The Surname Passailaigue

I have found numerous spellings of the last name, and what I have found is that the spelling "Passailaigue" appears to be original and unique to America. There are around 20+ variations of the name, but the current spelling is found primarily in the United States and south America. Some variations claim Spanish citizens (Passalacqua) and other claim French Citizens (Passelègue).

The first mention of the name "Passailaigue" with this spelling is found in the United States in 1818 in Philadelphia. A passenger named "Mr. Passailaigue" arrives to the United States May 4, 1818 from Bordeaux, France aboard the ship "Hunter". Louis Passailaigue is the second mention who is 41 years of age in 1831 (his estimated birth year is 1790) when he arrives to Charleston, South Carolina. Eulalie Passailaigue is the third immigrant who arrives to the United States in the year 1843. She also arrives to South Carolina, which will eventually become the state with the largest concentration of people bearing th surname in America.

The Texas Branch of the Passailaigue Family Tree
Emma S. Passailaigue lived in South Carolina and was 32 yrs of age and the head of household for the 1870 federal census. She had the following children: John G. Passailaigue, Anita E. Passailaigue, Ernest S. Passailaigue, Louis F. Passailaigue, & Hope Passailaigue.Hope was the youngest of the children and in 1870 she is documented as being 2 yrs of age. The 1870 and the 1880 Federal Census of North Carolina do not document a husband for Emma or a father to her children. 

I am currently looking for more information on Ernest and John G. Passailaigue and their families.
