Baptismal Cert from 1788

First, I just noticed that this forum is about FPOC from specific states only. My ancestors were FPOC from Mobil, Al.

I just got a copy of my GGGGrandfather Augustus Chastang Baptismal registration, free Mulatto, March, 1788.(in Spanish) It shows the mother as Luisa, a free Negro and father unknown. This document doesn't answer questions I have, but other documents do show Augustus(Augustin)and Luisa's other 10 children the children of Dr. Jean Baptiste Chastang. He was not married to anyone else and passed all his wealth(including slaves) to Luison and his named Mulatto children including my GGGgrfather Augustus.

Since, one generation was missed, I need a lookup for my GGGrandfather
John B. Chastang b 1832-1837 Mobile, Al. I found him on the 1860 census, Civil War pension info, and again on 1880-1920 census in Jackson county, Ms. I still looking for the names of J.B. father and mother.

Can anyone help.
