Hi Tracy
As far as the Hernandez surname check Spain and also check the Jewish lineage. The reason I bring up Jewish ancestry is because of the spelling of the name. Spanish names ending in Z have a Jewish heritage, but because of the inquisition they were forced to convert.

Hi! I My ancestors from Mobile, Alabama with the following surnames have Louisiana connections: LaFargue, Rabby, Neely, Daffron, Hines. However, I a specific interest in Arabi, Louisiana. My great great grandfather's brother, Jefferson Davis Neely, ran an abattoir in Arabi after the turn of the 20th century. I am wondering if he chose this place because his mother's last name was Hernandez. While everything indicates Frances Hernandez was born in Alabama about 1823, the 1880 census also states that her father was from Italy. I am wondering if that is not a mistake as I have not been able to corroborate this and there is a huge population of Canary Island people in St. Bernard Parish, the parish where Arabi is located. Also, while I am not an expert, I don't usually associate the surname Hernandez with Italy. I would be more inclined to associate it with Spain. Does anyone have any suggestions or food for thought on this matter?

I am researching the surnames of Walker, Norton, Daniels, Banks and Stevison. My ancestors have told me that we are Native American and African American descent. I am stumped on two lines.

I'm researching the Desbles name; it has also gone by the spellings
Desblaise
Desbla
Desble
Desply
Despless
Desplay
Great-great-grandma could not read or write; hence the records show many different spellings.
