    • Prominent New Orleans banker, advisor, and friend of Jean Lafitte [4]
    • From a document by Bernard Marigny, Reflections on Jackson's Campaign

      Note No. 4.
      Jean Blanque, whose name appears in the recital of Alexandre Declouet to Abner Duncan, was born in Bearn. He came to Louisiana with Lussat, who was to exercise the office of Prefect in the name of the French Republic. He established himself and married a demoiselle Macarty, one of the most ancient families of the country who possessed a considerable fortune. He was among the number of naturalized Frenchmen who made great efforts for the preservation of our laws and customs. Never had a naturalized citizen in Louisiana played so predominant a role. His stature was above the ordinary. He was well made. His face was oval; his beard and his fine eyes, black; his nose aquiline; his manners were the manners of a son of a good family who had never ceased to frequent good society. Add to all that, he was always ready to draw sword or pistol. His diction was remarkable in spite of a Southern accent. His exordium invited a hearing. His narration was clear and connected. His peroration warm and filled with metaphors. It was impossible to hear him without remembering all that he had said, so correct was he. In habitual commerce with men he was patient, kind, human and servicable. After being received as a lawyer at the bar, he pleaded without exacting remuneration. His position in Louisiana was a handsom one; his future brilliant. In a country where the power of the word dominates, I ask all readers if a man gifted with so much intelligence, so many brilliant qualities, could have wished to ruin the state and the family to which he was allied by making overtures in order that free and independent state might become a miserable English colony?

    • There is a rather lengthy article, Citizen Jean Paul Blanque that may be of interest.
