and look for correspondence between myself (Martin Gauthier) and Jerry Bordelon begining around Apr 2004 and you will get your answer.
I am a ggson of Michael. Are you a relative also?
I have recently posted my gauthier line on Ancestery.com. I'm the same person that has the 1500+ Gauthier database on the Avoyelles website that someone else refered you too. At that time I had not resolved the Michael connection.
If you are a descendant of Valcour Louis, then don't believe everything you see posted here and elsewhere. Many people are making the assumption that Michael's brother Lewis is Valcour Louis Gauthier. It doesn't jive with his death certificate, althought that could be wrong.
