interested in finding information on these families. Other names include: Aubin/Oben/Oubeine/Robin, Ajaud, Audier Bruger, Cabaville, Dunjon, Lafosse, Lecam, Leon, Nantais, Norwood Rocheblave, Roup, Tasbon, Thiac/Theac & Touchet.
