I am trying to figure out if there were two Ignatius French's ? Father and son or if Martin French had a son named Ignatius...I am trying to connect the dots for the FRENCH and NORRIS Families. [Maryland Catholic Families, from Saint Mary's County Maryland to Nelson County, Kentucky to Perry County, Missouri.]
I know that one Ignatius French married a Mary PEAK(E) and a Susanna B(ROWNE)? and an Elizabeth (Unknown)?
I beleive that Joseph F. FRENCH, who married Mary Anne NORRIS, his father was Ignatius FRENCH, but was Ignatius FRENCH's father also Ignatius FRENCH???
I am connected to the FRENCH Family through Emily Jane FRENCH who married John Miles DUVALL.
Any assistance with this FRENCH Family would be greatly appreciated.
