Please forgive my addressing you by David Paterson's name. David as you may know is the Forum Manager here. You can also read some of his essays in the Afrigeneas Library.
I found the information below about American states and the year that they entered the Union.
The first date is the year they became a state. The second date is the year that they were settled. They span the the years 1812 to 1858. The list includes the obvious states that needed slave labor for their agricultural lands.
18. Louisiana Apr. 30, 1812 1699
The above information, coupled with David Paterson's comments should help you to answer your query.
