Sorry, i have no information about your grand oncle. But, i can give you details about Bordenave names by itself:
-Bordenave is a frequent name in Bearn, a province in south of France, centered on Pau City, near Pyrennées moutains.
- In Bearn language, (which is an old local language, différent from french) Bordenave means something like "new house": In Bearn, a "Borde" is something between a farm and an house (could a ranch in US?)and "nave" means "new". So Bordenave = NewHouse.
-A Bordenave Ancestor was Quite Famous (just a little bit): Nicolas de Bordenave, historian, wrote in 1572 a book "Histoire de Bearn et de Navarre" (Bearn and Navarre History). This man was noble and Bordenave coats of Arms was:
"Blue background, with gold stripe including 3 rooster. Top part was with platter background , with yellow moon between two red stars". This description comes from "Armorial de France" book.
