K>W> -- Its a small world after all!Always happy to encounter a new "family ancestor".Thanks for info, will look into it.Strange no mention in Dennison I thought.Tanguay does have some info.Do you think St Joseph's parish collection will be found in the same microfilm as St Anne's Detroit (Exterior parishes?, I know St. Anne's Detroit and St. Antoine/St Mary's in Monroe County will be included there.R.C. archdiocese was overseen by bishop in London, Ont. in that time period, maybe St. Joseph's too. Found Francois Messier in Cadillac's Detroit list in 1701 of plot owners. Brother Michel lived in Montreal at same time, and visited his brother at Detroit settlement.My Joseph is descended from one of these two men.Also found "Mascy" in early Michigan census (1821)in Monroe County, only a few names after the Lapointe entries, indicating they were neighbors or lived in close proximity. Also found in Wisconsin Historical Collection Vol 12 "Payroll of the Northwest Company", Jean Baptiste Massie, boatman, Mackinac 1819, one year. Found Marie Louisa Lapointe's marriage details to Jean Baptiste Cloutier and their son's birth/burial at L'Assumption, Windsor.Waiting for microfilms to arrive to continue.J/B. Cloutier either died or returned to Quebec,(I found another marriage in Quebec shortly after that looks like it is him)Mary Louisa Lapointe/Cloutier goes on to marry Joseph Messier.Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, will provide further details as they become available if you are interested.
