. ..Jean Laffite and Joseph Robidoux
Not available online
Title. ..Jean Laffite and Joseph Robidoux
AbstractPortraits and biographical article about the correspondence starting in 1818 between Joseph Robidoux (a Saint Louis businessman and founder of Saint Joseph, Missouri of French descent) and Jean Laffite (a prominent pirate in the New Orleans area moving to Saint Louis as a gun-powder merchant, also of French descent).
NotesPage 11: "John Andrechyne Lafitte ["great-grandson of Jean Laffite" and "at the present time a locomotive engineer for the Missouri Pacific railroad in Kansas City"] tells us he does not know when the Laffites changed the spelling of their name from two f's to two t's. Some recent biographers of Jean Laffite still spell his name with two t's, although Jean Laffite spelled it the opposite way as shown by his own signatures still in existence."
