Records indicate that his family migrated from Switzerland to Alsace Lorraine before he migrated to America
Antonas Andermatt arrived New York in 18 Jun 1834 birth year abt 1811 age 23 departed from LeHavre, France on ship named Henry IV
1836 Alsace census lists surname of ANDERMATT in cantons of Brumath + Schiltigheim and Truchtersheim but unable to view any details. He had already migrated to America by that time but perhaps relatives were still in France?
He married Hortense Katterle (from Belfort, France) in 1835 at St Mary’s catholic church in New Orleans, Louisiana They had 8 children all born in Louisiana He built the original St Mary's chapel on the river road He died 1858 buried in St Michael’s catholic cemetery in St James parish, Louisiana
Any further light that you can shed is appreciated! thank you, Laurie
