    Before 1752 the year began on Lady Day, March 25th,. Dates between January 1st and March 24th were at the end of the year. Old Style (O.S.) and New Style (N.S.) are used to indicate whether the year has been adjusted. Often both dates are used.
    Picardy (Picardi) is a region in the northern part of France.

    The Edict of Nantes (1598) granted the Huguenots substantial rights in Catholic France. The revocation in 1685 led to a Protestant exodus from France.




    From Olde Ulster: An Historical and Genealogical Magazine, Volume 7 by Benjamin Myer Brink,"First Riflemaker in America an Ulster Huguenot." Contributed by Chaplain Roswell Randall Hoes, U. S. N.

    Prominent among the Huguenots of France, prior to the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, 1685, were the LeFevre and Ferree families, who, upon the revocation fled from thence into the Palatinate of Bavaria; met almost upon the eve of their arrival by the Germersheim succession war; at Lindan eight members of the LeFevre family were massacred.

    Isaac, the only survivor, fled with the family of the Hon. Daniel Ferree to the village of Steenweiler in the vicinity of the Black Forest, close to the border of the Grand Duchy of Baden. In less than two years thereafter the Hon. Daniel Ferree died, leaving a widow and six children. . .
