St. Martin family. | Tulane University Special Collections
Name: St. Martin family.
Historical Note: The St. Martins are descendants of Pierre Bauchet St. Martin, who immigrated to Louisiana from Canada, and who in 1758 was the owner of a plantation on the present site of Algiers. The family has had a long and distinguished record of public service. A large group of papers relate to Louis St. Martin (1820-1893), who was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1851, 1866, 1868, and 1884; was register of the United States Land Office for the Southeastern district of Louisiana from 1846 to 1849; and was the first registrar of voters in New Orleans.
