    • The Magloire Family History

      After the independence of Haiti in 1804,the news of a free black country spread throughout the Caribbean and other parts of North America. For many decades after, a great number of blacks, mostly slaves migrated or fled from neighboring island to Haiti. Around the year 1828, our fore-father Jean-Jacques Magloire left the then enslaved island of Dominica. He came to settle in the Northern part of Haiti, in an area commonly known as Bois-Gradis, in Morne Pele,the second section of the community of Quartier- Morin,Cap Haitian. There, Jean-Jacques established the roots of the Magloire family of Northern Haiti.

      Jean-Jacques had eight children seven boys and one girl. Their names were (in alphabetical order Desauguste, Eugène, Jean-Pierre,Julien,pierre-Jacques, Riché, and Urbain.The exact order of the children is unknown, however it is definite that Urbain was the first born and Eugène was the last. All of the children, except Eugène, were farmers and owned distilleries. Their principal crop was sugar cane, from which they produced and sold alcohol.It is suspected that their land was inherited from their father Jean-Jacques Magloire. Eugène did not follow the same path as his brothers and sister.Instead, Eugène Magloire enlisted in the army at a young age. He worked his way up to the rank of general and commander of the national army.

      Since the arrival of Jean-Jacques in the 1800's seven generations of Magloire have succeeded Jean-Jacques, five of which were born on Haitian soil. The descendants of Jean-Jacques have distinguished themselves in diverse fields, including, the arts, sports, farming, teaching, medicine, engineering, other applied sciences, the armed forces, agriculture, politics, tailoring, and business.

      For 150 years, the Magloire family has had its share of success and defeat. Clearly, the Magloire family name is historically infamous because of Paul E Magloire (the child of Eugène Magloire) who became president of Haiti in 1950. Unfortunately, when Paul E Magloire stepped down from power in 1956, he and the rest of the Magloire family became an instant threat to the Duvalier regime who took over. [Fearing the threat of a coup, the Duvalier regime set out to exterminate Paul E Magloire, the Magloire family, and any Magloire supporters]. Under Duvalier's reign, the Magloire family experienced its darkest and most terrifying times. Approximately, fourteen (14) family members were picked up by Duvalier's ruthless Tonton Macoute. Sadly, more than half of those detained have never been heard from again. Fleeing for their lives, the Magloire were forced to leave their country.

      With the intention to return, many Magloire took refuge to different parts of the World. Some went to Africa and other migrated to parts of the US, Canada, Bahamas, Belgium, the Dominican Republic, and Venezuela. Tragically, the majority of the family never made it back to Haiti. Over the Years, Haiti suffered greatly and people lived in fear under the oppressive dictatorship of Duvalier Foreign relations and trade became nonexistent, and the natural resources were ill-preserved. Haiti, the once rich and natural "pearl of the Antilles," which drew our fore-father to its shores, has since become home to terror, immense poverty, and anarchy.

      Currently, we are now spread all over the diaspora, with major numbers in New York and Florida. As the family continues to grow, many members have either lost contact with each other or have never met. Thus, this website was designed for two reasons. First, it was designed to detail the Magloire genealogy beginning with our fore-father Jean-Jacques. Second, we hope for the family to use the
      website as a means to reconnect with each other and share all of the moments missed.

      Presently, more research about our history is being conducted. However, your help is needed to correct mistakes and to fill in the gaps, There are children, events, and other details that probably have been left out. So we ask you to please feel free to send an email to correct and add more details about the family. In addition, if you have any stories and/or know of any archival sources that may help to give an accurate picture of the family, please share.

      Please enjoy the website.

    • Histoire De La Famille MAGLOIRE


      Au lendemain de l'Indépendance d'Haiti, la nouvelle de l'Emergence d'un pays noir libre se répandit à travers les Caraibes et en d'autres parties du monde, notamment en Amerique du Nord. Au cours des années qui suivent, un grand nombre de noirs, pour la plupart anciens esclaves, abandonnèrent les iles avoisinantes pour se rendre en Haiti.
      Vers 1828, notre arrière grand'père Jean-Jacques MAGLOIRe jugea bon de laisser l'ile Dominique jusque-là colonie française où les esclaves noirs affluaient, pour aller s'établir dans la partie septentrionale d'Haiti en un endroit communément appelé " Bois gradice " au Morne Pélé, deuxième section rurale de Quartier-Morin, dépendant de la Commune du Cap-Haitien. Ainsi Jean-Jacques planta les racines de la famille Magloire au Nord d'Haiti.
      Jean-Jacques eut Huit enfants dont sept garçons et une fille qui s'appelèrent (Par ordre alphabétique ) Désauguste, Eugène, Jean-Pierre, Julien, Juliette, Pierrr-Jacques, Riché, et Urbain. Bien qu'on ignore l'ordre dans lequel les enfants sont nés, on a pu savoir que Urbain fut l'ainé et Eugène le benjammin. A l'exception de Eugène, tous les enfants de Jean-Jacques étaient Cultivateurs et s'adonnaient à la distllerie. Ils cultivaient la Canne à sucre dont ils distillaient le jus sucre pour produire de l'alcool qu'ils vendaient en grande quantité.
      Quant à Eugène, il préféra s'engager de très tot. Il gravit avec succès les échelons de la Hiérarchie militaire et fut promu Général d'abord et Commandant de l'Armée Nationale.
      De l'armée 1828, date de l'arrivée de Jean-Jacques en Haiti à ce jour, sept générations de Magloire lui ont succédé; cinq d'entr'elles ont vu le jour sur le sol Haitien. Les descendants de Jean-Jacques ont brillé dans tous les domaines, dans les arts, le sport, l'agriculture, l'enseignement, la Médecine, le Droit, l'architecture, les Forces Armées, les Affaires, le commerce, et la Politique.
      Durant les Cent cinquante dernières années la Famille MAGLOIRE a cconnu beaucoup de succès et aussi des déboires. Le nom Magloirre restera fameux dans l'Histoire d'Haiti. En 1950 le Citoyen Paul Eugène Magloire alors Colonel de l'Armée d'Haiti et membre de la Junte Militaire de Gouvenement fut élu démocratiquement PRESIDENT de la République d'Haiti. Il dirigea le pays avec prestige durant Six Années, de l'avis de tous, les plus belles de l'Histoire d'Haiti. Quand le Président Magloire laissa le Pouvoir à la fin de 1956, toute la famille MAGLOIRE devint l'objet de persécutions politiques de la part de François Duvalier dit Papa Doc qui lui succéda. Ce dernier, mégalomane par excellence,craignant toujours un Coup d'Etat, n'hésita pas à créer des évènements pour ordonner à ses hommes de main de nuire à tous les membres et alliés de notre famille. Durant le règne de Duvalier, quatorze membres de notre famille disparurent sans laisser de trace. Les autres, craignant pour leur vie, durent abandonner provisoirement leur pays bien-aimé. Ils se dirigèrent vers l'Afrique, vers les Etats-Unis, le Canada, la France, la Belgique, le Bahamas, la République dominicaine, et le vénézuéla.
      La majorité de la Famille MAGLOIRE vit toujours en exil loin d'Haiti qui est devenu un enfer et qui végète dans la misère la plus noire. Pourtant avant la dictature de Duvalier, le pays actuellement placé parmi les plus pauvres de la terre, était remarquablement riche et attirait les touristes du monde entier. C'était la " Perle des Antilles ".
      Toutefois la Famille MAGLOIRE continue de s'allonger. Elle est en majeure partie à New-York, en Floride et qui pis est, certains de ses membres ne se connaissent meme pas pour n'avoir jamais eu l'occasion de se rencontrer.
      Ce WEB a deux buts distincts : a) tout d'abord pour présenter l'arbre généalogique de la Famille MAGLOIRE à partir de notre arrière grand'père Jean-Jacques; b) pour permettre aux membres de la famille de se rencontrer pour pouvoir jouir ensemble et rattraper les moments passés et perdus.
      A l'heure qu'il est, des recherches sont entrain de faire pour permettre de découvrir les erreures commises dans la préparation de cette adrees électronique.
      S'il arrive à quelqu'un de connaitre d'autres détails intéressant la Famille MAGLOIRE, d'autres archives disponibles, il voudra bien nous en faire part.
      Grace à ses racines l'arbre peut survivre, mais privé de soin et d'amour, il ne peut fleurir.
