This is the baptismal record for Luce Henriette Tieraronne/Tieruranne, daughter of Modeste Rasteau, baptized 20 Mar 1787. Is this ours? One would assume so because Luce Henriette's death record also indicates her mother was Modeste Rasteau & she was 51 when she died. The baptismal record lists the Godparents as Jacques Cameau & Luce Rasteau, and states that Luce Rasteau is the aunt of the child. Note: Jacques Cameau & Luce Rasteau had two children together, Marseille born 1782 & Francois. The assumption would be that they were married, but we have no proof yet. Where did the name Tieraronne/Tieruranne come from? Where does Grandmaison connect? Can anyone translate this record? I have gleaned dates & names with my limited French. If anyone sees any errors or can shine new light on this, please let me know.
