My mother, Mrs. Harriet Delespine Munro, was born in Charleston, S. C., January 17th 1784, and died at my home in Marion county, Ga., April 20th 1872. Her father was Joseph Delespine, a French surgeon, who came with the Squadrone under County D'Estaing in the time of the Revolution. He remained in Charleston three years after the birth of my mother, and moved to Norfolk, Virginia. From thence to New York city, where he remained several years and then made a visit to his parents who lived previous to the insurrection at Cape Francois, on the Island of St. Domingo. During his absence her mother accompanied her brother, John Russel, to Nassau, New Province, and was met by her husband on his return from St. Domingo. The family remained at Nassau till 1790, and moved to St. Salvador, where her father died. In the year 1795 she was sent to New York to be educated and married Edward Munro in the year 1797. With her husband she remained on St. Salvador till 1812, and moved to Daufuskie Island and remained till 1825. During the time she lost four children. From Daufuskie island with her husband and six children, she moved to Twiggs county; remained seven years and moved to Dooly county where her husband died in 1835. Geo. W. C. Munro
