I have wondered the same thing. The immigration records for Adam Trischl (the founder of the Triches in LA) state he came to LA aboard the La Garonne from L'Orient, France, listed his place of origination as Augsburg, Bavaria. They came over with the masses of other german immigrants to LA in the 1720s. All the other settelers aboard his ship also lists Augsburg as the town they came from. Anyone think the settlers *gathered* at Augsburg to depart, and were probably from surrounding towns/areas? And does anyone speak German and might know the derivation of "Trischl" might be?
