Sy Scholfield quotes "University of the State of New York Bulletin" (University of the State of New York, 1919), p. 13: "He was born Pierre Maire, son of Frederick Maire who resided at an iron works of which he was part owner, in the old province of Lorraine, and who left the following record of his son's birth: 'My wife was confined at the forges of Ste. Marie on the 20th of April, 1754, at ten o'clock in the morning of a son who was baptized at the church of Attigny, in our parish, on the 21st of the same month.'"
