6 Abraham Markoe inherited the rich sugar plantations owned by his grandfather, Pierre Marcou. He moved to Philadelphia, PA about 1770 and was the first captain of the historic City Troop, organized as the Light Horse of the City of Philadelphia on 17 November 1774. Markoe, Abraham (I3999)
 
7 Abraham Poindexter Maury served in the Tennessee House of Representatives, 1831-33 and 1843-45, and in the State Senate, 1845-46. He was admitted to the bar in 1839 and practiced in Williamson Co., TN. He was a member of the U.S. Congress, 1835-39. Maury, Hon. Abraham Poindexter (I3963)
 
8 According to #146 (1606), Suzanne Garrigues was very young, maybe less than 20, when she eloped with Anthoine Latrobe who was himself rather young, maybe less than 25. To achieve that operation, he was helped by his oldest brother, Hélye. Thus Anthoine's marriage created some trouble between both families, since the complaint of #146 reports about a forced marriage implemented by a priest, Me Jean Fourton, on behalf of Hélye Latrobe, Anthoine Latrobe and Jean Cadurel, but without the consent of Suzanne's mother, Marguerite Prévensier, and of her guardian uncles, Berthomieu and Anthoine Garrigues, after the death of her father, Jehan Garrigues. It seems that the affair reached a happy ending, since an agreement was signed on 13 September 1609, and Anthoine and Suzanne's daughter, probably born afterwards, was given the name of her grandmother, Marguerite. Note that Suzanne's last name, Garrigues, is the one of Montauban's Mayor, M. Roland Garrigues, who welcomed the LIS attendees in his City Hall on May 9th, 1997. Apparently he had harbored no feelings of rancor against the Latrobe family from that old story! Family F982
 
9 According to #28, in August 1534 he hoped to have heirs some day. This means he was just married or going to be shortly, as can be concluded from newly found citation #47b (1562). Note that the royal notary of Monbéqui, Jean La Trobe, considers Anthoinette and Catherine as his cousins. Although younger than him, they were actually first cousins of his father, Anthoine Latrobe Pichot, Family F2334
 
10 According to #380a (1654) there had been a promise of marriage by Pierre Cortade, a farmer of Boubées to Marie Latrobe, but this apparently never materialized. Family F2818
 
11 According to #47, on August. 6th, 1561, Anthoine Breilh and Catherine Latrobe sold a piece of a vineyard to Anthoine Andrieu. Presumably it was a matter of the inheritance that Catherine had received from her father, Anthoine Latrobe (Pacharra). Family F3457
 
12 According to #47b she is the second daughter of Anthoine Latrobe Pacharra. From #28 (1534) we know that Anthoine Latrobe (Pacharra) did not have any heirs, just a hope to have some in the future.

She and her sister, Anthoinette, inherited from their father, Anthoine Latrobe (Pacharra) part of a vineyard in the jurisdiction of Monbéqui. 
Latrobe, Catherine (I8763)
 
13 According to Benjamin Henry Latrobe she apparently died "by the carelessness of a drunken nurse".
Benjamin Henry Latrobe designed the tombstone for his daughter in 1801.

14 According to family Bible, James Wallace Crockett died 3 Aug 1870 at 1/2 past 12 o'clock noon, age 22 yrs, 9 mos, 18 days. Crockett, James Wallace (I24006)
 
15 According to family Bible, John Cartmill Crockett died 21 May 1863 at 10 1/2 o'clock, aged 23 yrs, 6 mos, 17 days. Crockett, John Cartmill (I24008)
 
16 According to Henry Hoff, Anna's mother's name is usually spelled Dewees, not DeWees. In addition, he states that the "Baron von Blume" legend is sheer fabrication as the origins of the Antes family in Germany are well known.

Anna Margaretta Antes came to England in 1736 to complete her studies and stayed there as a teacher. Later she became Headmistress of the Moravian Girls' School in London and later in Fulneck. She was the second of eleven children.

Her sponsors were Hans Wolf Miller and Anna Margaretta, his wife.

17 According to his gravestone he was born 16 Nov 1813. Irwin, Robert Simpson (I11317)
 
18 According to Jean-Jacques Benoît, Bertrand was born in 1560. He lived between 1592 and 1595 in the mill of the Lord of Montbartier141 He died at the end of 1627 or early 1628 in
Villenouvelle de Fossat lez Montauban.137,140,142 This time period is according to family archives which include a contract dated 18 January 1628 for measuring the land for purposes of inheritance and a contract dated 31 January 1628 for dividing the real estate to the heirs. Both contracts involved his children. According to Jean-Jacques Benoît he died in 1630.

He is the one ancestor known to all Latrobe descendants today and at least to all those who attended the Latrobe International Symposium (LIS) on May 7 to 11, 1997 in Paris, Versailles and Montauban, France. (This was written in 1999. Since then our archivist cousin, Michel de Lafon-Boutary, found near the end of 2001 citation #422 dated 2 January 1664 showing that Jacques Latrobe, ancestor of the Catholic branch of Portet-sur-Garonne, was not the sixth son of Bertrand born in 1607, but belonged to the Mauvezin branch descended from Pierre Latrobe, most probably half brother or first cousin of Pierre Latrobe Garguy).

Bertrand is also a major relay in the genealogical chain of the Latrobe family, since remembrance of him has been brought by word of mouth until today; mainly because he was a Protestant leader and played an active part in the defense of Montauban besieged by the army of King Louis XIII of France in 1621.

Another important reason why he is remembered in the family may be that he was married when very young, only about 19, had numerous children, seven sons and three daughters, most of them surviving until adult age and themselves having many children, and all being told over and over again about their heroic ancestor, Bertrand, and the part he played in the siege of Montauban.

A third reason might lie in the fact that he introduced a new job within the family. After his
great-great-grandfather, Jehan Latrobe, who introduced the new job of miller in a farmer family, and after his father, also Jehan Latrobe, who introduced the new job of royal notary and should be regarded as the ancestor of the numerous and sometimes eminent lawyers of the family, Bertrand introduced the new job of carpenter, mainly involved in building water mills (and boats, as indicated by the old French word "fustier" used in #199 dated 1618), and should be regarded as the ancestor of the numerous and sometimes distinguished architects and engineers of the family. Moreover, by reference to his capabilities in command shown in the defense of Montauban in 1621, he should be also regarded as the ancestor of the numerous officers the Latrobe family gave to the armies of several countries.

Nevertheless like his grandfather, his great-grandfather and his great-great-grandfather, Bertrand began working as a miller at Monbéqui. When he married Anne Gasc in 1584, according to #74 the marriage agreement took place in the house of Pierre Gasc (presumably her grandfather) located within the village of Fossat near Montauban. In 1616, according to #195, Bertrand and Anne are said to be inhabitants of Villenouvelle de Fossat lez Montauban. And in 1618, according to #199, Bertrand was a master carpenter.

Nevertheless if we look at the map of Montauban area, we cannot find any place or village called Fossat or Villenouvelle de Fossat. The reason for that is that in the mid 1500's, the town of Montauban was surrounded by its ancient walls built after the town was founded by Alphonse Jourdain, Count of Toulouse, in 1144. On its northern part, the wall followed the bank of a small river, the eastern tributary of the Tarn River. On the northern bank, there were three villages: Montmurat at the confluence, Fossat upwards toward the East and then St. Antoine.

After St. Bartholomew day in 1572 where a huge number of Protestants were slaughtered everywhere in France, Henri de Bourbon, chief of all French Protestants (who was to become the King of France, Henri IV, in 1589) decided to strengthen the defense of Montauban, one of the biggest places controlled by the Protestants in France. Thus he ordered new fortifications to be built and, in doing so, incorporated the three villages of Montmurat, Fossat and St. Antoine inside the new walls. About the same time, the tributary of the Tarn River was crossed by a new bridge, well known today as the "Pont des Consuls", which connected the old town with the new district called "Villenouvelle". Consequently the names of these villages disappeared on the map of Montauban area, and they are only kept today as names of streets within the Montauban district "Villenouvelle", which is indeed one among the oldest ones today. Note that the new fortifications built by Henri de Bourbon around 1580 were razed by order of Richelieu after Montauban was submitted in 1629 to the royal power of his son, Louis XIII, which is the reason why the walls are not visible on the Cassini map established on the late 1700's.

As a result we now know precisely where Bertrand Latrobe lived with his wife and his numerous children. Additionally, according to #473 relating to the sale in 1682 by Jeanne Latrobe to her cousin, Jean Latrobe, of a house located on the Rue Delgarric and contiguous on the three other sides with three houses or goods owned by Bertrand's children or grandchildren leads us to believe that it deals with Bertrand's house. We now have a better understanding how, as a master carpenter, he played a great role, under the command of the Protestants chiefs, Duke of Rohan and Duke of La Force, in the defense of Montauban besieged by the army of King Louis XIII in the fall 1621 (see #212).

From #78a (1592) which was recently found in mid 2002, we learn that, from April 27th, 1592, and for a duration of three years and three months, Bertrand and his family rented their home at Villenouvelle de Fossat and left it to stay at the mill of the lord of Montbartier (from #70, in 1583 the lord of Montbartier was Baron Bernard d'Astorg whose wife was Anne d'Astorg), which is located at a place unknown to us. We may imagine that Bertrand then received an important order for carpenter work on this mill and decided to move there to do the work.

20 According to Renate de La Trobe. in an e-mail dated 9/19/06, Alexander II, Czar of Russia signed the patent of nobility for John Edward in 1855. By virtue of being the owner of Pajusby, he obtained Livonian citizenship on 18 Mar. 1864 and became 'Landrat' (head of the administration of the district) in 1875. The La Trobes used the coat-of-arms of the English Branch in 1864 (under the name de La Trobe instead of von La Trobe). de La Trobe, John Edward (I1582)

36 After his marriage he lived for a while in Aberlmarle Co. on the James River. He moved to Kentucky in 1792. Family F344
 
37 After Jean's death his legatee and brother, Pierre Latrobe, according to the will turned over furniture to his widow, Antoinette Darenes on 12 November 1612. Her son, Yzac Latrobe, farmer, was present In spite of his Christian name being the most important one in reference to the family tradition, Jean Latrobe was undoubtedly the youngest son of Jehan Latrobe and Gailharde Benoist, because in the two archive pieces (#108 dated 1601 - Jean-Pierre Benoist cited here should most probably be a first cousin - and #141 dated 1604) where he is named together with his brother, Pierre, he is coming as second. From the information available today, we have concluded that his father died when he was a very small boy, and that together with his mother and his brother, Pierre, he lived at his uncle Jehan Latrobe's house. Uncle Jehan Latrobe was the royal notary who introduced the new ideas of Protestantism into the family.

Consequently Jean was educated within the Protestant Religion. Jean spent his whole life in Monbéqui as a farmer, a traditional activity of many generations of his ancestors.

On 31 Oct 1612, Jean signed a will where he named his brother, Pierre, as his universal legatee (see #180). We now know the reason for that was that Jean had had no children. In his will, Jean declared he wanted to die as a Catholic and be buried in his ancestors' grave in Monbéqui. Therefore, apparently when death came nearer he changed his Religion from the one of his youth. To understand his change of religion, we have to resituate it within the general historical context and his own story.

By the end of Oct 1612, it is two and half years after Henri IV was assassinated by Ravaillac. As his son, Louis XIII, was then only 11 years old and therefore still too young, the royal power went into the hands of his widow, Marie de Medici, a strong Catholic, acting as regent of the kingdom. Fourteen years after the Edict of Nantes of 1598, the Henri IV's policy of tolerance was more or less forgotten, and the Catholic forces had taken advantage of the King's assassination to restart persecuting the Huguenots, a movement which finally led Louis XIII to order his army to besiege Montauban in 1621.

Of course the Montauban area, one of the few fortresses held by the Huguenots according to the Edict of Nantes, was deeply affected by this general tendency. Presumably Jean was impressed by the movement and ideas of the Counter-Reformation. He might have feared to be punished by God because of his Protestant faith, which was not even the one of his father, but that of his uncle. With the psychology of that time his change is quite understandable. 
Latrobe, Jean (I5535)

41 After the death of his sister and of his brother-in-law, Pierre Delbosc, became the legal guardian of his niece, Jehanne Latrobe, who, therefore, was still a minor at that time. Delbosc, Pierre Jr. (I5806)

46 Alexander and Jane raised thirteen children in addition to the fifteen of his, hers and theirs. In 1852 Alexander's younger brother, Samuel (1801-1852) and wife Mary Irwin Purvines (1805-1852) died within a month of each other. They had eight children, the eldest had been married but a short time to Jane's eldest son, Frank. The other seven, age 7 to 19, were taken in by Alexander and Jane. In that same year, Alexander's eldest daughter, Elizabeth P. Bone, died in childbirth. She left a six year old child who was also added to the family. On 16 Jul 1861, Alexander, himself died. One of George's children died in 1862, with George passing away on 31 Mar 1863, leaving his four orphaned children to be raised by their grandmother Jane. All thirteen of these children were considered a part of Alexander and Jane's family, in fact, the grandchildren always referred to Sam and Mary's eight as aunts and uncles. The family always referred to Alex and Jane as having had 28 children. Family F4136
 
47 Alexander and Margaret moved to Sangamon Co., IL, arriving in 1819, being among the "snow birds" who struggled hard for existance in the early years. The mills were so far away that they had to mash their own corn and lived among the Indians for neighbors. Family F4135
