Meet The Volunteers


Suzanne Frederick

Suzanne Frederick was a member of the team that translated the late nineteenth century sacramental records found in the Wilmington Coffee Run Sacramental Register for the French refugees fleeing from the slave rebellion in St. Domingue at the close of the eighteenth century.

"I was born in Oran, Algeria, a city on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. My ancestors were of French and Spanish origin who emigrated there in the 1800s."

After completing her education, Suzanne taught physical education and studied ballet. In 1944 she met and married an American Army officer. Two years later the couple came to the United States. After their two sons were old enough, Suzanne resumed her career as a dance instructor. She and her husband, Frank, now reside at the Deerfield Episcopal Retirement Community in Asheville, North Carolina.
