The profile for Reynier Piatt indicates that he was a soldier in the Carignan-Salieres Regiment in Canada, 1665-1668. Is that correct? The source given was page 153 of Verney's book (see that source listed below).  I don't know what name he would be listed under (he had several aliases, such as Thomas Fleurison). 

VERNEY, JACK. The Good Regiment: The Carignan-Salieres Regiment in Canada, 1665-1668. Montreal & Kingston: McGill-Queen's University Press, 1991. Appendix B, pp. 145-185. Page: 153

     Also trying to find evidence that his parents were John Pyatt Lafleurisson and Nancy Jane Miller.

I may have missed him reading the manuscript, but Library and Archives Canada has a manuscript of names for the regiment at The Carignan-Salières Regiment Document 1

I am also having problems finding where his birthdate (30 November 1649) came from.  And he is often said to be a son of a John Pyatt and Nancy Jane Miller.  John Pyatt (b. ca. 1610) supposedly died in 1660 in New Jersey, but that doesn't sound right at all.  

And Rene Piatt's supposed mother's name Nancy Jane Miller, which makes it unlikely he was born in France.  Nothing solid about Rene until his New Jersey land deed of 30 November 1677.  I wonder if that is where the 30 November of his supposed birthdate came from.  His alias Fleurisson sounds more like an origin in the Netherlands.  Maybe that is where the stories about being a Huguenot refugee came from.
