I have a little bit on this LaTourette:

Granddaughter Nina Romeyn states in a letter to Verna Hill Jacob (in the mid 1950's) that they are buried in the Crocheron Vault at St. Anrews Church, SI.

*Not sure why, he was only a first cousin to Ann Crocheron? Perhaps he was re-burried here?

And this small item from the 1950's as well, author unknown:

In 1850 a number of members of the Reformed Church in Richmond (all Staten Island), residing at such a distance there from to render their attendance inconvenient organized a new church at Bloomingview, now known as the "Church of the Huguenots." A plain and substantial church building was erected on land donated by the Hon. Benjamin P. Prall, and the Rev. James A. M. LaTourette, a descendant of a Staten Island Huguenot family, became its first pastor. Soon after however, he resigned charge, having connected himself with the Protestant Episcopal Church.

I also found them in most of the census records.
