In addition to Dustisne 19 August 1773 letter to Governor UNZAGA, I'm seeking evidence that Johann SCHLATTER (dit Jean Jacques CHELATRE), who reached Manchac from Maryland on 12 August 1773 was originally from Alsace. Also evidence that his son Jacob was born in or near Strasbourg on 10 August 1752. Johann was married to Magdelena HEIMER (dit d'HEIMER) in about 1752. She was baptized on 8 April 1742, about ten years after she was born, in the Catholic Church at Adenau, in the then Rheinland-Palatinate. Magdelena died in Louisiana in 1818 and Johann in 1808. Their son Jacob married Barbe (Barbara) KLEINPETER. Jacob's brother was Martin, who was born in Maryland in about 1758. [query placed online 2/19/2019]

Jean Pierre or Hans Peter KELLER'S church records might be found at Waldhambach or Volksberg, Département du Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. St. John the Baptist Church Records says he's from "ROCHETARQUE" ROSTEIG Province of Strasbourg, near Waldhambach and Volksberg. Anyone researching this KELLER line, please contact me.

Leo C. Carmouche III
Temple  TX

I am researching the first CARMOUCHE to arrive in North America. His name was Jean Baptiste CARMOUCHE dit LORAN. He arrived in Mobile, AL in 1720, later marrying Anne CHENET and moving to New Orleans where he owned a home and lot on Bourbon Street. According to my findings, he also owned a plantation on the west bank approx. 12 miles "above" New Orleans. In Anne CHENET's succession, it states that property on the plantation as well as the property in New Orleans was auctioned off on 10/12/1778 but nothing is mentioned of the actual plantation. I would like to know if the plantation still exists in some form or another and it's location. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. [query placed online 8/15/2018]

Help me find info on husband/wife Alexander/Alexandre FORTIER, possibly Andrew FORTIER (born about 1861 died after 1900), who was married to Marie (maiden name unknown), (born about1862; died after 1920). Marie is mentioned on page 176 of OLD LOUISIANA PLANTATION HOMES, chapter XIX, as 'The late Madame Andrew FORTIER, mother of Andrew FORTIER [Andre/Andrew Norbert FORTIER] and Mrs. Mortimer WALTON [Stella FORTIER] - a relative of the late Professor Alcée FORTIER. Perhaps Marie was also a FORTIER? Stumped on all vital facts for Alexander/Andrew and his wife Marie. [query placed online 5/20/2018]
