DNA: I had only the minimum testing done but others who have tested belong to haplotype H2a2a1a, so I would too. My maternal line goes to "Unknown" Marie who married Francois Gautrot around 1635 and has been validated by Stephen A. White, University of Moncton, Mothers of Acadia Project. Marie is #76. -------, Marie (m v 1635 Francois Gautrot) Founding Mothers of Acadia.

I don't know yet John Abshire's exact birth year, but it was mid 1700s... and according to the earliest document I have, he was in Louisiana in 1788, and he was from Germany...but could have been in Pennsylvania prior to Louisiana..I just don't know yet because I have no known cousins from John with the Abshire name...There are other descendants from John in wikitree, but I have not heard from them so far..
There is a question as to what his birth name really was, as Abshire is not a German name..The earliest document "copy" that I have has it spelled Abcher..but later ones have it as Abshire..I am hoping to get images from a couple of the original documents from Louisiana..I am in Oklahoma.
I'm sure there are descendants of John still in Louisiana..But I do not know any of them...
Has the Abshire family you know always been in Louisiana?

I am adding sources to Nicholas DeRoussel and merging a couple of profiles - Gravois (Marie-Celeste? Anne-Celeste? Celestina?) Unsure about her parents and think she may be sponsored or adopted? One of the profiles I'm merging has this source: "ROUSSEL, Nicolas de (Santiago and Luisa Margarita TELLIER of New Orleans) m. 14 Jan 1800, Celestina Gravois (Joseph and Luisa Francisca LaCHAUSSEE de St JULIAN) wit.
