Page 100 of the book "Around & About Paris", Vol. I, by Thirza Vallois, 1995,ISBN:0 9525378 0 X, says: "At the time of Louis XIV, prostitutes captured on the neighbouring streets were kept here to await deportation to New Orleans. In September 1719. 180 male prisoners were brought from the prison of Bicetre in the 13th arrondissement, to be married to 180 women. The couples were then chained to one another and marched to La Rochelle on the Atlantic shores, from where they embarked for Louisiana. Did they arrive? On what ship? Does a roster exist of these 360 New Orlean's pioneers? Jim, Charlotte, N.C.
