All Gregoires originally came from Convent in St James Parish. They were given a Spanish land grant when they came over from France in 1778. She is the sister of my Great Great Grandfather Victor Jacques Gregoire. Some of them moved to Maurepas area, some of them to Donaldsonville. Search for: Louis Mathieu Gregoire, born 1755 in France, wife Genevieve Phillipeau. I have a copy of his will. He was our first ancestor in the New World. Unlike others that came in the 1700's from New France in Canada after being ousted by the British, he came straight from France. Feel free to search my family tree.
