DUPARC PLANTATION - Submitted by: Hazel M. Head


During my free time from my Family Reunion, I had an occasion to visit the DUPARC PLANTATION (located 35 miles from New Orleans. In the barn on the wall was a list of the slaves that were on this plantation. I copied the names in hopes that someone may discover their ancestor.

On the flyer it was listed as:
Laura: A Creole Plantation 2247 Hwy. 18 Vacherie, LA 70090
