Jean Baptiste Pinta parents

According to transcriptions of the Archdiocese of New Orleans baptismal records:
20 Aug 1810, Juan Marcelino Pinta, paternal grandparents were:  Luis PINTA and Maria Juana FERTE
30 Sep 1816, Joseph Pinta, paternal grandparents were:   Luis PINTA and Maria Durna FERTE
The original French record for Joseph can be seen on the 13 December 2010 posting, but is very difficult to read.  

These are the only two pieces of information I have in my possession, which indicate the parents of Jean Baptiste.  Does anyone else have any other documentation to support this?

The following site also states that Luis/Louis Pinta and Maria Jeanne Ferte were the parents of Jean Baptiste Pinta, however, no documentation is listed on the website as proof:

If you have any additional documentation, I would love to know about it.  If you would like me to post it on the blog, email me.

  1. AND...we have the will of Jean Baptiste, which indicates his parents. Thanks for reminding me Judy! We know that the father was Louis/Luis. But the mother's name... Marie/Maria/Mary Juana/Durna/Anne/Jeanne/Jane. I imagine some of the discrepancy is due to whether it was a Spanish or French priest recording the event in New Orleans, and of course, deciphering the handwriting. What do you think? Any more documentation?
