My gr.gr. grandparents, ST.AUBIN, Jean Baptiste married to RENAUD, Esther are lost and I can't find them. According to one of their son's death certificate they came from Champlain, Canada. At some point they had to cross over to Champlain, New York as all their children were baptized in Ellenberg, NY at St. Edmunds Church. My search in Champlain, NY, and Clinton County has brought no results other than a list of their children's baptisms. The year would have to be in the early 1800's, as the earliest birth of their children that I have was in 1845. My grandfather spoke a lot about Mooers Forks and Rouses Point, New York so not knowing which counties these towns are in I am trying them all. I have a feeling that perhaps Franklin County or Essex County might be a good place to start. Any information at all would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me at LKearns596@aol.com Thank you

Looking for anyone researching the Brion and Brehio family, formerly of the Chesterville and Keesville area. Edmund Brion was born in the early 1850's, probably in this community, to Joseph and Marie Angelique (Desanges Fontaine) Brion. Edmund married Marie (Mary) Nolette 13 April 1873 at St. Jean de Baptiste church in Keesville, NY. Mary was the daughter of Francis Xavier Nolette and Felicia Gennte. She was born 1854 in Lewis, Essex Co. NY. Edmund and Marie had 12 children, 10 of which were born in Essex Co. NY. Their 12th child was my biological grandfather, born in Mass., after the last name was changed to Brehio. I am looking for other descendants of the Brions, many of whom changed their names to Brehio. We know of these children: Patrick Oliver, b. 1874; Marie Malvina (Viney), b. 1875; Peter b. 1877; Adele Jenaida (Ida) b. 1879; William b. 1881 d. 1884; Caroline (Carrie) b. 1883; Edmond b. 1884; Marie Rosa (Rose) b. 1886; Charles Lewis b. 1889; Marie Minnie b. 1890; Francois Robert (Frank or Bob) b. 1892; Ethel b. 1894; and William Nelson b. 1896 in Winchendon Mass. Any info on the families in Canada, or on the descendants would be of great interest! Thank you!

I am looking for verification of the following information on my great grandparents. According to information in my great grandmother's journal she, Zoe Dimond and her husband Francis Diamond (born in Plattsburg in 1858) (note both her maiden and married name was Diamond - different spellings) moved to Split Rock Lighthouse as Light Keepers in July 1889. My grandmother, Ellen Celeste Diamond, was born in the lighthouse on October 26, 1892. They moved to Pointe Aux Rocke Lighthouse in November 1892 and then to Crown Pointe Lighthouse in September 1901. Francis Diamond's father, Ambrose Diamond was a stone mason and eventually the whole family moved to Michigan in the early 1900s. Zoe Dimond's father was Nelson Dimond and entered the army in Sept. 1862 was was wounded in the Battle of Fredrickburg, again in the battle of Chancelloville and finally again in the Battle of Gettysburg. Any verification or additional information would be most appreciated.

They married in Boston in 1907. I have a copy of the marriage certificate. Edgar is the son of Ira Fosburgh supposedly born in Noyan, Quebec, Canada. I am working on this line now for a client in Colorado. I wondered if this summer home was that of an earlier Fosburgh family. I have a considerable amount of data on the Kaisers and Fosburghs if a local Historical or Genealogical Society would like to have it.
