Henri Louis Ranson was the Attorney General at the Cabildo for a short time. He owned a plantation in what is now Algiers (The Naval Support Activity). He was married to Marie Francoise Gallot. We have documentation that he received a land grant from the king of France ( that was today's town of Vacherie in 1755. He and his wife evidentally left N.O. around 1765, she surfaced in France, with 2 children and pregnant, but no record of Louis. we are thinking he died during the journey from N.O. to France but can find no doucmentation.
