Land Grants From Bayou Castin To The Tchefuncte

In 2009 Anita R. Campeau and Donald Sharp published an extensive article detailing the British and Spanish Land Grants that had been recorded along the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain from Bayou Castin to the east to the Tchefuncte River to the west.

The article listed dozens of family names and the individuals who helped settle St. Tammany Parish beginning in the 1770's.

The article was published in the April , 2009, edition of the New Orleans Genesis, a publication of the Genealogical Research Society of New Orleans.
