Thanks for the update. I have Augustin born in Sardinia specifically. His son Jean (Juan) Constintin also born there. My granmere Graciuse Caro Maronge told me as little boy that she thought the Maronges were from Corsica. Do you have a cite regarding Augustin being from Corsica? If so please let me know your source. My source for Maronge in Sardinia I bleive comes from Fr. Hebert's records.
Also checking the current population distribution on Sardinia there are over 50 families with the name Marongiu. I found no Marongiu/Maronge listed in Corsica. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Dad is from Houma and now lives in his 87th year in Conway SC.
