  • Notes 
    • Early in young manhood, Nicholas Noel lost his right hand. On December 31, 1831, he was working in his sugar house. He was dressed in a flowing cabeau, a type of long cape with wide sleeves worn those days.. The sleeve of the cape caught in a piece of machinery, dragging his hand and arm. Seeing the danger of being pulled into the machine, he called to a workman nearby who had a hatched to chop his hand off. It was a tragedy he later adjusted his life to. After that he always signed his name: "Destrehan, Maimed." [3]
