    I have one of those in my family. When my Great Great Grandfather arrived in the United States he changed his name from Lo Bianco to White to accomplish both ends. To avoid discrimination and assimilate more quickly.

    The Colonies' list of Acadian resettlement http://www.thecajuns.com/exile.htm

    I was sent that a couple months ago by a friend who had finally figured out why he had a number of Acadian/French-Canadian/Cajun/Louisianan relatives in his DNA matches when his ancestry was widely central/north eastern States.

    Ah, 280 settled in South Carolina. I always associated the Acadians in N. America with Quebec and Maine and then further south in Cajun-land, or Louisiana. However, this website corroborates the settlement throughout the 13 American colonies:

    History of French Immigration to America in the 1700's: The Louisiana Cajuns

    "French Immigration to America included a group of people known as the Cajuns of Louisiana. The name Cajun is a corruption of the word Acadian and these French-speaking people who were exiles from the New France colony of Acadia (now the Maritimes). The Expulsion of the Arcadians (17551764) occurred during the French and Indian War and was part of the British campaign against New France. The British deported over 11,500 Acadians to the 13 Colonies and some made their way to the French Louisiana colony and established the Cajun culture."
