Thomas Guerin came to Charleston, SC about 1680 with his brothers: Mathurin,
Francois, Peter and Vincent from St. Narzaire, Saintonge, France. They
were the children of Pierre Guerin and Jeanne Billibeau. The parents did
not come to America and were probably killed there. In adulthood, Thomas
married Mary Ford/Faure and moved to Morris Co. NJ.
He had three children, Thomas, Jr., Joseph, and Susannah.
