In Reply to: MARY PARKINS and HUGH FOUCH by Elizabeth Bock of 274

In a 1793 family bible, Thomas Fouch (grandson of Hugh and Mary, who was 25 when Hugh died) wrote in 1824 that Hugh's family fled France after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685), and that his grandfather was born in America in 1696. He said that his grandmother was Mary Perkins (Parkins) of Bucks County. Since Thomas lived all his life in the same town as Hugh and Mary, he probably knew what he was talking about. The bible is now owned by a descendant in DesMoines, IA.
