Census for German families in 1721

In a report signed 24 Nov 1721 "the German families which may compriseabout 330 persons of all sexes and ages are located twelve leagues above New Orleans to the left on going up the river on a very good soil.The Germans are divided into three bourgs or towns. As these people are very industrious it is hoped that this year they will have an abundant harvest and that they will succeed in coming years in making settlements in the colony."
