Frances Louise GERARD (GIRARD) born early 1850's. She says on marriage license she was born in Greenpoint, Kings, New York. By 1875 she is in Chicago, Cook, Illinois where she married Oscar Felicien DUBUIS of Switzerland. In the 1880 census of Chicago, Cook, IL her mother Jane is living with them in her 60's and a widow. Jane states her place of birth as Ireland. I have conflicting stories which say Fanny was born in California-the daughter of a Jason GERARD> There is no proof of this and I am going with the NY information on the marriage certificate unless someone proves it to be different. I am looking for 1: Fanny'sbirthplace; 2: Fanny's father's name; 3: Fanny's mother's maiden name-port of entry and year of immigration to USA.
