Surname Saturday - LA TOURETTE (France > New York)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week. I am skipping #501 (since I don't have a name for William Hutchison's (ca 1745-1826) mother) so I am up  to number 503: Marie LaTourette  (1734-1786).

I have done no original research on this family.  It is the link to the small portion of my ancestry that is of French descent, for which I am thankful.
