  • Notes 
    • Pierre Trepagnier was a milita officer in Louisiana and served under Governor Bernardo de galvez in his campaigns against the English during the American Revolution. He was a wealthy planter in St. Charles parish. He disappeared one morning in a mysterious manner from his plantation, leaving his family at the breakfast table and driving off with an unknown individual, never to be seen alive again.

      Source: Stanley Clisby Arthur, George Campbell Huchet de Kernion, Old Families of Louisiana (, 1931), page 287.

      Pierre constructed a home now known as the "Ormond Plantation" sometime before 1790 near Destrehan, La., along the East River Road. The land was received as a reward by the Spanish Governor Brenardo de Galvez for his valorous activities against the English around Natches. Pierre, who became for a while a very successful planter of indigo and sugar cane, was involved in a tragic and mysterious end. In 1798 after a hasty whispered conversation with a stranger who refused to give his name to the butler. Pierre went off in a carriage and never returned home. Another account described Pierre disappearing one night with a man dressed as a Spanish official. After a year of agonized waiting, Pierre's widow left the house and sold it to the Butler family. Col. Richard Butler after the end of the War of 1812 settled here and named the house after the Ormond Castle in Ireland.
