>On another note, I have been looking over some parish colonial records and

>the parents of these New Orleans emigres.  They are listed with last names
>in the emigres' marriage records (bride is native of Jeremie, child of Jean
>Louis L'Herisse and Marie Peillon, for example).  Do these last names
>suggest to you that they were born free?  Or could they have acquired last
>names once they emigrated to New Orleans to satisfy naming practices in LA.
