In search of my ancestral homeland.

Some interesting tidbits from http://rcranger.mysite.syr.edu/famhist/ranger.htm

“In order to marry 13-year-old Anne Girardy, Hubert received permission from the governor Denonville, presumably because he was a soldier and possibly because he was a minor.”

and

“The Ranger dit name was Laviollette. Was this a military alias, a fighting clan? It may be that the nickname “Laviolette” may have been given to Hubert Ranger by his older comrades in arms because of his extreme youth and good looks.”
