205 Daughter of Charles Sessel, Sr. Not sure which of his wives is her mother. PIQUE, Lynne (I1929)
 
206 Daughter of Doma Nobilo and Ante Duzevich. Descendant of Giustina (b. 1815) daughter of Vincenzo Foretich Mom grew up on Korcula in the Nobilo home on Vela Glavica in Lumbarda. Brilliant, Mom aimed to become a mathematician in her youth. She earned a chance to go on to higher education in Russia, but due to dangers of travel in the WWII era, she could not go. We sensed her regret over that and other wartime loss and suffering, but we also felt her joy whenever she spoke of her beloved Korcula -- especially of the sea. In the 1950’s mom married my father, moved to California, and had five children. Happy at first, life in the US later got harder for mom. After a stroke left her mother Doma bedridden, my mother took care of her for over twenty years while working full time and raising a family. Mom also lost two children to tragic circumstances and my father to cancer before her. Mom was so strong – and such a great mom. Wewished nothing more than for my mom someday to have a chance to go back to see her beloved Korcula, but her health declined much in rcent years, especially in this past year. Wishing you peace and happiness as you embark on your journey to your angels and to a better place Draga Majka Moja.

240 During the course of his life, he had problems with French authorities and was subject to imprisonment several times. Despite his warm relations with Bienville, he was regarded with suspicion by some French authorities, because of his unique relationship with the local Native American population, due in no large part because of his half Indian heritage. At the same time however, he was a vital part of the French colonial operation, as he was often the one who was sent on trading excursions into Creek territory. In the 1740s, he had been imprisoned by French authorities on kidnapping charges related to an excursion he took to Havana, Cuba. He broke out of prison and took refuge in Native American villages north of Mobile. The native Americans refused to engage in any further trade with the French until he was pardoned. Governor Vandrieul petitioned for King Louis XV to drop the charges, which he did.

In the 1750s, Baudreau was imprisoned at the French prison on modern day Cat Island, Mississippi for charges of illegal salvaging wrecked ships. In 1757, soldiers stationed at the prison, staged a mutiny and killed the commanding officer. They took Graveline hostage and forced him to be their guide as they went into the hinterlands away from the colony. They provided him with a signed certificate saying he had not been a party to the mutiny. Goveror Kerlerec had him court martialed and he was sentenced to death. He was executed by breaking wheel in front of the St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 7, 1757. He is the only person ever to be executed in the America's by the breaking wheel. The French authorities subsequently mutilated what were left of his remains and deposited them in the Mississippi River. A movement is currently ongoing by some of his descendants to get the City of New Orleans to erect a marker in Jackson Square commemorating his life and brutal execution at that site.

In the 1740s, he began having an affair with a girl named Marie Henriette Huet, whose family owned a plantation in the area around modern day Portersville Bay. He had several illegitimate children with her, the majority of whom would use the surname of Baptiste (in modern day Mobile, this has evolved into Battiste). In 1747, while he was on the run from French authorities following his prison escape, the mother of his illegitimate children, Marie Henriette Huet, filed a claim with the French authorities for support of her children. The senior Graveline, the grandfather of the children, agreed to help provide for their support. Baudreau's affair with Marie Henriette Huet served as the basis for the book "The Passion of the Princes" by author Eloise Genest.

Baudreau was the 6th great-grandfather of singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the 6th great-grandfather of actress Diane Ladd, 7th great-grandfather of actress Laura Dern, and the 5th great-grandfather of Mobile, Alabama cook, socialite and television personality Connie Bea Hope.

241 During the Deportation of 1755, Charles was aboard a transport ship, the Pembroke, which was bound for North Carolina. A revolt onboard the ship, led by Charles Belliveau, of the Acadian men against their English captors succeeded and the ship was turned around and sailed up the St. John River to St. John where the Acadians disembarked. Some of the Acadians travelled on foot to Quebec where Charles died during a small pox epidemic that hit the area 2 years later, claiming the lives of many of the Acadians who had escaped the Deportations. MELANSON, Charles (I1043)

They were later to know him as the 33rd President of the United States. Family F30
