Portrait of Odette Philippe.
He was the earliest permanent non-native settler of the Pinellas peninsula. He moved to Charleston (from Haiti?) between 1810 and 1820 to make cigars on Bay street. After financial problems he moved to Florida. He was involved with shipwreck salvage in Key West. He settled in the Tampa Bay area by the late 1830s. He bought three lots adjoining Fort Brooke and ran three billiard parlors, a bowling alley and an oyster bar.
