I am researching my family and I an a direct descendant of Elie (Le Juif) Juiellineau. I am signing your book because I know very little about my mother's side of the family tree. My mother is a Darveau. Her mother is a Laforce. My great grand parents were Alfred Laforce (married to) Marie-Marguerite Elise Girard (in Quebec). I saw the Laforce name on your site and am going to spend more time on you site. Thank you for this site.

I am looking for more info on William LaPlant/LaPlaint who married Harriet "Hattie" Coon. Hattie's family was from Beekmantown, Clinton Co., New York, and I think the William LaPlante born there in 1850 to Peter and Marie Mercier is the William she married.

Love your site. I am related to you via Jean Besset dit Brisetout, Francois, Clement, Antoine, Edouard, Moise, Theodule, M. Louise Anna Blanche Bessette - my grandmother. I also began this research into the Bessette line as I was told I was related to Brother Andre. I'm as close as you!!

Am I missing anyone from our family? Maybe, seeking Adeline Laplant on 1860 Census for Beekmantown
Do you have any pictures of our family? no
Do you know anyone else researching this family? Yes, if Adeline belongs to this line
I am seeking an Adeline b. 1843 in Plattsburgh. Her maiden name is murky. Leblane? Leblanc? Laplant just came up as a possibility as well tonight.

She had two families and family No. 1's identity remains obscure. From her obituary in Barre, Vermont, she died in 1934 after residing there for over forty years. She had two children in her first family (Clinton County, New York strongly suspected, surname unknown) and three in her second. The three younger children were born in Altona and West Chazy, and they moved while very young to Barre with their parents, grew up, married, worked and died there. As to the fate of the two oldest children from Adeline's first marriage, all I know is they were deceased by the time of their mother's demise in 1934.

There is an Adeline in the Jacob and Polly Laplant household in 1860 in Beekmantown. She fits as a potential child due to her birth year in the listing out of the couple's known children on this Web site. St. Joseph du Corbeau in Coopersville was the baptismal place of Adeline's second husband. Adeline's birth in 1843 fits right in between that of Charles and Sophie.

Is Adeline a Laplant by either birth or marriage? Thanks.

I found this site very interesting, more so because we are related to some degree, through the Gélineau of France; Bellemare being a variation of the Québec name Gélinas. As regards research for the Gélineau family, you might have a look at where new documentation is added regularly

Child missing from Moise Bessette and Marie Parent:

My grandmother Marie Louise Osite Bessette is a child of Moise and Marie Bessette. She is not listed on your website. She was born on October 1, 1883 and was baptized on October 2, 1883 at the St. Romuald de Farnham Church in Farnham Quebec. I have her birth certificate and a copy of the marriage contract between Marie Louise and Francois Xavier Wilfred Girard. Their marriage contract is dated January 25, 1907.

My grandmother died in 1955. My grandfather was born in 1880 and died in 1946.

Would you please add this information to your website.

Your website was very useful to me as I am just starting to research my family tree. Thanks for the information about our connection to Brother Andre.

I might have found Francois Xavier Bessette in the It lists F.x birth date as 1845, born in Canada. A shoemaker. Will try looking further. Also a correction in F.X. and Camilia site. It is Francois Olivier who was born in l872 not Francois Xavier.
Good luck and much happiness!

Sorry I have not been in touch, long story! We are going back to Rouses Point as soon as the weather breaks. Hope to have more time to research.WE have not been able to find gg-grandfather Francois Xavier. He is not buried in St. Patrick`s Cemetery. In fact, we were not able to find the graves that you sent to us. The lady at St.Patrick`s took us to the cemetery and we could not find those graves and they were not on her list. We found the three Bessette graves and took pictures of them. My son has a scanner and I will send you the pictures. Just as I got the info on Fx and Camille, I received a letter from Brother Boucher who was ill (He died in March). We hope to go to the Oratory too
and find out if anyone else continued his research.Let me know what you want me to find out and what graves you want pictures of and what families to look up.
