3. Marie de SALAZAR

4. Guyon TURGIS de St. Etienne de la Tour
5. Marie CONDOT

My lineage comes down as follows:

Marie Motin Latour/Alexandre Leborgne
Marie LeBorgne/Alexandre Girouard, Sieur de RU
Marie Girouard/Jean Mouton, MD
Salvador Mouton/Anne Bastarche
Jean Mouton/Marie Marthe Bordat
Alexandre Mouton, Gov. LA/Celestine Zelia Rousseau (1)
Jean Jacques Alfred Alexandre Mouton. Brig Gen'l CSA /Philomene Zelia Mouton (his second cousin)
Emelie Zelia Mouton/Alfred Aurelien Delhomme
Emelie Zelia Delhomme/William Butcher
Emily Zelia Butcher/Sylvester Edward Yandle
William E. Yandle/Edwina B Baham

My great-grandmother on my grandfather side was a Mouton
also. So I have three branches on the Mouton side.

PS: I will try and find out if book is still in print
and what it's availability is. May try and have our
genealogical society acquire it for the local library.

There are some royalty sites - see University of Hull in
England for European royalty.

There is a canadian site on acadians where I located ancestry of Latour and Jeanne Motin.

Surnames: Hebert, de Salazar, d'Entrement, Pajot, de La Tour
the de Salazar y Courcelles, Hebert, Pajot, de Biencourt de Poutrincourt, etc. are all cousins, (usually first cousins) before they came to North America. They show up in the antique history books on explorations of the New World together written by their contemporaries. The d'Entrement are also from the same family and have the same Spanish ancestry as Jeanne de Motin, the d'Entrement's thru the 2nd duke of Escalona. Contrary to popular anglocentric faux histories, the Spanish and French got to the new World because they had business connections and families were business corporations. Word of warning--- English people purchased fake genealogies in the 19th century to make our ancestors into theirs. Always cross reference old history books against succession records against church sacrement records.

Double check Hull University genealogy. In fact always double check English genealogy, they have been notorious for centuries for selling fake genealogies. I noticed a genealogy in someone's spanish line referenced to Hull which contradicted Spanish, French and Portuguese history and the surviving texts and records. They had confused mistress's children with wife's.
