Re: Personal Library--Registers of FPOC's

Hi Art:

I read your offer to look up information, so here I am.

I am very interested in Mobile, Pensacola, Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The reason for the many French and Spanish sounding names is because they lived in cities/towns that were part of the three Catholic parishes of St. Augustine, Mobile and Pensacola. France, and in particular, Spain owned most of the land in that region and beyond. Mobile had more of a French influence than Pensacola and St. Augustine.

The names I am looking for are:

Jose or Joseph Wyer, Wirar, Viure, Bier (1820) or later.

1780's to 1860
Euphrosine Hinnard or Hinard

Nicholas Maria Vidal (died in 1805) (Gov. general of war for Spain)

1800 and forward
Vincennes Vidal
Merced Vidal
Carolina Vidal
Salome Vidal
Marianna Vidal Crupper

Some of these cover the Second Spanish interlude, but after 1820, that area was handed over to the United States.

I appreciate any help that you can give me.
