    This site: - http://www.randolphcountyillinois.net/sub23.htm
    mentions "the Chevalier de Beret" giving permission for a marriage in 1747. Don't know if it would have anything to do with the "Chevalier de Brie" mentioned above.

    He died 8 months after he married his second wife and before his son, Pierre Joseph, was born.
