Am I incorrect that Jeanne Masic Brunel is wife of Chretein "Christian" Maximillan Du Bois

+3 votes
I notice that some have found Cornelia Brunel to be a ficticious "wife" of Chretein "Christian" Maximillan Du Bois.  I have found reference to Jeanne Masic Brunel as his wife, and I have found some coherent documentation that makes this seem possible.  Am I following the wrong trail?

Yes!  You're on the wrong track.  Over the last 100 years, different[!] erroneous information has been published about this family at least five times.  Rooting out all these errors is difficult, but at least we are blessed that Monte Horton was actually able to find previously undiscovered records of this family, so the correct information is now known.  Extensive detail about the correct information and an attempt to understand the many errors can be found at WikiTree du_Bois-12 and associated pages.  I'm happy to correspond about this family in detail, but please start with what I have online.  Kimball G.

There is so much info on other relatives,this may be good documentation.
