Hello Phil. Glad you got the info at last. Can you fill me in on Fred's birth date and place. I gave me Blackbrook as the place he got married to Flora Boyer but no date. Do you have it? Now, just out of curiousity, are Flora and Philomène Boyer related? About the Deslauriers in Indiana, I only have data for 2 or 3 generations because the index stops at 1789. One exception is François, son of J.-B. and T. Mallette, who moved to the Dakota territory and seemingly married a Lakota indian woman. Their children also married indians. You were noting to me that your family thought that Flora may have been a native. May be the native root is in Dakota territory? E-mail me if you are interested in getting more info about the Dakota line.
