|Baptismal certificate for Isabel "Buison"|
I have transcribed and translated this in the "Degrange/McMillan Correspondence" (kept on the Louisiana Histories page). Isabel Narcisa "Buison" is here described as the daughter of Susanna "Laurren" and "Juan Buison." Later, however, this name appears regularly as "Mouchon." Why the name is different here is a mystery.
