Overview

A French Huguenot Legacy by Debra Guiou Stufflebean

From the Knights Templar to serving in the militia under George Washington, the Huguenot's have been keepers of the faith, fighters of freedom, and left their mark on history. The Huguenots were massacred in France in the 17th century when the Royals declared "one king, one law, one religion." Fleeing for their lives, and for the right to worship as Protestants, many walked away from lives of nobility. Jacques Guyon settled on Staten Island; Louis Guion settled first in Rye, then New Rochelle, NY. Follow their journeys and the lives of their descendants in a true French-American saga. Of particular interest to genealogists, with a supporting appendix, especially for those families who intermarried with the Guion's.
