Thanks for the quick response. I'm familiar with the "dit" naming convention. I've not seen any reference to my family of La Portes (at least not once in the United States c. 1840) use "St. George" (or Sorel, for that matter, which is another "dit" variation).
My curiosity about that particular entry of "Moyse" and "Marie Gaudreau" was becuase my 2nd Great Grandfather was named "Moses LaPorte" - an Anglicized version of "Moyse." And, his wife was "Mary Goodrow," which is the Anglicized version of "Marie Gaudreau."
What I was wondering was only what Bev was referring to in her original post where she finds a "Moyse and Marie Gaudreau" in the context of searching for someone else on the name "LaPorte/St. Georges."
I hope this clarifies rather than further confuses.
I'm not particularly hopeful that it will turn up anything as there have been several others (on this board/group) looking into exactly this family group for years, but one never knows . . .
