Eugene Jean Baptiste Cormier is on the Wall of Names at the Acadian Memorial in St. Martinville, Louisiana Plaque 2-Right.[1]

Eugene Jean Baptiste Cormier was born on March 02, 1784 in Saint Domingue, Haiti, the son of Eugene (aka Jean) & Elisabeth Morel.[2]He married Marie Louise Deville on June 24, 1818. [3]

Together they had 1 child:

  1. Jean Baptiste Cormier
"Jean Baptiste evidently was among the St.-Domingue French who fled to Cuba during the Haitian rebellion in late 1803; he would have been age 19 that year. As a bachelor or a newly-wed, he most likely came to New Orleans with the flood of refugees from Cuba a few years later. Three of his sisters--Rose-Élisabeth and Marie-Victoire, called Éloise, also born at Jean-Rabel; and Marie-Renée, born at Môle St.-Nicolas, all of whom married at New Orleans--probably came with him. During the 1810s, Jean-Baptiste moved on to the western prairies".[4]

He died on January 31, 1831 in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana [5]
