I am not a Petry relative but I came across Petry Families in the Vermillion Parish Census.
Treville, 12 & Salina Petry, 5 (See Gaspard, Don L. )
Henry Petry, 36; Farmer (Germany ) Eurasie Toups, 29 John, 7 Ambroise ,2 Barbella, 9 f Elizabeth, 4 f
George Petry,49; Overseer; $3570(Germany) Selina Wofford, 42 (La. ) Mary, 22 George W., 15 Louis, 13
I came to this Petry forum because my ancester is also listed in the 1850 Census.I was hoping that someone had information on where the Imigrants from Germany that moved to Vermillion Parish Louisiana originated and are there any dates of arrivals or passenger list that might help me research John Hanse.
John Hanse, 35; Cobbler (Germany) Alexandrine Clement, 35 John Jr., 5 Jean-Baptiste, 4 Victorine, 2
