      Search for the marriage of Jean Grasset Latour and Marie Bertrand

      No marriage certificate concerning them was found in the Dordogne archives from 1793 to 1797 (Marie Généreuse was born in year 5 = 1797) nor in the township of Bergerac, nor in the township of La Force nor in that of Sigoules.

      Research conducted by the city of La Rochelle revealed no marriage of Grasset Latour/Bertrand in year 4 [of the Repubican Calender] in La Rochelle.

      The marriage could take place before the year 4 in La Rochelle or in another city, because Jean Grasset Latour was a soldier.

      Children of Jean Grasset Latour and Marie Bertrand

      - Marie Généreuse born 12 Ventose year 5 [2 March 1797] at La Rochelle, married 2 April 1835 at Bergerac with Élie Giron and died 18 February 1836 at Bergerac. (cf. Acts)
      - Magdeleine Cora born 6 Germinal Year X [27 March 1802] at Bergerac and married at Bergerac 19 January 1831 (cf. Acts)
      - Jean Homehara born on 26 Fructidor Year XII [13 September 1804] at Bergerac (cf. Acts)
      - Étienne Alexis was born 6 April 1808 at Bergerac (cf. Acts)

      [These children were young when their father Jean Grasset Latour died at Perpignan in 1811: Marie Généreuse,14; Magdeleine Cora, 8; Jean Homehara, 6; Étienne Alexis 4. Note that each child was given two first names.

      Bergerac is key to the roots of the Latour family traced on this website. St. Landry Parish records document the marriages of two brothers from Bergerac, sons of the late Jean Grasset Latour and Marie Bertrand. There, the older brother, Pierre Grasset Latour, weds in 1826 and the younger brother, Alexis Grasset Latour, in 1833.

      Researching the children of Jean Grasset Latour and Marie Bertrand in 1998, French genealogist Martine Duhamel found only two sons, both born in Bergerac: Jean Homehara Grasset Latour and Étienne Alexis Grasset Latour.

      Étienne Alexis and his Louisiana counterpart Alexis are clearly one and the same. Louisiana records are consistently within a year or two of his actual age; only the first name "Étienne" seems to have been lost in the passage across the Altlantic. The older brother Pierre Grasset proves more difficult to pin down.

      With the exception of marriage records and the birth records of two of his seven children, Pierre is known as simply "Grasset" Latour, even in his own death record. On at least one occasion, in 1846, he signs his name as "Grasset Latour" on a legal document. In the Federal censuses for 1830-1860 he can be found as Grasset Latour (under various spellings). In the 1830 census his age is given as from 20 to 30 years. Later censuses, place him slightly older, age 51 in 1850. The Church record of the death of "Grosset" Latour in 1860 at age 62, places his birth around 1798.

      Duhamel found no birth record in Bergerac of a Pierre Grasset Latour or other any child of Jean Grasset Latour and Marie Bertrand before 1802.

      Assume that there was a third brother Pierre born in Bergerac around 1798. Earlier records of the Grasset Latour’s in Begerac are patchy because they were Protestants under a system of state-mandated Catholicism in which the Church recorded vital records. But in 1798, Pierre would have been born under the French Republic when civil records were maintained, regardless of faith. So, there is no reason a birth record in the late 1790s would not have turned up during Duhamel’s research. At best, a third brother Pierre might have born someplace else other than Bergerac as his father moved about during his military career.

      As separate individuals, Jean Homeraha and Pierre Grasset Latour would have been born 5-6 years apart. However, there appears to be good reason for a young man born on 26 Fructidor year XII of the French Republic not to know his birth date. First, the arcane French Republican calendar system was abandoned the year after his birth. Perhaps more importantly, setting out for a new life in the Louisiana as a slightly older person would have had its advantages, not the least of which was appearing older to future in-laws when marrying their 15-year old daughter.

      It is likely that Jean Homeraha Grasset Latour and Pierre Grasset Latour/Grasset Latour are one and the same.]

      Aucun acte de mariage les concernant n'a été retrouvé en DORDOGNE de 1793 à 1797 (Marie Généreuse naît en l'an 5 = 1797) ni dans le canton de BERGERAC, ni dans le canton de LA FORCE, ni dans celui de SIGOULES.

      Des recherches menées par la mairie de La Rochelle n'ont pas révélé d'union GRASSET LATOUR / BERTRAND en l'an 4 à LA ROCHELLE.

      L'union a pu avoir lieu avant l'an 4 à LA ROCHELLE ou dans une autre ville, étant donné que Jean GRASSET LATOUR était militaire

      Search for the marriage of Jean Grasset Latour and Marie Bertrand

      No marriage certificate concerning them was found in the Dordogne archives from 1793 to 1797 (Marie Généreuse was born in year 5 = 1797) nor in the township of Bergerac, nor in the township of La Force nor in that of Sigoules.

      Research conducted by the city of La Rochelle revealed no marriage of Grasset Latour/Bertrand in year 4 [of the Repubican Calender] in La Rochelle.

      The marriage could take place before the year 4 in La Rochelle or in another city, because Jean Grasset Latour was a soldier.
