Louis Du Bois, Sr

Biographical Information

The original settlement of Louis Du Bois and his fellow patentees survives today as Historic Huguenot Street, a National Historic Landmark District. The site includes the DuBois Fort, a colonial stone house built by one of Louis' sons.

W. E. B. Du Bois is said to be grandson of a loyalist descendant of Louis Du Bois' brother who left for the West Indies. Most of his descendants supported the revolution, though, and now, descendants of the family's "French father" can be found in every state of the union and in Canada.

Some of the notable descendants of Louis Du Bois include:[9]
