OK, I shifted this page about a bit, but I am pretty sure now it is under the correct title. Des means "of the", so the "of" in "Canton of Des Forges" is superfluous. Local use seems to be "Canton Des Forges" as well. - Conrad

  • The question is whether it is correct French to capitalise the Des. Once again, I suspect that it comes down to local usage, not actual period grammatical rules. After all, they didn't have automatic spelling or grammar checkers at the time, did they? - Cian Gillebhrath
