Marriage of my 3GRGR-Uncle Charles

The marriage of my third great grand uncle, Charles Denis to Marie Letourneau in 1830 also provides further support for the LaPorte-Denis name interchangably with the Denis name.

In St Marguerite de Blairfindie, the family seems to have used "Denis" almost exclusively for period in the late 1700s and early 1800s. As the family moved further south to Napierville and worshiped at St-Cyprien, the LaPorte part of the name seemed to come back a bit.  At least this was the case of the marriage of Charles and Marie.

Here again, Charles (my 4GRGR) is referred to as "Charles Denis dit LaPorte" married to "Marie Guenet."
