- Nov 10, 2006Yea, creoles do have an interesting history.
I even found out my paternal grandparents shared
a common ancestor a couple of generations.
It turns out that my paternal grandmother's grandmother,
a Mulatto slave named Cidalise Desmarias and my
paternal grandfather's great-grandmother,
Eloise Jacques, were half-sisters.
They had the same mother, a Black slave named
Marie Louise Jacques but different fathers.
Cidalise's father was a white creole
named Jean Baptiste Desmarias ...
Eloise's father was a Jamaican or
West Indian known only as Jacques.
