Angelique Joubert

The following sent to me by Elizabeth Joubert of Kingston, Ontario 4 Apr 2000:

Written by L.O. Joubert (great-great grandson of Pierre-Honore)
Translated by Carol Joubert


In March 1788, at the death of Captain Pierre-Honoré Joubert, his wife, Genevieve Lafoy dit Laframboise was 41 years old. She was born February 2, 1747 at Fort Carillon and was baptized at Fort-Frederic by Father Bonaventure Carpentier, the chaplain at the time. She was baptized under the Christian name Charlotte, like her mother, who was born Charlotte Bonhomme of Sainte-Foye near Quebec. The deceased left 8 children: 4 boys and 4 girls, all baptized at Saint-Joseph of Chambly, where the Joubert family homestead was situated since the Seven Year War and the destruction of both Forts Saint-Frederic and Carillon.
During their 30 years of marriage together, the couple saw numerous joys and trials, among them the evacuation of the fort at Lac Champlain.
Here are the deceased in the Joubert family by alphabetical order:
--Jean-Baptiste, died at the age of 17, December 09, 1780.
Then 3 (should be 5) children are taken young:
--Marie-Genevieve, lived only from February 09 to June 11, 1765
--Pierre, lived from May 13 to September 26, 1766
--Jean-Francois, lived from September 14, 1767 to 1770
--Joseph, was born May 1773 and died July 27, 1773
--Toussaint, born August 16, 1785 and died September 05, 1775 (lived 22 days)
To brighten up this sad trail, let's look at the marriages:
NOTE: The parish registers of Saint-Joseph gives the marriage lists for the Joubert family plus the friends of Capt. Joubert-Sansregret and honoured guests.
The first Joubert marriage was Josette to Charles Grageon dated June 10, 1782 in Chambly. She was the eldest daughter and she married the son of Charles and Francoise Leblanc of Chambly. This latter couple lived in Chambly before returning to France.
The second marriage was Louis-Honoré. We will come back to this one later.
The third marriage was celebrated February 09, 1790 between Felicité (goddaughter of M. Hertel of Chambly and his wife) to Pierre Meunier, son of Francois and Louise Benjamin dit St.-Aubin. Louise Benjamin's mother was a Joubert from Saint-Denis, daughter of Pierre and Agathe Jarry. This is the only link between the Jauberts of Provence and the Jouberts of Poitou. It has not been repeated since. The marriage was celebrated by Father Joseph Plessis, a friend of the Joubert family. We know he became the 11th Quebec Bishop in 1806.
Eight years after the death of her father, Angelique married Jean Baptiste Gervais, son of Joseph and Angelique Gauthier (deceased). The date was September 12, 1796 at Chambly. She was 19. One witness to the wedding was Toussaint Ferriere, sieur of Buce, and an old friend of the family. Also present was another friend, Amable Monty, godfather of Joseph. The parish priest was J. Bethiaume who blessed the marriage.
This left only 2 children at home: Marie-Anne who was born in 1779 and Marie-Adelaide who was born in 1783.
In the parish registers we find dated April 28, 1800 the marriage of Marie-Genevieve Joubert, daughter of the late Pierre-Honoré Joubert and Genevieve Lafoi, her parents and Antoine Poirier, son of Jean Ambroise and Marie Pairault.
Where did this Genevieve come from? There is a Marie-Genevieve in the family, but she died in 1765 at the age of 5 months. We could speculate one of the girls (aged 17 and 21) exchanged her Christian name for her mother's who was still alive at the time or that the parish priest wrote the mother's name instead of the girl's. It's a possibility.
LOUIS-HONORÉ (1759-1817)
He was the eldest son. He was born in Chambly and was baptized December 20, 1759. We know little about him. He was a farmer at Coteau des Hetres (beech trees) and was a militia captain like his father at Chambly. There were 2 sets of troops at Chambly during this time. The first troop was under the command of Hertel de Rouville (organized November 03, 1812). Louis-Honoré enrols as captain for Saint-Luc. Under the second battalion you find Capt. Toussaint Ferriere under Beloeil. Both troops didn't participate in the victory of Chateauguay, according to this author. They stayed at Fort Chambly throughout the hostilities.
The parish of Chambly was broken up in 1801. Father J. Plessis-Belair became the first parish priest. Louis-Honoré's farm became neighbours to the new church.
Under marriage contract notarized in front of Mtre LeGuay, notary of Montreal, dated January 31, 1785, Louis-Honoré married on February 01, 1785, at Chambly, Elisabeth Cimon dit Delorme, daughter of Etienne and Marguerite Menard, of Montreal. They had a large family, part of which were baptized at Chambly and after 1801 were baptized at Saint-Luc. They had 11 girls and 3 boys. All the girls married young. There are lots of land sale contracts at the record office (notary LeGuay) between father and sons.
Family members are found all around Saint-Luc, Saint-Jean, Iberville, Saint-Gregoire and also, I think, Saint Helene de Bagot.
August 01, 1817, Louis-Honoré drowned accidentally in the Richelieu rapids, near his farm. He was buried on the third, in the parish cemetery. A few months later his widow demands at court thru a notary (F.X. Racicot) the right to sell some land situated at Coteau des Hetres, belonging to the underage children. Request is accepted and this is where we find out that the son, Louis-Honoré is absent from the province and is engaged in some kind of naval service in a strange country.
He was the eighth child and was born in Chambly on May 22, 1771. No doubt he was the first child in Canada to carry this name. Cpt. Joubert was obviously thinking of a visit or pilgrimage to Avignon, the city of popes, where the cathedral is under this saint's name and this saint is celebrated May 23rd. He was 17 when his father died. He should have already been an apprentice at one of the numerous mills along the Richelieu. He became a master mill builder. He married Marie-Louise Juteau (21 years old), daughter of Jean-Baptiste Jutteau and Louise Belanger, on October 07, 1805 at Sault-au-Recollet. He was 34 years old. The parish priest was Caboilley.
In the third volume of Marges d'Histoires by Mgr. Olivier Maurault, under the chapter "Les Moulins du Seminaire", the author mentions Didier and his 2 brothers Joseph and Hilaire as millers. All three were {members, partners or associates} of Messieurs of Saint-Sulpice. At the Sault-au-Recollet on the Island of Visitation, Didier mad ½ of the profits in a saw mill from 1810 to 1820. This is where he raised his 11 children. Unfortunately, only 4 survived into adulthood.
He died on August 03, 1821 after a long illness. It had been a year since his brother Hilaire had replaced him at the mill. He was buried on the 6th in the parish cemetery beside the church near the water. He had married without a marriage contract and he had died without a will. In October, Marie-Louise Juteau was named the guardian/trustee of her children before an assembly of parents which included Joseph and Hilaire. The notary was Dumouchelle de Sainte-Scholastique. Inventory included goods, 3 properties and 3 smaller pieces of land. Dated September 03, 1821. At the time, 2 of her sons were at the college of Montreal (ages 9 and 10). She was 37. Among the academic supervisors, there was a young Racicot. He ws no doubt poor and was paying his way to school by being a supervisor. It was a practise for a supervisor to wear a casock togive them more authority over the young and rowdy students. The practice continues to this day.
Some years later, on August 20, 1824, at the church of Sault-au-Recollet, Francois-Xavier, a notary clerk married her. (*This gets a little confusing: She didn't marry Francois-Xavier, she married Racicot and the ceramony was performed by Francois-Xavier.) In 1825, the couple baptized two children, a boy and a girl (twins). Unfortunately, they both died during the year. A second daughter was born January 27th, 1827 and married October 13, 1845 to Francois-Theophile Langevin, also a notary.
Marie-Louise Juteau/Racicot died November 02, 1831. She was buried in the parish church vault by Monsieur J.F. Turgeon, (?Procurator, attorney) of the Seminary of Quebec. On May 03, 1831 in a solemn will done before 2 notaries, she gave half of the Joubert inheiratence to Racicot on condition that he takes care of her children from her first marriage. In 1826, notary Racicot had become co-guardian when Hilaire died (January 21).
On November 05, 1829, she sold to her brother, J.B. Juteau all the inheirited Joubert goods which included all the land. A value of 2475 pounds until the children reached their majority. On the same day and in front of the same notaries he sold with the same terms, everything bought to Racicot. This legal manoeuver allowed Racicot to inherit solely all the community goods. He didn't have to answer to anyone until the age of majority of Pierre-Honoré (born in 1820) or till the children got married. Racicot married January 28, 1833, Leocadie Trembley.
Of the 4 sons of Didier the first 3 eldest married became apprentices and the youngest, Pierre-Honoré fled! With a spirit of adventure he worked on one of the boats which passed frequently in the Sault. Unfortunately, he drowned accidentally (after a few years) in March of 1839.
He was the 11th child of the Joubert family. He was born October 20 or 21, 1777 at Chambly. He was the second child baptized with the Christian name of Joseph. The first one died very young. Like his brothers, Didier and Hilaire, he was a miller. At first he worked as a miller around Chambly, working for Messieurs du Seminaire at the mill in Achigan from 1815 to 1833. In the first year, he was the miller of both mills. On October 04, 1813, he was married to Angele (Angeline) Fortin in Rigaud. She was the daughter of Francois-Xavier and Rosalie Lemieux. They lived at L'Assomption and this is where his children were baptized: 4 boys and 4 girls. After 1833, he was living at Papineauville, the manor of Petit-Nation. Since he (author) didn't know any direct heirs of Joseph Joubert, my information is scant. Once of his sons, Ubalde lived at Ripon, and Zephirin Joubert, son of Leon, used to occasionally visit him there.
A daughter married Dr. Favier lived at Sault-au-Recollet near the crossroad of Saint-Vincent de Paul till 1945/50. It's due to help by the present priest of Ripon, Father hector Bonin, that I was able to get this information. No doubt Joseph was a pioneer at Ripon and to this day his descendents live there. He died when he was old in the North of the province of Quebec, maybe at Maniwaki or Mattawa.
1. Joseph-Octave: born and baptied in Assomption, May 11, 1819. Godfather was Joseph Piquet and the Godmother was Marie Lablond. He married Marie-Louise Beaudry on September 12, 1835 at Ripon. Buried February 7, 1902, Ripon. Died at Ripon.

2. Charles-Edouard: Born and baptized at Assomption, May 1, 1821. Buried January 8, 1824.

3. Josephine: Born and baptized April 25, 1823 at Assomption. Godfather was J.B. Pelletier. Godmother was Marie-Anne Dupuy.

4. Marie-Angeline: Born and baptized June 20, 1825, at Assomption. Godfather was Seraphin Leblanc and the Godmother was Angelique Durand.


6. Didier-Aristide: Born and baptized September 16, 1830 at Assomption. Godfather was Joseph pudhomme and the Godmother was Charlotte Cadotte.

7. Sophie: Born and baptized March 22, 1835 at Assomption. Godfather was J.-Bte Asselin and the Godmother was Sophie Racet.

NOTE: Documents sent to Elizabeth by Daniel Joubert of Ottawa indicate that Joseph and Angelique Fortin did indeed have 8 children. The ones missing in these documents were child #1: M. Celadine born August 1, 1816. Godparents were Jean Edouard Leblanc and M. Des Anges Proult. Also, child #6 is missing (listed on sheet as child #5). This is our direct ancestor Modeste Trefflee Joubert. He was born October 17, 1827. His Godparents were Modeste Poisson and Sophie Mercier.

So the children, in order of birth, would be:

1. M. Celadine 2. Joseph-Octave 3. Charles-Edouard 4.Josephine

5. Marie-Angeline 6.Modeste Trefflee 7. Didier-Aristide 8. Sophie
The source for this information was taken from the Parish of L'Assomption {St-Pierre du Portage} County of L'Assomption. 1800-1850.
The family leaves l'Assomption in May (?) For Ripon. There's no burial or marriages in the area till 1893. (Note of the parish priest Hector Bonin in 1958)
HILAIRE: (1788 ? - 1826)
Last child/son born of the Joubert family. Born after March 1788 (after his father's death). He is not buried in Chambly. He was a miller and master mill carpenter. He was at a mill at Belle-Riviere in 1810 then replaced in 1811. He married Sophie Fraser on July 19, 1814 at Notre-Dame de Montreal. She was the daughter of Aleandre (forger) and Catherine Plessis. In 1820, he's at the seminary mill at Sault-au-Recollet, replacing Didier, who is very ill. He was buried January 21, 1826 at the cemetery of the church La Visitation in Sault-au-Recollet. Of this union, 2 children are born, both of which plus their families lived at Saint-Benoit. Pierre was born in 1814 and buried August 1, 1815, without a name for the parents.
On checking the guardianship, I found a request by Sophie Fraser, widow of Hilaire, to sell land at Belle Riviere and Pierre is mentioned, he died in 1815. It's the only certain proof of his death. A daughter, Adelphine is mentioned. She married Elie Granger on October 19, 1837 at Sainte-Scholastique. He was the son of Felix and Marie-Rose Gariepy of sainte-Anne des Plaines. She became a widow while still a minor. Her cousin, Leon Joubert, of Saint-Vincent de Paul, was named guardian and in front of the notary Cesaire Germain, on August 3 1842, he dicharged a sale? To Felix Granger, heir to his son. This is the end of the children of Pierre-Honore Joubert and G. Lafoie from the 1st generation.
AUZET 1730 - CHAMBLY 1788
The aim of this work is to dispell a misunderstanding which prevails at the heart of the Joubert family for a long time, uneasieness maintained by the compilations of previous genealogies laid out by others. It's also to complete a "gap, break or blank", because all the dates and items mentions are "unpublished, new". None of these dates are inscribed in Tanguay. Looking over the 6th volume of Tanguay we find the first Joubert in Canada, Jean Joubert, resident of Charlesbourg, near Quebec, whose son Pierre married at Notre-Dame de Montreal, November 17, 1727 to Agathe Jarry and becomes the first colonist of Saint-Denis at Richelieu about 1740. Deeds and donations related to him are published in the excellent volume of l'Abbe J.-B. Allaire "Le Paroisse de St.-Denis-sur-Richelieu.
Leaving this connection, we talk of Pierre-Honore Joubert, gunner of Chambly, without any link between the two families. Perhaps they were cousins? "That's to see" states Robelais. That's exactly the point that I will attempt to clear up.
The judicial archives of Montreal possess the original marriage contract between Pierre-Honore Joubert and Genevieve Lafoie dit Laframboise. It's a private document, entirely drawn up by the hand of Fr. Antoine deperet, recollet, dated December 23, 1758 at Fort Carillon. The author came across a french missionary from Cameroun, in which the war of 1940 had forced him to take refuge here, to regain his health from 10 years of missionary work. Passing thru France in 1946 Fr. Andre albert, p.s.c. became vicar of Plassay, in Charente-Maritime. Thankfully for his episcopal searches in the archives in the 'Department Basses-Alpes', the author was able to obtain all the verifications and all the required baptism and was able to confirm that the 2 branches of the Joubert family have NO relationship. The reason is peremptory and without appeal because the person who is the subject of this study wasn't a Joubert but a Jaubert.
It is certain that the name is very old in Europe. It also varies within the different provinces. The "bert" in Joubert is of German origin and it means "brilliant". The origin of Joubert or Jobert is "GAUZ-BERT".
It seems that during the religious Wars the family became divided. The Huguenot side emigrated to Holland then to England, South Africa and Australia. We remember the Joubert general wo with paul Kreuger, "won against" the English expendionary force during the Boer War of 1901. When the war ended, General Joubert refused all "understanding, agreement" with the occupant while General Kreuger was named the prime Minister of the new British colony.
The family who remained Catholic also split in France. One side made their home in Provence (our interest here) and the other in Poitou. The Poitou branch came to Canada with Jean Joubert who Married at Charlesbourg, Quebec on November 4, 1669 to Madeleine Testu. Their son, Pierre came to Montreal and after married Agathe Jarry. They lived in Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu. He was the first "bedeau" (beadle, verger which is a church official who keeps order during services or serves as an usher or a sacristan). The branch from Provence came much later to Canada.
The names Aubert, Flaubert, Gobert, Guilbert, Humbert, Lambert and Thibert are of the same family if you believe Paul Lebel in his book "Les Noms de Personnes" published by the University Press of paris in 1948. In a letter dated September 30, 1956, M. Raymond collier, chief archivist of Digne wrote: Noted that without possible hesitation, in the parish registers the family name is spelled JAUBERT and not JOUBERT. While the Jaubert name is numerous in the Basse-Alpes, the Joubert name is quite a bit less known, maybe even unknown.
NOTE: the furthest he could go in France was 1694.
Joseph Jaubert was baptized in France in 1694. He was the legitimate son of Louis Jaubert and Madeleine Aubert. Joseph married on November 26, 1721 at Seyne les Alpes to Madeleine Pascal, the daughter of Jean and Anne Alphand from the parish Saint-Pons, situated a few km. North-East of Seyne in Provence.
It's on a single 11 by 14 sheet, written on one side. The penmanship is quite good with few erasures. Two notes noted in the margin. Numerous signatures and on cross. The document was deposited at the record office in Montreal following the destruction of the forts at Carrillon and Saint-Frederic by the almoner of both forts, Father Antoine deperet, recollet.
Appearing before us, priest, almoner acting as missionary for the inhabitants of both forts Carillon and Saint-Frederic:
Pierre Honore Joubert dit Sansregret, gunner-bombardier, son of Joseph Jouber (sic) and Magdeleine Pascal, native of D'Auzet, of Seine (sic) ev of Digne of one part and Genevieve Lafoy, daughter of Jean Baptiste Lafoy and Charlotte Durbois, inhabitants of fort Saint-Frederic, residents of Carillon of another part; for the purpose of a marriage contract in front of these witnesses: M. de Louvicourt, officer of gunners/bombardiers, ? Best man for the groom and M. Dessermet, ? Ordinary writer/author of the Navy, acting as [Commissioner, manager, steward, trustee, purser} at Carillon and perrin; Villar, sargeant of the navy troops; Trigal, soldier of the regiment REINE, company of the Count and Dumond dit Laviolette, corporal of above comany, parents and friends. Charlotte Durbois, wife of J.B. Lafoy, speaking for the bride, in the absence of her husband who was an English prisoner. Bride was 16 years old.
Dated: December 23, 1758 at Carillon. Upon checking with a magnifying loop the groom's handwriting, it's absolutely certain he signed Joubert. It's impossible to take the second letter for an A. The military presence at the marriage contract leads us to believe that P. H. Joubert came to New France about 1755 with the REINE regiment. His superior, M. de louvicourt arrived in 1757, according to P.G. Roy. One fact is certain: P.H. Jaubert who signed the marriage contract in Carillon as Joubert dit Sansregret "native d'Auzet in Provence, could not have any family link with the Jean Joubert, native of Lucon in Poitou."
Curious that these 2 families Jaubert-Joubert have lived side by side at Chambly and surrounding areas, for a century, without mixing, without any marriages. In the parish registers of Saint-Joseph at Chambly, only the mention of Sansregret helps to make the distinction between the 2 families. In the 1765 census, 2 Pierre Joubert's appear without their christian names, only identified by their marriage dates. The Joubert family from Poitou, resided at Pointe-Olivier, in front of Chambly, today called Saint-Mathias de Rouville on the Richelieu, where fort Chambly is situated.
Joseph Jaubert and Madeleine Aubert had 9 children. Their names with their baptisms in chronological order are as follows:
1. Jean-Louys born at Auzet 29 October 1722
2. Marie-Anne born at Auzet 14 March 1726
3. Marguerite born at Auzet 02 February 1728
4. PIERRE-HONORE born at Auzet 30 January 1730
5. Jean-Andre born at Auzet 15 April 1732
6. Joseph born at Auzet 13 March 1734
7. Alexis born at Digne 27 May 1741
8. Victoire born at Digne 07 June 1749
9. Alexandre born at Digne 02 June 1749
* These last 2 children, Victoire and Alexandre are obviously twins; or Victoire was born in 1748.
Digne is a very old city. It existed during the Roman times. Auzet is a small highland parish, 17 miles from Digne. The author ? Had received a copy of the Jaubert homestead occupied to this day by a direct descendent named M. Paul Andre Jaubert.
Here's our man, married during the Advent season, a time where marriages were forbidden in the church and the night before Christmas Eve stationed at the 'front'. The celebrated war of Carillon was in force for 5 months at this time. Despite the winter and the fortifications remaining intact, an attack wasn't impossible due to the proximity of the enemy. If we believe P. G. Roy, J. B. Lafoy dit Laframboise was also a French soldure who came not that long ago to Canada. He belonged to a Canadian company led by a Canadian named Laperiere. His marriage was celebrated at fort St-Frederic, on June 15, 1742 to Charlotte Durbois-Lienard, daughter of Francois and madeleine Bonhomme of the Ste-Foy parish near Quebec. Many children were baptized at the fort. M. Pierre-Geo. Roy mentions numerous Lafoy children, but missing is Genevieve. Among the baptisms of Indians we see Genevieve Lafoy ditte Laframboise as the godmother of Genevieve, daughter of an unknown father and Marie, an abenaquise. In 1760, P.H. Joubert had a son called Louis-Honore, baptized December 20, 1759 at Champlain. About 1744, P. H. Joubert was2 named first captain at fort Chambly. He was buried march 27, 1788. Unable to find when or where Genevieve Lafoy died.
Genevieve lafoy, widow Joubert, was godmother of her grandson Hilaire of Sault-au-Recollet in 1808. She also helped with the marriage of her favourite, "Hilaire" at his marriage on July 19, 1814 at Notre-Dame de Montreal. It seems she lived with him at St-Benoit, then she just drops out of sight. Unable to find her death certificate.
Drop Jean Joubert and his descendents and the head of the family would be Pierre-Honore Joubert dit Sansregret (1730-1788), husband of Genevieve Lafoy dit Laframboise.

Hi Elizabeth,

I`ve read and reread the material you sent to me. It`s great!! Tell me, who
was L. O. Joubert and when did he prepare the paper? There are a few
discrepancies with my information, but they really dont have an effect on
the overall lineage - just a question of just which sibling is our ancestor.
I also cannot find a Charlotte Bonhomme in the family that contains
Marie-Madeleine and Marie-Agnes - they sure do "play around" with names in
that family depending on which source you are looking at. I no longer have
the Beauregard book on the records of the French Forts but I do have the P.
G. Roy book on records of Fort St Frederic.

What ever happened to Jean-Baptiste La Foye-Laframboise? he was a prisoner of the English when Pierre-Honore was married to his daughter? Did you notice that Jean-Baptse.s brother-in-law, Francois Varlet, died of wounds caused by the English on 3rd of June 1759?

Some of my English ancestors and cousins were involved in the American
Colonial Militia during all the many confrontations during the French and
Indian Wars and I have quite a documented story about 4 Rice children
(cousins) that were captured in 1704 from Westboro, Mass by the Canaughwaga
Mohawks from Kanawake. Two of them, Silas and Timouthy became Clan chiefs
and sachems while another, Adonijah, was ransomed by a French family and
eventually married; first a French girl and later a Dutch girl and had a farm
across the St Lawrence from Kanawake. His adopted French name is lost in

I am a member of the American-Canadian Genealogical Society of Manchester,
NH. and with your permission, I would like to show some of them your

Some of my French-Canadian ancestors were in Vermont in the 1830`s and 40`s
which leads me to believe they may have been involved in the Papineau
rebellion and had to leave Quebec in a hurry but I know next to nothing
about how to find that information.

I`ve rambled enough. Thanks again for sending me all that great material

As far as I can figure out, L.O. Joubert would be Leonel Olivan
(Lionel-Olivant) Joubert who would be the son of Jean-Zepherin Joubert, who
was a son of Leon Joubert, who was a son of Didier Joubert, who was the son
of Pierre-Honore and therefore a brother to your ancestor Angelique and my
ancestor Joseph.

You're right about Angelique's marriage date being September 12, 1786. (NO - 1796 appears to be correct after all-GJR) My apologies for the mistake. What do you have for her birthdate? I have August 13, 1775.

The baptismal date for Pierre-Honore is June 30, 1730 and I believe his
birthdate was January 30 of the same year. He died on March 27, 1788 in
Chambly, Quebec and is buried in Chambly. His wife, Genevieve was baptised
in 1743. All of their children (15) were baptised in Chambly. I can give
you their names, birthdates, marriage dates, etc. if you'd like.

The paper that has all this information on was originally sent to me by
Pierre Rene Joubert of Long Sault who says his grandfather, Stanislas
Donatien (Pierre-Honore, Didier, Didier-Zepherin, Stanislas Donatien)
commissioned someone to produce this document about 60 years ago. He states that his favourite Aunt, continued the quest until she died. He also said
that back in the 1970s when he and his wife were returning from the Middle
East, paid a visit to Auzet, found the Joubert home (which is still occupied
by Jouberts). I am hoping to visit him sometime this summer, depending on
how long it takes me to recouperate from surgery that I am having on April
17. Hopefully, I will recover very quickly.

I would be pleased if you could show my information to your genealogy group.
Keep in mind though, that none of the information has been verified and that
most of it has either come from the internet or from second and third hand
information. As for where to find the information, I'm sure the Quebec
Archives in Hull, Quebec would have something. Not sure if they would have
any information on the internet and if they did whether it would be in
English or not.

I do know that there is a French-Indian War webpage but I'm not sure of the
address. I'm sure though that I have it bookmarked in my files and I could
look and then send you the address. It has a lot of great information.

Well, I should go for now. If you would like more information, just let me
know and I will pass it on to you. Oh, ya, if you'd like to know how I
descend from all of this, here it is:

Louis Jaubert, Joseph Jaubert, Pierre-Honore Joubert, Joseph, Modeste
Trefflee, Hilaire Didier, Edward Lawrence, Norbert Wilfred, Elizabeth

Take care for now.
