I don't know much about Otis other than he was my grandfather. I am Matthew Richard Dargis, son of Richard Otis Dargis (Paul's brother). Most of what I see here is what my dad has told me. So I don't think I'll be much help. The spelling of our last name was D'argis, but then changed to Dargis. I heard, it was changed after the move from Montreal. I've heard rumors that we are descendants of The Pirate Lafitte. Don't know if it is true or not, but I've heard it a few times.
