Armand Duplantier Family Letters Armand Duplantier Family Letters

The Armand Duplantier Family Letters date from 1777 to 1841 and contain items from four generations of the Duplantier family, including Armand Duplantier, his uncle Claude Trenonay, Armand's son Armand Allard Duplantier, and granddaughter Amelie Augustine Duplantier Peniston.
