Born: 7 Oct 1778, St. Marc, San Domingue (now Haiti), son of Jean Couvertié (1738-1811) and Marie Ann Brandy

Couvertié came to New Orleans as one of the many refugees from San Domingue after the slave uprising there. His brother-in-law Pierre Lamothe (ca 1770 - ca. 1823) was also a prominent San Domingue/New Orleans silversmith, and his son Èmile Honoré Couvertié (ca. 1809 - 1866) continued the family trade as jeweler in New Orleans.
