I have written a 100 page history on this family, and would be glad to share any information I have in regards to this family. I am descended as follows; Jean---Jean----Paul---John----William-----Elizabeth, then finally to my family. I am seeking any information on my William La Tourette, who was born in 1793 in Staten Island, being the son of John La Tourette, and Elizabeth Merrill. He married a woman named Mary Anna Russell of New York. She was born in 1793 also, but the names of her parents are still a mystery, even though I have done exhaustive research on the New York City Russell family. She may have had a brother named John V. Russell of Jersey City, and Bergen Point, New Jersey, an oysterman who was born ca. 1797 in NY..
