I have written a 100 page history on this family, and would be glad to share any information I have in regards to this family. I am descended as follows;Jean---Jean----Paul---John----William-----Elizabeth, then finally to my family.I am seeking any information on my William La Tourette, who was born in 1793 in Staten Island, being the son of John La Tourette, and Elizabeth Merrill. He married a woman named Mary Anna Russell of New York.She was born in 1793 also, but the names of her parents are still a mystery, even though I have done exhaustive research on the New York City Russell family. She may have had a brother named John V. Russell of Jersey City, and Bergen Point, New Jersey, an oysterman who was born ca. 1797 in NY..
