Looking for any and all info on the Copal family that might have lived in Lafourche Parish in the 1840s. My husband's great, great grandmother Emily Copal was supposedly born in Bayou Lafourche in 1847. She later married very young in Louisiana or in Texas to John Meyer (he came from Germany in mid 1850s) and moved to Galveston, Texas in 1860s. She lived in Galveston until her death in 1917.
Thank you for any and all info.
