Re: Phoebe (Martineau) Gamelin ...Correction re. Terms Fils Majeur, etc.

Classification: Query
The terms fil majeur/mineur and fille majeure/mineure refer to a child being of majority age or under age (requiring parents permission) at their time of marriage. I don't know what the majority age was at this time in history. I erred when I interpreted these French terms as meaning eldest or youngest child.
