And another update, a cousin on this bloodline went out to Batsto all day and searched the Methodist Episcopal Cemetery and the only Garoutte headstone that was legible was his grandsons headstone Joseph Garoutte. She is making another trip back there soon to take another look and she suggested that we get into contact with the Batsto Citizen Commitee so we can locate the headstone and or a document to prove the burial location.
If we never find the burial location for Garoutte and his wife we must assume he went back to France because he seemed to be too notable to be discarded or buried like he was nothing.
I see that this is quite an old thread, but I figured I'd post here anyways. I am another member of the Garoutte bloodline looking for information on where this tavern is located. I was hoping that someone may have more information now, several years later. I am trying to narrow down the area where it might have been.
