George Saint-Aubin was born in 1828 in Martinique near the village of Vauclin, part of the French West Indies, and died in the state of Louisiana, USA in 1880. It is unclear wether or not he was a slave and was later freed or if he was born a free person as a decendant of Francois Saint-Aubin Desud.

When they (Mr Francois Saint-Aubin Desud and 'servants' ) left, the Islands in 1843, even though slavery was supposed to have been abolished in the early 1800's in the Islands, slavery was still an issue in the United States and slavery continued in the islands for some time. Immigration papers in the USA listed George as a "negro servant".

George Saint-Aubin was about 15 when they arrived in the United states in 1834 and was of multi-culture decent. It is belived he was the son of Francois Saint-Aubin Desud.

When Mr Francois Saint-Aubin Desud left the Islands to re-establish himself
in the USA was there a public auction of other slaves?

He George Saint-Aubin' married Albertine Fanon and they had five(5) childern in the United States.
