In my search for ancestors I found the name of a possible relative, Marie S(e)lan Verbeken, appears in the German Coast of LA (St. Charles Parish). She married a Thomas Leger in the middle of the 18th century. Since "Verbeken" is not a German but a Flemish name, I wonder how it got there.
Can any-one tell me the names of the 21 German families who where the first settlers at St. Charles Parish in the 1720's? I searched the Internet, but I only found out there were 21 families of settlers.
