Frederic Pellerin inherited the Sorrel sugar Plantation in 1816 because his father, Gregoire Pellerin, was partners with Jacques Joseph Sorrel. Frederick went to Cuba to rescue Sorrel's nephew, Colonel Antoine Sorrel, who lost his Santo Domingo plantation during Haiti's revolution. (See the attached text regarding the Sorrell/Pellerin relationships: "The Sorrel/Pellerin Burial Ground" by Jarvis M Freymann)
Excerpt by Jarvis M Freymann......
....Jacques Joseph Sorrel became closely associated with Gregoire Pellerin, another rancher and farmer who had come to Louisiana from Acadia(Canada). Gregoire's plantation adjoined Sorrel's, and when Gregoire died in 1776, Jacques Joseph - a bachelor - became a trusted counselor to his former partner's widow, Cecile Prejean Pellerin, and a surrogate father and mentor to her four young children, Eugenia, Emelie, Frederick, and Marie Josephe. ....
In 1820, the St Mary Parish Census states that Frederick Pellerin owned 69 slaves and had 5 "free colored persons" at the plantation.
In 1830, Frederic Pellerin owned 98 slaves and had 14 "free colored persons" at the plantation. (See attached images: "Frederick Pellerin 1820 Census" and "Frederick Pellerin 1830 Census")
