I have a page from an old Fouche Bible that was written by Thomas Fouche. in it he says Our ancestors were French protestants. They fled from Britannia in France after the revocation of "The Edict of Nante by Louis XIV. The family name was De la Fouche. Hugh Fouche was born in America the year 1696 and departed this life the 29th of September 1780. { He married Mary Perkins, her family resided in Bucks Cunty Pennsylvania} Their first son, Isaac Fouche was married to Miss Mary McDowel, whose parents were from Armagh in Ireland, they were protestants. " I remember her Grandmother, Mrs. Mary Varnor, she lived to the age of more than 90 years, and never wore spectacles. She read much and taught many children to read, one of which was my wife's Mother.

Thomas Fouch, October 1824

Isaac Fouch, Sen. departed this life the 17 day of July 1794.
Aged 73 years.
Mary Fouch, his widow, departed this life the 30th of Sept.
1824, Aged 87 years

Thomas Fouch"

I have copied this verbatum, note he spelled his own name without the e on the end. Some of the descendants around here spell it Fouch also.
By the way I live in Washington, Ga. where four of the brothers first came to Georgia.
Hope this will be of some help to some of you other researchers.
Sincerely
Myra Edwards Maxwell
