Attached are the enslaved registries provided to us by the St. Charles Parish Court House. The original documents written in French have been transcribed to English.
The lists (.pdf format) are as follows:
- Slaves included in the 1782 Sale of the plantation by Guillaume Guignan to Robert de Logny
- Inventory of Slaves in the Estate of Antoine Robert de Logny, 1792
- Slaves Purchased by Stephen Henderson from the Estate of Celeste Robin de Logny, the Widow Jean Destrehan, 1825
- Slaves included in the Succession of Stephen Henderson, 1838
The U.S. Census Enumeration from 1840 to 1860 for Judge Pierre Rost does not provide the names of the enslaved. We know from the enumeration, by 1850, there were 210 slaves on Destrehan Plantation.
