Family notes:
• See Biloxi Land Holdings: 1821 & 1836 on CD.
• James is “Santiago” in Spanish, “Jacques” in French.
• Maria Juana Karcaux (Spanish) is Marie Jean Carco (French).
• 9/24/1799: “Dominico Ladnier wishes dispensation from the third grade of relationship to marry Genevieve Ladner. Dominico, a native of this province in the Isle of Venadas appeared before Bishop Luis and stated that arrangements were made for the marriage but they were informed by the pastor they could not be married because of the impediment of the third grade of relationship. Dominco is the son of Maria Carco and Santiago Ladnier, ... son of Maturino Ladnier, son of a Mr. Ladnier that died in France. Genevieve is d/o Marie Paquet and Nicolas Ladnier, son of Mr. Ladnier who died in Europe. Genevieve’s father is dead, and her mother is very poor with eight unmarried children. Dominico is 25 and single.” … (S) Bourquard, P33. [There are multiple errors associated with this citiation.] (S) L.O., P512.
• “This 26th day of September of the year 1799, I, Father Antonio de Sedella, Reglious Capuchin, Cure of the Holy Cathedral of the City of New Orleans, having fulfilled the ordinary formalitites, … joined and veiled according to the rites of the Holy Mother Church, Domingo Santiago Ladner, a native of Biloxi, District of Mobile, of Deer Island, legitimate son of Santiago Maturino Laidner and of Maria Carqueaux, with Benobeva Christianne Laidner, a native of Cat Island, legitimate daughter of Maturino Christianne Ladner and of Louise St. Martin, and they have given their mutual consent by mouth, were examined of the Christian Doctrine, confessed and received communion in the presence of these witnesses … and in faith I have signed.” /s/ Antonio de Sedella. (S) SLC, MB2, P124, A474. [From the previous citation and other documents, “Louise St. Martin” is another obvious mistake.]
• “On the 6th day of May of this year 1801, I, Don Juan Francisco Vaugeois, Cure of the Parish Church of Immaculate Conception in Mobile, while visiting a private place [of worship] on the Coast of Biloxi, and in this place having dispensed with the canonical banns, due to a lack of time, with a license by the Senor Bishop of the Diocese, and no opposition, canonical or civil, received the mutual consent of the contracting, by work of mouth, joined in solemn matrimony, Santyago Ladner, legitimate son of age of Santyago Ladner and of Maria Juana Karcaux, and Luisa Lafontaine, legitimate daughter of age of Pedro Lafontaine and of Ana Maria Desboise, also of this parochial diocese, having given their consent in the presence of witnesses being Juan Baptista Karcaus, Pedro Fayard and Juan Ladner, witnesses, who declare theat they could not write to sign their names, and I have signed the above on the 27th day of May 1801.” /s/ Juan Francisco Vaugeois. (S) CIC, MB1, P93a.
• From the collection of Francois Dierd: Piernas early made a grant to the widow of Baptiste Christian, who had lived at Biloxi since her birth; and a little later Mathurin and Carcaux obtained land at Dominion Point bounded south by the sea and east by “the mouth of the Bay of the Old Fort” (Fort Maurepas) for cultivation and other uses.
