Baltimore Maryland Huguenots

Posted: 1313119100000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Marsellas Marselas
Marselas Family-were cordwainers (Leather tradesmen) came to MD-lived /worked on Gay street- Had shoe store in early 1800's also a French hat shop-

They changed their name to Marselas.... Possibly came to MD in 1755 with the Acadian expulsion-as they were French but protestant-I found John Edason Marselas served in MD militia in War of 1812-also a James Marselas also in War of 1812

Would love to know more about them....any help out there?

any ideas?
