  1. GP, I just saw this. Thanks for sending me the link. I did not know this. I thought the Filipinos settled first in California. Someone here told me they were also in Charleston early on working in the plantation. Most likely not as early as the Filipinos who hitchhiked on the galleons to Louisiana.
