No additional records have been found for either Pauline or Jean.

Research Notes

Records have shown his LNAB as Jeantrid, Jeantry, and Gentry. Records also exist for a brother, showing surname as Gentry. The spelling of GENTRY seems more likely, but additional research in the French records may clarify the correct spelling.

A brief search was conducted of the French 10-year tables 1813-1832 at Departement de la Gironde, searching in the "Blaye" and "Blaye-et-Sainte-Luce" locations. Some similar names were found, including Jeanty, Jeantet, Gantret; these have not been followed up in the registers to determine if there is a relationship to Jean Gentry.
