Dayries family in Louisiana.....
My wife is a Derise. We are from Louisiana and the first Ancestors to come in to LA had the name Dayries. This was about 1823 and were living in south LA. His name was Jean Dayries and he was about 26 yrs old at the time. He arrived in New Orleans on a ship called Jerome and his occupation was a clerk.
We have been trying to find out more about this family but have not found much yet. Some of the spelling of the name changed to Derise, Derisse, Deyries.
Looking for any information on this family or the the other spellings of this family.
