There is an excellant book on this subject called "German Coast Families", by Albert J. Robichaux. This tells how German & Swiss Families gathered at Lorient awaiting transportation to Louisiana. It tells when the various ships left and arrived. There isn't much information about Adam Trichel(Trischl), spouse and 3 children that came on the LaGaronne, but it gives the background of the situation and quite a bit of information on German families that Adam Trichel traveled with and where they settled in Louisiana. My theory is that when many of the German families went to New Orleans to demand shipment back to Europe, then settled to the south & west of New Orleans, the Triche (Trichel) family stayed where they were and dispursed in another manner.
