In your posting, a descendant/relative is listed as Jeanne (Catherine?) Gaston. You also list another unk Gaston (free black). Do you have any other information at all on either of these persons? Je suis Gaston du côté de ma mère. I have been in contact with a probable relative in France and others in Scotland and Ireland besides here in the U.S. and I understand there are a number in Spain and maybe Portugal as well. At the same time, I've also been in contact with a puertorriqueño Gaston who believes his grandfather was from Haïti. Apparently, Gastons got around.
If you could give me any leads to where this woman was from or what were her circumstances, I would greatly appreciate your assistance. This may be a very long shot but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask, n'est-ce pas? Thanks.
