Matern Family. Pictured are Jacque and Henrietta Scelson Matherne (Matern), descendants of Johann Adam Matern, one of the original families of the German Coast. Jacque and Henrietta raised seven sons on Tete de Morte, a privately owned ridge on the lower bank of Des Allemands about four miles from Lake Salvador, which has almost fallen to erosion.
