Well I've hit one of those "brickwalls".My gg grandfather was Augustus I. DuPont. Birth Place SC. Year 1824.Well educated according to a Florida historian on the Escambia County Penscola Beach website.Moved to Montgomery Alabama married Betsey and my gg grandfather was born in 1865 after the smoke cleared from the Civil War.My ggrandfather was Whitfield DuPont and spoke 7 languages and was well known in Pensacola Florida. This was true I believe until the blight of segregation did its's work.What I want to find out is who was Augustus I DuPont's father and mother. Where did they come from.I have approached one of "the other DuPont websites" and e-mailed them only to see the statememt "I don't know why I got your e-mail" but had a link that lead to Augustus. Chicken perhaps? . Help!!! Is there anyone with information about (the apparently) Creole DuPont's? I am really confused. The Quakers may have helped them with education. Cheyney University sent me an article on my ggrandfather Whitfield.
Thank All for any assistance. I am Carol Dempsey
