Re: Information on Monty branches
Jean Monty's mother was named Jeanne Benoist born in 1666. Dominique Monty was born in 1667.
Jean Monty (middle name Baptiste) was born in 1693 in St. Bertrand de Comminges, Sarp in the Gascony region of France. This mountain village is approximately 1-2 hours drive southwest of Toulouse. I believe the name Monty derived from the name Montagne for mountain. St. Bertrand is in the Pyrenees, part of the Alps.
Jean married Marie/Martha Poyer-Dite-Lapintade. He met her in her native Chambly of Quebec, Canada as a soldier in the army of King Louis XIV. That is where he died in 1755, and where Marie died in 1796.
Marie's parents were Jacque Poyer-Dite-Lapintade and Marguerite DuBois. Their family dates back to the time of Champlain. Their ancestors knew him.
