I just came across this posting which is quite old but thought I might have some information for you. My grandfather was Edward Bourbeau, author of Three Centuries of Bourbeaus in North America. He was born in Turner Falls.He was the son of Louis-Ludger and grandson of Cleophas Bourbeau. In his book he speaks alot of Turner Falls and all the Bourbeaus that were in the area; quite a few, since Louis Ludger was one of 11 children. the book goes back to Elie Bourbeau (1644) in France.
