My Parents

MY GREAT-GRANDFATHER

The Infamous Antoine

My grandparents would not talk about him.

My grand-father told me one day he left with a “woman”.

My parents spent a lot of time trying to find him.

I finally found him when archives were digitized.

He had been sent to the penitentiary of Cayenne (Guyana) in 1907 where he died January 10, 1915. I could not find why he was sent there.
