Hello. My name is Jeffrey COUROULEAU. I am a descendant of a HOSCH line in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This is how I believe my line goes. I am definite through H.W. Hosch, and fairly certain about the previous two generations.
Jacob HOSCH (William's father) William HOSCH (Henry's father) Henry William HOSCH (Amelia's father) Amelia Carolina Georgiana HOSCH (Joseph's mother) Joseph B. BOURGEOIS, Jr. (Diane's father) Diane Bourgeois COUROULEAU (my mother) Jeffrey COUROULEAU
Jacob HOSCH came to New Orleans in 1854 on the Bark Edmund with his wife Elisabeth, sons Wilhelm (William) and August, and a girl named Elisabeth.
There does seem to be another HOSCH line in New Orleans that has roots in Missouri. I believe that they are now the HOSCH line that has settled in the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.
So, if you are a Louisiana HOSCH or HOSCH descendant, please contact me. Even if you're not of my HOSCH line, but have HOSCH roots in New Orleans or information about my family, I'd still like to learn about you.
