This is one of the most impossible stories I've ever heard, and I've been trying to either confirm it or deny it as best as possible. Unfortunately, the connection is so long ago (7 generations ago, my 5th great grandmother) and neither documentation nor DNA has been of any help. Maybe you guys can take a crack at it?
The story is that Susannah Deakle (Deakle-10), who would marry Henry Miller (Miller-47314) and have a daughter, Susanna Miller Roberts, had two children out of wedlock.
Those two children are Andrew Deakle (Deakle-7) and Willis Deakle (Deakle-6) while she was still in Savannah, Ga. At some point, she sailed from Savannah, Ga to Mobile, Al. I have no information that verifies they sailed, but the two cities are quite far apart and are both port cities.
Both cities were also frequented by pirates at the time, and the largest known one was the famed Pirate Jean LaFitte (Lafitte-35). Andrew was born in 1802 and Willis in 1805, which means Susannah must have gotten pregnant in 1801 and 1804.
According to wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Lafitte
) Jean Lafitte had begun operating in New Orleans by 1805, which would've given him ample time to have met and impregnated Susannah on more than one occassion in Savannah.
I have not found any DNA or documentation records to verify the validity of this story, and so my thoughts lean more on the notion that this is likely a false tale; however, there is still the likelihood that this is true, so it still needs to be proven false or tree.
