Any knowledgeable friends in French records/archives who can help locate records or evidence in France for Pierre Sire or his (possible) parents Jean Christophe Cyr Sire Coulon and Suzanne Thibaud? Pierre may have been born in Tourraine-en-Loire, ~1644. Or in Normandie, or in Poitou. A ship carrying Le Borgne and Bourge that arrived in 1668 for the handover of Acadie, Nouvelle France is the most likely mode of (Pierre's) arrival in Acadie and this was a French naval ship (from) Dieppe, France. Pierre's specific French Batarde handwriting indicates he had at least 10 years of schooling. His occupation was an Armurier, more probably a Suerrier.
