Hi Frances, Thank you responding. My Marguerite was the daughterof Pierre Etie. She was born about1772at Destrehan, St. Charles Parish, LA. Pierre was born circa 1740 at Bordeaux, France. He died Nov. 21 1821in St. Mary Parish. My problem is with Marguerite's mother. I have her as Catalina Toupard, a native of Fort Chartres, ILL. My records showthat she and Pierreweremarried in St. Martinville, Parish of St. Martin, LA.I have never been able to finda confirmation of that. And otherpeopleonthe Web don'tshowCatalina as a wifeto Pierre. I imagine that thisis just amistakensurname, but would like to know for sure. Thanks.
