In 1982, Jeter Grimsley (dec'd), an early CHAUDOIN researcher asked R. S. Sanders (dec'd), another early CHAUDOIN researcher, in a letter if they should consider the possibility that CHAUDOIN could have been a variant of the French surnames of CHADAINE or CHADEAYNE. He also questioned whether or not we should be looking at early New York for clues to earlier CHAUDOINs before Francois CHAUDOIN was in Virginia. ASH
