From: madison bell <mbell@goucher.edu>

Well, I picked up an oral history tale that somebody called Henri 
Louverture was captain of the personal bodyguard of Confederate general 
Nathan Bedford Forrest (a body of seven men, all black)-- and supposed to 
be a son of Toussaint.  Unlikely but not wholly impossible.  This Henri 
could not have been a legitimate son but Toussaint seems to have had a fair 
number of children andeyo-- and it's an interesting thought, for Toussaint 
and Forrest have a lot in common in matters of leadership style and 
military tactics....

anybody else ever hear of this one?
