Shirley, Glad you replied. I found you in another forum from last year and have been trying to e mail you but it keeps getting sent back. There were 2 other people in that forum that were also related. I can't contact them either. I wonder if Archie was his original name. It doesn't sound very french. The children I have for Andre and Balsomone are: Pierre b.1866. Marguerite b.1869, Caroline b.1871, Louie b.1874, Noel b. 1876, Marie b. 1878 and Athanasi b. 1880. Somehow I thought you were descended from Noel.
