Hi Rodney:

I think that we've discussed the Hisnard/Hinard family on another website. So I was interested in your mention:

" Pierre's other daughter was Clemence Marie MASSE by Francoise MASSE(but I dont know who this person is as of yet). Clemance married the free black, Pierre BARNABE. Now Pierre Esope SAM FUSILIER, the son of Etienne, had children by Clemance Hisnard, a free mulattress according to the records"

I've been researching the Hinard (Hisnard) family for many years. It's one of my allied families. Are you writing that Clemence Masse and Clemance Hisnard are one and the same person?

If you could tell me the years in which "Clemance" Hisnard lived, I could confirm that
Clemance, Clemence. Clemencia Hisnard/Hinard was the daughter of Francisco Hinard. The Hinard Hisnard family was infamous for naming their offspring after a relative and then calling themselves something different. Could you tell me what records you refer to "according to records".
