Dear Carolyn, Jolys aren't my family. I have seen in this web site: http://www.rootsweb.com/~qcrichel/90000582.HTMhttp://www.rootsweb.com/~qcrichel/90000582.HTM that the first one was from Belgium? Nevertheless, I will take a glance to BMS of Ste-Geneviève-de-Berthier in order to find Marie-Catherine's baptism. Do you mean that you are descendant of Jean (Johannes)Christian Meyer?He was a "Hessian".Had a large family, but no male descendant. Marie-Catherine was his second wife.
