    Notes 
    • See the attached History of the Garrigues Family for much more detail on Matthieu and kin.
    • http://garrigues.net/ provides additional details and history on the Garrigues family
    • Also:
      Matthew Garrigues
      Mathiew Garrigus
      Matthiew Garrigues
      etc.
    • There is no conclusive evidence of family lines before Matthieu. While it is commonly purported that his parents are Jean Garrigues (b. 1653, Perigord, Provice of Guyene, France) and Marie De Franchimont (b. 1657), there is no definitive evidence linking them. See Robert Garrigus' definitive work on this subject (attached).

      Despite the lack of evidence, it is commonly accepted that Matthieu is the son of Jean Garrigues, and this is indeed quite possible. I therefore provide this accepted history back to three known generations with the understanding that there is no definitive evidence of it's accuracy.

      Any ties of Matthieu Garrigues' progenitors to French nobility back to the 12th century are suspect, most certainly incorrect, and not included herein.

    Inscription: In Memory of Susannah Garrigues Who Departed This Life The 30th Day of Sept. 1746 Aged 67 Years And Also of Her Husband Matthew Garrigues Died Sept. 6, 1726

    Christ Church Cemetery. Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA, USA

    [Note: this plaque was emplaced in 2000 by Robert Garrigus, Bill, Bev, and Margaret Garrigues. It restates the inscription of Susannah's original stone which still stands. It adds a mention of Susannah's husband Matthew who was also interred in Christ Church Cemetery but for whom no tombstone is extant. The spellings are not the original French variants but are maintained as they are found on the original stone and in Christ Church records. In 2003, Christ Church historians cited this remembrance project as the major catalyst for a subsequent restoration project for the cemetery. It is now open to the public and the Garrigues/Garrigus project is one of the major reasons.]
