I too am trying to trace the Billotte side of my family.My great grandfather, Laurent Billotte, came to America sometime between 1820-1850. He either lived or worked around Malvillers, France and I have found him and his wife, Catherine Lamootte in church records from Courchaton, France. I know he was born 1 November, 1804. I would like to know where he was born and who his parents, etc.were.If I can help you in any way, I'd be glad to.I have always wondered about the Italian branch of the family. Also, you mentioned an Anna that lived in Pennsylvania; all of my Billotte relatives lived and are still living in Pennsylvania. Maybe there is a connection.
