Johnny, a while back I posted the will of John FILYAW (d 1747-48); see message #38. In it he names his wife JANE.I had supposed that name to be anglicized Jeanne, but perhaps it's Genevieve.A move from Quebec to NC seems an odd direction to take, and yet I don't know enough to rule it out. Not all the Huguenots who went to Quebec stayed there:"Some Huguenots settled in Acadia and Quebec before 1685. These early settlers were persecuted and fled to New York and New England [Huguenot Genealogical Research, by Charles M. Franklin; includes recommendation to consult Cyprien Tanguay for information on Canadian French]. A Nicolas Pierre Filoux, from the Isle of Re, died 1690 in NY.
It seems more likely to me that John FILYAW is somehow connected to the Peter FILIEUX who died in Charleston SC in 1741, but I have no proof of that. And who knows? Peter's obituary says that he arrived in Charleston abt 1686. That was a year after revocation of the Edict of Nantes, so I always assumed he had fled France; but the obituary doesn't say that. Might he have come down from New York? At this point, anything is possible and worth investigating.
