BERNARD - ANTONI - FROISY

Email

Am looking for some clarification about André Antoine BERNARD, born about 1736 and died 1777 in Louisiana. He married Marguerite EDELMAYER in 1754 at Destrehan, LA. Some of his siblings are shown in Archdiocese of New Orleans records as "BERNARD" and the others are "ANTONI". His father is Bernhard ANTONI. Or was it a recording error and the father's name was Antoni BERNHARD? Are there any other records besides the listing in the Archdiocese records? Interested in contacting others who are researching this and the FROISY family. [query published online 8/31/2016]
