Favre History in Louisiana

Do we have any lineage in Louisiana following this line?

Jean “John” Favre (pronounced Fav) came to America as a French soldier to serve with the Louisiana troops. He served with LeVerrier’s company and was known as L’escarmouche. John met a young French girl, Marie Ann Arlu. Her family had come to America aboard the ship Marecehal De Villars. John and Marie had two children. Jean Claude Favre born April 16, 1721, and Jean Simon Favre born October 28, 1722. John died March 15, 1725 and Marie Ann remarried Francois Parent. Both Jean Claude and Jean Simon were interpreters for the French, English, and Spanish governments to the Choctaw Nation as early as 1754. Early records reveal that Jean Simon in June 1765, was ordered to Fort Tombecbe as an armorer. Simon refused to take the assignment claiming ill health. Governor Johnson ordered Jean Simon arrested and confined in the guard room of Mobile as a prisoner until September. He was then sent to Pensacola as a prisoner and detained in the Governor’s house for several days and then released. Jean Claude married Marguerite Wiltz June 7, 1759. Jean and Margurite had four children: Simon Favre, Louis Favre, Marie Rose Favre, and Charles Favre.
