Napoleon Bonaparte Goings, “free colored person” on December 14, 1835 paid $5,000 for E.
Miller’s Store in Natchez, Mississippi. Later he took bankruptcy, and the store was sold for the benefit of his creditors. He lived in Vicksburg, Mississippi in 1838. Later it was reported that he removed to New Orleans, Louisiana.

Napoleon” reappeared, still living at 431½ Poydras.
