I can give you information on the Galatas family of Slidell, Louisiana (Bayou Liberty or Bonfouca). Francois Galatas I was the son of Joseph Vicente Galatas of Feronda, Alaba, Diocese of Calahorra, Spain. He was married to Maria Josefa Belen de la Pena of Cadiz, Spain. They and their children moved to the area north of Lake Pontchartrain known as Bonfouca (today Bayou Liberty area, Slidell). Was your grandmother Marie (Mary?)Galatas, daughter of Francois Galatas III and Josephine Lorenza Faciane? If so, you are a cousin of my husband. Marie's sister was Pauline Zoe Galatas, my husband's grandmother. You can contact me at if you want more information.
