Im not sure if you already have solved your puzzle..I hope you have. Mike was right in advising you that the Garant (d) family settled in St. Francois du Sud,
the first Garant(d) settled on the Island of Orleans.
My grandfather was Arthur Garant, son of Theophile Garant and Lucy Fleury, came to the states around 1910
I do have some information regarding the family tree
The Garant family was made up mostly of farmers and tool makers, not the rich type of stock, but good hard working people
