Subject: Charles Petent family 1843

Surnames: Petent, LaVille
My g-g grandmother's family arrived in NY from Switzerland in 1843. Their last name was Petent, and I know that they spoke French. Does anyone have any ideas on how to narrow down the area in Switzerland they came from - or to find out more about this surname?
