I am seeking information on Desire Paillet. He was born between 1790 and 1800, either in Montreal or in the Illinois Country.He lived for a time near Ft. Miro on the Ouachita River(present-day Monroe, LA). He died in Caldwell Parish, LA between 1840-1850.Married Maria Espacilla Oliveau (Olivo)c.1820 in Ouachita Parish, LA. He was apparently the brother of Augustus and Abraham Paillet, who were also residents of Caldwell. Desire owned property at the SE end of Davis Lake near Columbia, LA.
Some researchers have postulated that his father was Francois Paillet, but I have seen no proof of that. I am interested in his ancestry, but primarily interested in his descendants.
