Tracing the roots of the Beauvais, Charrier, Guerin, Guillory, Nugent, Ortego, and Prestenback Families

The Descendants of Gerard Guerin

The Guerins do come from France with a Francois Guerin and his wife, Anne Blanchard, in the 1600s. I have not yet been able to trace this back down to my line, however.

So far, I have only been able to trace my line back to Gerard Guerin - born about 1818. He married Julie Aguillard in Pointe Coupee Parish on 6 Feb 1849 and the couple lived in Waterloo in Pointe Coupee Parish, according to the 1860 Census.

The 1860 Census shoes Gerand at 42 years of age and Julie at 21 (being born abt 1839). I have found numerous matching marriage records, so I'm positive of their marriage date - though, if this census is correct - Julie was only 10 when they were wed.
