I have done research on Theophile Perret and published several articles about him in Les Voyageurs,of the German-Acadian Coast Historical and Genealogical Society. I am a descendent through his daughter Mathilde Perret and George Henri Tassin, and their son, Charles.
Theophile spent 4 years at St. Joseph College in Bardstown, KY from age 12 to 16, then 1 1/2 year at Georgetown in D.C.
