Charles was married to Marie Catherine Gerardu, possibly in Maastricht, Limburg, Netherlands, where their son, Charles, was born in 1810.She survived him and was still alive in 1835, living in Givet.
There are at least 15 Catholic churches in Auxerre with baptismal records covering 1772, so I have my work cut out for me to achieve the next generation.
I would like to hear from anyone with De France ancestors or relatives from Auxerre.
