Was Blue Matrin Fugate Really a French Orphan?

Apparently we're all the hot news today on yahoo's homepage.

It's nothing new, it's the same old rehashing of the story of Benjy Stacy being born blue. (Check out the attached screenshot)

You can read it here:

My question is this: what is the evidence that Martin was "a French orphan?" As far as I can tell there were tons of Fugates around Virgina, Tennessee and Kentucky - and that they all were English or Scottish.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me? It's been bugging me for awhile.


PS In case you're wondering my g-g-g-grandmother was Ruth Fugate ~1814-~1870. Any matches or info on her direct line?
