Hi,I have not heard this name in our family. There are still a lot of my lines that take off from aunts and uncle's in the Bossier's I have to do reasearch on. Jean Baptiste Dit Le Brun(born in France in 1676) had three son's,one of them Francois Bossier is My 8th great grandfather. He had 9 children, and they all had large families,some of the son's, and were named after their grandfather.Down through the lines we all have kept names in the family.
Maybe a Bossier daughter married and gave their son her grandfather's middle name. This is what I have done with my son, his middle name is Debrun, this name came from dit Le Brun, but over the last 330 years was changed in our family line to the spelling of Debrun. I will see if I can find anything out for you.I do have a few people in Natchitoches I can contact to see if they know of this last name being intermarried into the Bossier's. We also know some of our Bossier women married into the Lafitte's but we are having trouble pin pointing them. It's like finding missing puzzel pieces, that are lost over time..
