Often listed as A.D. Tureaud, or Judge Tureaud. Sent by father to Santa Domingo after a series of embarrassing affairs. Went to New Orleans after an uprising there & met Marius Pons Bringier. At White Hall met Elizabeth (Betzy) at age 14 - he was about 38.
Marius built UNION Plantation for them.
Plantation Parade says 8 children, I have 6 listed. Perhaps some died young?

11/96: Trent James says that AD Tureaud had a black mistress and perhaps some Tureaud or Tureau are related - however I have no documentation of a direct relationship with AD Tureaud. Many former slaves took the family name. This was true with the Bringier family as well. (From William Bringier: I met with Lizzie Bringier in about 1948, she was in her '80's. The Bringier family had deeded her property close to the Hermitage where she lived. She remembered working in the Hermitage prior to the Civil War). Also see Grace King's accounts.
AD Tureaud had a nephew, Jean Francois Theodore Tureaud (1791) from Rochefort, FR, join him in LA in 1814 & was followed by his mother & two sisters. He married Claire Conand, daughter of Dr. Joseph Conand of NO. --- from Grace King.
