      Cornelius R. French was born in Newark, New Jersey, January 26, 1786. In 1809, he married the daughter of English immigrants, Esther Browne, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Browne had been born in Bristol, England in 1794 and moved with her parents to America at the age of two in 1796. In 1798, the Browne family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr. and Mrs. French settled in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where Cornelius practiced medicine. It is not sure where he received his medical degree but he attended classes University of Pennsylvania studying medicine in 1805. There is evidence of his practicing medicine in Baton Rouge as early as 1815, when he was the surgeon for the United States Army in Baton Rouge. He did not receive, however, his medical license in Louisiana until 1820. In all, the couple had eleven children, including two sons that died in infancy and one stillborn son. Dr. French was a respected member of the community and member of the vestry at St. James Episcopal Church.
