They were Hugenots and were driven out by the Spanish to Manheim, Germany, and then to Coutrai, Belgium, where the De Bonte Koe or “Spotted Cow” started from. Arrived in America on the ship “Spotted Cow” on April 20,1663 (Michael was 9 and they were accompanied by Antoinette’s father, Thonnet Thomas) in New Amsterdam (now known as New York).
