Notes for Miguel Romero: The book: New Iberia, Essay of the town and its people, by Glen Conrad gives a great detail of the history of the Romero's ----- Don Fransico Bouligny and a group of Malaguenos, as they were called, after arriving in New Orleans, set sail in Mid January 1779 for this area. They first settled the Charenton area and called it Nueva Iberia. Sometime in April the settlement was flooded, they picked up and moved to higher grounds on the Bayou Teche, about 26 miles. This is where the Spanish Settlement (by so-called Malaguenos) named New Iberia was established.
By 1792, a general census of the area was taken and Miguel was not in it. Apparently he had died. Marie, his wife was 53, the children: Joseph 27, Juan 15, Antonio 13, and Marie Bernardo 8.

The area of "Coteau" in Iberia Parish, next to Youngsville, was the main settlement of the Romero families.
