Jean-Baptiste Pointe-Du-Sable The Founder of The City of Chicago

Jean-Baptiste Point Du Sable was born around 1745 in Saint-Marc, a city of the French Colony of Saint Domingue, which 60 years later was to become independent and adopt the name of HAITI.  His French father was the captain of a ship called the “Black Sea Gull” and his mother Suzanne, a black slave in that city.  During a Spanish raid on the town of Saint-Marc, Suzanne was killed and young Jean-Baptiste saved himself by swimming to his father’s ship. Then his father sent him a Catholic School in France to be educated. At age 20, along with his best friend Jacques Clemorgan, he decided to move to the United States. The ship was caught in a storm near New Orleans and wrecked. Jean-Baptiste and Clemorgan escaped alive and made it safely to the land.
