There appear to be multiple conflations and confusions in the family. One of the duplicates is the niece of the other. I also think Benois Brasseur's mother is incorrect.
Are you referring to Fowke-5 - Elizabeth Florence (Fowke) Brasseur?
I am, though I will take this comment back and rewrite it as:

Benois Brasseur's mother is very intriguing - her name is not French at all, which leaves three possibilities - Benois was not born in France, or his mother was not Florence Fowke, or there is a very extraordinary story here.

A fourth possibility would be that the spelling of Elizabeth Florence's last name has been anglicised? Or un-Frenchified?

There is also a comment on Brasseur-2 that better documentation for his parents is needed.

About his birth. One of the merged records had "Pernes, Venaissan, Vau, France," as birth location. This refers to Pernes, now Pernes-les-Fontaines, a gorgeous village in Vaucluse which at the time was in Comtat Venaissin. Since Comtat Venaissin was a papal state it seems unlikely he was born there.
Thank you!!!
