Looking for descendants of Jacob de Marsac
My great-great grandmother was Elizabeth Nancy Marsac, born 1848 to Francis Xavier Marsac and Emily Sequin dit Laderoute.She married Paul Rattell in Detroit and their daughter Mary, married Francis Columbus Cottrell.That explains my connection to the Marsac line.I have researched back to the original founder of the line, Jacob de Marsac, born 1677 in Poitiers, France.Jacob was a first sargeant in Cadilac's army and came to Detroit in 1701.He received one of the first land grants in the city and has a very interesting history.
Although I know who I am related to, I know little about my ancestors or what became of the Marsac line outside my own family.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone researching the Marsac lineage....or some distant cousins.
