GUEST,pattyClink Origins: Lakes of Pontchartrain (118* d) RE: Origins: Lakes of Pontchartrain 17 Feb 10

I can't track down information I vaguely remember on 'curse all foreign money'--it had something to do with a financial bubble or panic, I believe, where certain money wasn't accepted for some reason.

And Poppa, I think you're right about circa 1830s. Natchez was flush and people were streaming in from everywhere to make a buck, and our brick streets in Jackson were being laid by masons up from New Orleans, and there was good money in various sorts of construction for the new capital city/town at that time, a Capitol (built 1833-1839), big hotels, etc. so it would be a good place your 'fortune to renew'.
