    Euphemie: Wife of Charles Alexandre Grevemberg.

    Cornelia: Daughter of John Hampden Randolph and Emily Jane Liddell.

    Nanine: Full name- Anne Guillemine Nanine Bringier, member of an old and influential French family of Louisiana. Married to Duncan F. Kenner who built Ashland-Belle Helene for her.

    Marie Eleonore "Zelia": married Stephen Henderson when she was just 16 years old. Stephen was 30 years her senior. They purchased Destrehan Plantation after Jean Noel’s death.

    Margaret Louisa: Annansdale Plantation was designed and built for her.

    Varina: Second wife of the politician Jefferson Davis, who became president of the Confederate States of America.

    Laminda: Daughter of Thomas M. Green, Jr. and wife of Congressman Thomas Hinds.

    Catherine "Bonny Kate": Wife of John Sevier, who was an American soldier, frontiersman and politician, and one of the founding fathers of the State of Tennessee.
    Oh, I know who John Sevier is. I'm from Sevier County, TN.

    The name Sutton was the first to come to mind. It actually means "from the southern homestead," which I love for you.
