In Response To: hymel/raphael family,st james parish,louisiana ()
Elton Oubre has documented some of the families of Vacherie in his book "Vacherie...".
Many of the FPOC in the area, or their relatives, migrated from Orleans parish. Gregory Osborn has traced these fpoc from Orleans, St. John and St. James parishes in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. [Could the OSBORN listed in 1880 be related?]
The New Orleans Public Library contains many references and bios of some of these families. Also, CHERS (Creole Heritage Educ. and Resource Society) is assisting with the genealogy of some of the surnames you mentioned. Check their site for info.
