I was going through old merge proposals and started to complete the proposal of Dubois-109 and Du Bois-12 ... but the parents were so dissimilar, I created an unmerged match instead.

Anyone care to weigh in on this?

Thanks! Liz

Oh please... let me add to your confusion:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chretien_DuBois

Preface page iii of this book https://archive.org/stream/historyofnewpalt00lefe2#page/n11/mode/2up explains why there is so much difficulty in naming the parents with any certainty.

You might also review this transcription: http://www.oocities.org/marty_graybill/Graybill/n000000t.htm

There is also this 'article' that incldues a number of citations to other works. http://wgscroggins.kueber.us/Dubois2_Chretien.pdf
