Vacherie, Becnel, immigration records?

Hey ya'll. I am so surprised by what everyone has posted.
My great grandmother was Marie Cecile Becnel, b.3-4-1874, d. 10-21-1954. Her parents were Thomas Lovincy Becknel and
Adele Elfer. Marie was from Vacherie, and I believe she was born there. We have a funny family story about her.
She mostly spoke french, and this was funny because we were told that the Becnels are of German descent. This info was passed down to me by my grandfather, Marie's son. I had no idea that there may be a British connection at all.

I have been looking for information on when the Becknel/Becnel family first settled in the U.S. because
it seems that Marie's husband's family were here earlier than 1736. Marie claimed that her family, the Becnel line from Vacherie were here before her husband's family.
(this apparently came up when they didn't get along.)lol
Does anyone know anything that can help. My grandfather is alive and well and I agreed to see what I can find out.
