Jay, I have made no connection between my Barras line and the Paul Barras associated with Nepoleon, etc. There may be one, however.
The father of the Jean Bara that went to the LA Colony in 1718 had another son named Thomas born in 1680. Thomas was the only other son I have been able to find so far. But I have not yet found out if he married or what happened to him. Getting that information may give us information on the continuation of this Bara (Barras) line or a dead end.
