"Dr. F. F. dusochet, father of T. E. Stone, was born in the city of Angouleme, France, in 1778. He was a soldier under the first Napoleon, and volunteered to go with Gen. LeClerc to the West Indies to quell the negro insurrection at Haiti. After eighteen months of great hardshuips, and the death of LeClerc from yellow fever, they were compelled to capitulate to the English and return to France, and, after the defeat of his beloved emperor at Waterloo, he came to America. He went straight to Chuillicothe, where he heard there was a chance for war with the Indians. He immediately volunteered to go with Gen. Brush to the assistance of Hull, who was threatened at Detroit. Before thwy were ready they heard of the surrender of Hull. Mitchell Dusouchet, father of F. F. Dusouchet, was born in the city of Paris and lived through the horrors of the reign of Robespierre. He was the father of twenty-two children - nineteen girls and three boys. F.F. Dusouchet was the twenty-first child. None of the name are now in existance except the few in America.

We next find Dr. Dusouchet on Gen. Harrison's staff, with whom he continued to serve until the close of the war. He went in company of Harrison to Cincinnati and in 1815 was married to Miss Catherine Sarchet, in the presence of Gen. Harrison, Finly, and all the notables of Cincinnati. Miss Betwey Harrison was one of the bridesmaids. Catherine Sarchet was born in the island of Guernsey, town of St. Peter's Port, in 1790. Her father immigrated to America in 1806, and settled in Cincinnati. She died in Spencer County, KY, February 21, 1881. Pierre Sarchet, father of Catherine, was born on the island of Guernsey about the year 1865, of Huguenot parents. He become a Methodist minister of the old school, and endured all the persecutions of that much persecuted people. His wife, Elizabeth De La Parelle, was also a native of the island, and a devout Methodist. The both died in Cambridge, Ohio, about the year 1828, their deaths being near together. ..."

See GARDINER, Vol II, Descendants of Patrick Dyer, pg 1:
"Patrick Dyer, parents unknown, was born in Maryland in 1680. H e died
September 14, 1724 in Piscataway, Prince George's County, Maryland . In that
county he married Comfort Barnes on October 12, 1702. Patrick Dyer i s pre-
sumed to have been born in the Maryland Colony since there are no rec ords of
him in the Early Settlers of Maryland by Gus Skordas which deals wit h the
migrants to the Maryland Colony between its inception and the year 16 80.
"There are two, possibly three Dyers who arrived before that year , who could
be his father. All three appear to have been born in England. The y are:
Peter, who was transported in 1665; Roger, who arrived between 1675 a nd 1680;
and Thomas, who migrated in 1664. I feel that the last one is most l ikely to
have been the father of Patrick, for the following reasons: Thomas mi grated
without assistance, indicating that he was a person of some means, and
financially able to attract a wife from among a few women who were i n great
demand; his son, or presumably his son, Patrick, named a son Thomas , which is
in the English tradition of naming children after their grandparents. ..."

Ward 2, Page 91. FHL 803688.

Annie Eagan is buried in the Pigott family plot in the Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetary in Cherokee, Iowa. The Monument is engraved "ANNIE, BELOVED WIFE OF CORNELIUS PIGOTT, Died Mar. 16, 1888, Aged 35 Years . May her soul rest in peace. Amen."

The following obituary notice appeared in the Cherokee Times:
PIGOTT - - At her home in Sheridan Township March 16th, Mrs. Cornelius Pigott, aged 35 years, of childbirth. By sacrificing the life of her child it was hoped that the mother's life might be saved but He Who "doeth all things well," ruled otherwise. The funeral services Saturday at the Catholic church were quite largely attended, and the remains were followed by many sorrowing friends to the Catholic cemetery. She leaves a husband and nine children to mourn her loss.

1860 U. S. Census, Newark Township, Essex County, NJ. Page 91 shows James and Margaret Eagan family containing Ann age 7. For copy see James ( 555). This record indicates that all of the Eagan children were born in New Jersey.

Since Cornelius and Annie were married in St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Newark, NJ, check church records for marriages of other children and of birth records of children. Earlier checked Church Baptism and Marriage Index, 1867-1876 without success. FHL 1378022, items 6-8; try earlier.

Check for index of 1870 census of New Jersey. Also check 1850 census when James was 40, Margaret 28 and John 2. A Bridget Eagan's probate index is at FHL 14381; she died 10/15/74 . The reference is made to will book T pg 121. However her Executor is shown as Ann rather than Margaret. If alive, Margaret would have been 52 and Bridget was 19. FHL 914207 is probate record. Check if Ann is referred to as mother.

Check Mortgage Index D-F, 1861-1899, James, 1876 G7 239 FHL 913093.

Check FHL 1378022, index of St. Joseph Church, for all Eagans. My notes indicate item 7 as starting point. Henry was born in 1857 and John in 1848. Their children are apparently listed here. 163, 98, 205, 211. Copy to computer.
