My gr-grandfather Theophilus LaLonde was born in Ogdensburg, NY in 1837 to Louis and Mary (Marie?). His siblings were Antonio, John, Maria and Josephine. We only have oral tradition and I am trying to establish some history and paper trail. Any help would be appreciated.
I am on a committee for the Trombley House located in Bay City MI. It was owned by Mader and Joseph Trombley and is the oldest wood frame structure in Bay City. Their Uncle Leon Trombley was the first settled and his daughter, Ann, married Job Trombley, a fourth or fifth cousin. I have over 500 people who are connected to this family and trace their ancestors to Pierre Tremble'. Not all came at the same time and are descendant of other branches.
I saw a reference to Michigan Habitant Heritage Trombley article and several issues have pages with these relatives included. I would like to connect with you to see if the articles are available somewhere I could see them and if you have any additional information to the update you gave to Kay Vandeberg dated 24 Jun 1976. She passes this on to her grand niece. Of course, the spelling is a bit iffy. But we also have a couple of branches that do not connect back yet.
I am new to the group. I have read the Tremblay genealogy in the issues of Michigan's Habitant Heritage up through 1988. Is there a source where I could get copies of the pages that mention the Tremblays in the French Canadian and Acadian Genealogical Review in the 1960s - 1981?
Thanks for replying back. I have been working on this since I first saw the Tremblay genealogy listed in the Michigan periodical "Habitant Heritage" but I only could find the first issue where you recorded your line. Everything else I have been getting through the auspices of the American-French Genealogical Society in Woonsocket, RI. They have a good library with many reference material as well as access for Ancestry and the PRDH. Also, I downloaded your Tremblay line from this site and tried to follow it but the line gets progressively huge with each generation. I will look at it again so I can send you any information which you require. You can also fax me the tree back if you like and make any comments and I will respond back to you. My fax/phone is 401-568-8245.
I have recently done work on my Tremblay family line and would like to provide it to you if you are so interested. I have a created a gencom. file for this. Let me know if you are interested and how I can provide it for you.
Thank you for adding the link on the Native American vital records on the Mayflower Families site. I found Neg, a servant to Madam Thacher, who married Betty Cunnit. I've been trying to find the ancestors of my great-grandfather Alexander M. Thatcher, who said nothing about his background, for years. I'll have to research this couple and see what I find.
Hi James - I just started doing some research on what I'm was told is my Anishnabe heritage on my maternal grandmother's side. I would love to see any information you have on Frank and Louis LaJoice and Mary Lavake. Thank you!
My husband's great grandfather was James Frank LaLone, Amity, IA. His first wife was Eve Pierson. We believe they were married in MI. Frank (he used Frank, not James) was born in New York. His obit said he was born in Ogden, NY but family tradition says he was born on LaLone Island. One census states his father was born in Fr. Canada and mother born in Eng Canada. Have you done any research on this family?
Our small mention is on page 194...7a is my Grandfather Durham, but there were 10 children not 3 and his Mother spelled her name as Tinkess. I had no idea their actual name was Donges until I met Jim Tinkiss and he told me that you had done a wonderful background on this branch back to 1601 in Germany..I only have what he has in the book. I am quite facinated as there are a lot of spots to fill in. Amanda was the daughter of Davina Bush (and of course Barney) and I can go back centuries on Davina. Your Grandparents and Mother are good looking people. Jim did such a great job. I also now have a new little twig to add to our tree....Grayson James Urquhart arrived at 10:30 Aug. 30, our 4th Grandson but first Urquhart. Sharon
My Great Grandmother was Amanda Tinkess married to My G Grandfather George Edward Wells. Jim Tinkess gave me a copy of the book he did but our family line from Barney Tinkess he had little on. I was born not far from the property given to the original Donges (Tinkess) at Osnabrouck Centre. I lived approx. 15 miles west of there and this summer was on the road roughly where we figure the Tinkess family lived. I took pictures of of any Tinkess headstones that I saw but haven't uploaded them all as yet. Sharon
