It just shows I will have to arrange a trip. :)

Why not indeed , at least you could go and see Saint-Zacharie .

From 1630 to 1689 I found several MICHEL families  in Saint-Zacharie, but nobody called Thomas.
Absolutely no GUIS in the village.
1690 and 1691 : no registers.

MICHEL is quite common, there are people called MICHEL everywhere in France. GUIS isn't and is mostly found in the south of France (Var, Vaucluse, Alpes Maritimes, Bouches du Rhone).

Quite right Heather, I searched for his death in Saint-Omer weeks ago and found nothing . Anyway I really can't imagine that the dead soldiers of a battle were registered in the registers of the city where the battle took place. Same thing nowadays.

Genealogie 60 answered that they never did any research in the Var département.
So, I just phoned them and they say that indeed they sold datas to Ancestry , they don't remember where the date and location of the marriage of this couple came from.
I suggested that may be the couple went north through France in order to emigrate in England, they may have settled a while somewhere in Oise and had a child who was registered in the parish registers  with the mention of the marriage. They agree it could have happened but there are 736 villages and cities in Oise . The task to find this birth is too big in this case .
Another possibility is that the date is no right , another Anne Guis married a Thomas Michel at another date ( not 1688 ).

I'l try to search Saint-Zacharie's registers to find Thomas and/or Anne's births , though possibly huguenots , the huguenots births often were registered in the catholic registers , but not the marriages.

Well, Hippolyte was born in Orange, not very far from Marseille , she may have had in-laws living there with a family burial cave in a cemetery.

Gosh, you're right. It will be the same certificate . Good thing.

The city hall of Marseille (which manages the graveyards) says that they have no Hughes , or Chiron Margaret . But she could have been buried in a family burial cave : but they have no Hippolyte Chiron .Do you have the papers concerning the cemetery plot (in this case they could find where is or was the grave)?

I ordered the death certificate and I'll sent it to you as soon as I get it.

So, she died 30 May 1938 (not 20 May ) and the body was transferred to Marseille. I presume she may be buried in Marseille.
I'll phone  and let you know .
