Yes, I knew them well. Elsie's mom was Denise Pressoir. I visited Haiti in the early 1990s with my mother to meet her and the two remaining sisters at the time - Tante Julie and Tante Marcel. It was such a huge blessing to meet them and spend time with them! I stayed with them at their home on Ruelle Waag. Being welcomed and embraced by them was the best feeling! Ti Bob, Elaine and Elsie are close cousins. I have heard Elsie mention Jean Hogarth.

The first Hogarths went to Haiti in the 1820's during the Abolition Movement in the US and the Boyer campaign in Haiti to recruit African Americans to Haiti. Two brothers remained in Haiti - John and Henry -while one brother, George returned to the US. The brothers and sisters in the family photo are children of Joseph Hogarth, son of Julie Ferrer and Joseph Hogarth, son of Elaiza Chanlatte and John Hogarth, the first generation of Hogarth's in Haiti and our great, great grandfather.
