  • Notes 
    • Evergreen Plantation

      The important plantation houses on adjacent plantations in St. John the Baptist Parish now known as Evergreen and Whitney originally were identical houses built probably at the same time by two brothers, Christophe and Jean Jacques Haydel, sons of Ambroise Haydel. Their grandmother, the widow of Jean Adam Heidel, had, with two sons, arrived at Biloxi on the ship La Charente in 1721. One of these sons, Ambroise Haydel, had been born about 1702 in Newkirchen, and in 1724 was living on the Louisiana German Coast in the village of Hoffen.

      The house that is now Whitney was probably built by Jean Jacques Haydel and Evergreen by his brother Chrisophe in the 1780s or '90s. Christophe's daughter Magdelaine, the widow of Pierre Antoine Becnel, acquired full ownership of the plantation in 1801 from her sister Françoise, wife of Pierre Marmillon. One of Magdelaine's sons, Drozin, and his wife both died of smallpox in 1804, leaving their son Pierre Clidamant Becnel in his grandmother's care. On her death in 1830, Pierre Clidamant gained full ownership of the plantation by purchasing the interest of the other of his grandmother's heirs.
