I would like to correspond with anyone that has knowledge of military records available for French
officers during the French Revolution. Following is the info I have on my g-g-g-g-grandfather: I am
descended from Henri Louis Villaume DuCoudray. He was born in Holsteinborg, Holstein 1763, which is
now part of Denmark. His parents were French. HLV fought for the French from about 1792-1812. He
was wounded in battle and held captive in Cadiz. Some Mexican revolutionaries bought his freedom,
and he left for Philadelphia in 1812/13. He fought for Bolivar and lived on various Caribbean
islands until about 1822, when he returned to the United States. He died Albany, NY in 1839. During
his service in the military he signed his name as DuCoudray de Holstein. In the United States, he
went by DuCoudray-Holstein. His son dropped the DuCoudray all together and just went by Holstein.

the overthrow of the latter, went to South America, where he served under General Simon Bolivar,

Mere om samme Henri Villaume, eller rettere HLV Du Coudray Holstein...i National Archives (US),
mikrofilm, fandt jeg de originale registreringer af HLV Du Coudray Holstein, og hustruen Maria del
Carmen Du Coudray ankomst fra Curacao med skib til New York, dateret Apr 5, 1824. Det nok så
interessante der kan trækkes herfra er, at Henriþs sidste faste opholdssted er Tyskland (hvilket jo
sådan set også er korrekt!), og for Maria del Carmens vedkommende er det Spanien!! Hun er med andre
ord ikke Colombiansk! Hendes alder er her oplyst at være 24 år, mens hans er opgivet til 68 -
hvilket må bero på en misforståelse , eller ligger der måske et endet bag denne fejlagtige
