I have some information I recently have dug up.My family line comes down thru my grandfather (Leopold Francoeur-Eugenie Bourassa) and they came from Illinois.Iroquois county to be exact. So If figured at one time the Bourassa's had to pass thru the area and sure enough when I put the Bourassa name into the "Illinois State Wide Marriage Index 1763-1900"some names came up:
This now raises some new questions, most genealogy sites have their marriage posted 1808 in Michigan.Was this date estimate because of the birth of Joseph N Bourass b. 1810? Was Daniel maybe married twice?I have sent for copies of the marriage certificate.Just something to think about.
