  • Notes 
    • One child was born of his marriage to Elizabeth Duverjé (originally spelled du Vergier)--a son Hugues, upon whom was conferred every educational advantage that wealth and accomplished teachers could afford. With the aim of entering the Polytechnique School of Paris, he devotes his time chiefly to the study of mathematics. The dream of the young man's life was to cross the ocean, reach Paris, and enter this school.
      After a year in Paris, the youth returned to New Orleans--he was then nineteen--with a tale of remarkable adventures in the capital of France. He had not entered the Polytechnique. He did not spend his days as a student locked in a schoolroom--he spent most of his time as an inmate of the prison La Force, and some of the other political goals. This was due to the treachery of a false friend, a former French army officer Hugues had met in Philadelphia when on his way to France. The motive for the latter's action appears to have been to obtain easy possession of several thousand francs, which he had secured from the young Louisianian who, he thought, imprisoned on a false charge of conspiring against the Emperor Napoleon's authority, never would be heard of again. Through the efforts of the Marquis de Lafayette and other friends, young de la Vergne was released after a year's incarceration and the end of 1812 found him again in New Orleans.
