In Reply to: Re: Daniel Cobia born 1744 by Linda Swilling of 42

Linda, My mother died when I was born and I grew up with my mother's family, who were French Catholics in La. I am just now finding about my father's family. The Cobia's were from the south of France and were Huguenots. I am sure there Lafourcades in La. however if they were in the Charleston area, there are two ways to research them.They would either be Huguenots or Catholics as all French early on were. Contact Harriott Cheves Leland at huguenot@cchat.com or the Charleston Catholic offices for how to trace early Catholic French to the Charleston.This would include Summerville. All huguenots joined the huguenot socitey, they hold the Bible records, marriage, death,and cemetary records. The records kept however have become hard to read and were few. The Catholic Church also keeps these records. Huguenots later joined the Luthern and Episcopal Church's you could check these also.Please let me know what you find out and perhaps I can help you more. Perhaps we are relatives and I would love to know you. Love Angelique
