VIEW MAPThe first four generations (above) were verified by me in March 2000 by viewing the microfilm of the Civil Records from Montursin, Doubs, France. Both Pierre Joseph Mairat and his son Victor Leon Mairat were mayors of the town which is right near the border with Switzerland (view map). Victor Mairat left France in 1848 and brought his family to New Orleans, Louisiana. They moved on to Richwoods Twp., Washington Co., Missouri. I have a copy of Victor Mairat's French passport that shows he came with his wife and 6 children. All of these children are listed in the birth records in France. The name MAIRAT soon becomes MARA or MARAT and finally MARAH or MARRAH.
