-Hi, I'm not of the proper spelling of the last name I'm looking for as it came from French and Spanish records in Louisiana.
My ancestor was Juan Grasey De Mel. Grasey has also been spelled Grassie and Garcia. I'm hoping the De Mel might help out with that. He was from Faia. He was born in 1756. His father was Joseph Grasey and his mother was Josepha Maria Vuiedos. Juan was married in the diocese of West Baton Rouge, Louisiana on 4 SEP 1785 to a nice Acadian gal named Marie Francoise Courtain.
If anyone can help find the correct spelling of the surname that would be great and if anyone knows what parish he may have belonged to in 1756 that would awesome. Thank you.
