Aspasia Mirault, a Mulatto, was born in Santo Domingo and immigrated to the United States in 1800 as a free person of color. She probably immigrated to the United States because of the unrest in revolution-ravished Haiti. As Ms. Mirault was not born in Chatham County, no county records exist concerning her date of birth, and marital or family status. In William Harden's Recollections of a Long and Satisfactory Life, she is said to have had a husband named Simon Mirault; however, no other sources confirmed the marriage.
