I think her name is Esita/Excilda/Josette/or Isda Bachand (t).She has been listed under all four. Maurice would have come to the united States around 1860.He shows up in the Michigan Census for Negaunee, MI in 1860.His wife is also listed there. I know that its not much to go on, but any help would be great.
I have guestimated Maurice's birth year between 1830-and 1834. The only other information is that on his death certificate he lists his father's name as Joseph, no mother is listed.
