Mary Eleonore Boyer and Rosine Elizabeth Boyer were sisters, born to Jean Baptiste Boyer and Maria Aurore St. Germain. Eleonore and Rosine are both my third Great-Grandma.
Mary Eleonore Boyer married Richard Marshall. Her daughter is Mary Lucinda Marshall . Mary Marshall Wright's daughter is Rubina Mae Wright Rutledge. Read more about her on Regis Marechal (Richard Marshall) and Mary Eleonore Boyer on this page.
This graph shows the lineage of the two sisters. When James William Rutledge married Mary Rubina Mae Wright, they had to have known their Grandma's were sisters and their Great-Grandparents were the same people, Jean Baptiste Boyer and Maria Aurore St. Germain. It was common at this time for cousins to marry, hence the phrase, "kissing cousins." Jimmy (as my Dad always called him Grandpa Jimmy) and Rubina would have been second cousins.
My DNA has strong hits to Jean Baptiste Boyer and Maria Aurore St. Germain.
I visited Old Mines in 2017 and here are photos and the story.
