I am looking for any information concerning the Derouin's in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in the later 1800's. I am the great grandson of Joseph Derouin who immigated to the U.s. in 1879 at 24 years old. He married Elizabeth (think the last name is Charette), who imigrated to the U.S. in 1882 at the age of 21 yrs. old.
According to the 1900 census their children are as follows: Joseph Jr.b. 1883 Edith M.b. 1886 Fredb. 1888 Willb. 1889 Roseb. 1894 Arthurb. 1903(my grandfather)
I am trying to connect the family back to Canada. I believe that my great-grand father could have been the brother of Felix Derouin b.July 11, 1855 d.Decemeber 26,1939 from Canada who would then lead me back to Canada.I have no info that tells if Joseph and Felix were brothers though. I If anyone has a link that could help me, I wouls Love it!!!
