Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

The 6 Degrees of Jamie Fraser

Many of us know and love the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, well, Kevin has met his match!
Below are listed 10 people. Your challenge is to bring them back to Himself in 6 steps or fewer, but they cannot be direct links. If you do it as a direct link, your response will be wrong. The link can be a family relation or a shared event.
This challenge focuses on Part 2 of Dragonfly in Amber.

Example:
Ian Murray: Ian is married to Jenny, Jenny is Jamie's sister. good.
Ian Murray: Ian is Jamie's brother-in-law. or even Ian and Jamie spent the day watching owls to determine if they were missing part of their anatomy. Wrong. These are both direct connections - we need something else linking them.
Ian Murray: Ian is Jenny's son, Jenny is Jamie's sister. Wrong - young Ian wasna even a twinkle in auld Ian's eye during DiA.

Good luck, lasses. Let's see what you can do:

In alphabetical order:
1. Charles Gauloise
2. Johannes Gerstmann
3. Madame Laserre
4. Vicomte Marigny
5. Monsieur Parnelle
6. Portis
7. Vicomtesse de Rambeau
8 Mr. Sheridan
9. Nesle de la Tourelle
10. Madame Vionnet

If ye canna find all of the folks to make the connection, dinna fash yerself. Send in the ones ye can. Remember, the clan with the highest participation will earn an additional point. This game ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on March 6.

Please mail your responses in to highlandergames@ymail.com with 'The Six Degrees of Jamie Fraser' in the subject line.
