Nothing further is known about Joseph Noel.
Saint Domingue was a French colony, located on the western part of the island of Hispaniola; it existed from 1627 to 1804, when it became independent under the name of Haiti. Its production of coffee and sugar was dependent upon slave labor, Saint Domingue accounted for a significant amount of the Atlantic slave trade in the late eighteenth century.
After the 1789 publication of the French Declaration of the Rights of Man declared all men free and equal, a Haitian revolution against the slave system ensued. It is during this time that Jospeh Noel served in Infanterie Legere, Legion de Saint Domingue, 1791-1793.
