I have traced my linage back to a Pierre Deppe born in 1690 died in 1775, from what I can tell his father is Jean. I am getting too far back in dates and what I really need is a lead. There are thousands of parish documents from all over France. If anyone has even the slightly clue who peter or Jean is or where they were born, I would love to know. Pierre (Peter) as he was later called was a Huguenot immigrant if that helps anyone.
