This information is from "The Family Tree of Gregory Danielson" at Rootsweb under "Francois Fuselier"; I have found it to be the most complete and accurate.Also, see "A Family Montage" by Dr. Thomas Frere Kramer, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Center for Louisiana Studies.
"Francois Fuselier, a merchant of Vignory, and Sebastienne Royet were married on September 5, 1644 in Vignory-en-Bassigny, a small village situated a few kilometers north of Chaumont in the Department of Haute-Marne in France.The origin of Vignory goes back to the 10th century when Raoul Barbeta founded the line of lords of Vignory ofGuy I who established St. Etienne, the first church there, in 1030.
Concerning the parents of Francois Fuselier, husband of Sebastienne Royet, it is difficult to determine who they were.Between the years 1600 and 1628, at least four Francois Fuseliers were born.No other indication was found in the religious registers that could be of help in distinguishing the four from each other.They were:
Francois Fuselier, b. 8Jan1608, son of Jean Fuselier and Bernard Notin.
Francois Fuselier, bap. 22May1621, son of Henry Fuselier and Nicolle Richou.
Francois Fuselier, bap. 30May1621, son of Henry Fuselier and Francoise.
Francois Fuselier, bap. 10Apr1628, son of Francois Fuselier and Louise Prieur.
We are led to believe that the whole Fuselier-Royet family probably immigrated either to Lyon, France or elswhere because there is no trace of them after 1660.At least one son, Antoine, who married Genevieve Compagnon, would have settled in Lyon, France.Among the other Fuselier families that remained in the area of Vignory, we find the following names that intermarried with them:Bourgin, Oudin, Lemoine, Norot, Hugot, Mongeot, Laurent, Bertrand, Guichard, Frampas, Giraud, LeJeune, etc."
Thomas Frere Kramer's book contains several of the original marriage certificates of the Fuselier famliy in Lyon; the oldest is the marriage of Pierre Antoine Fuselier to Genevieve Compagnon 7Sep1681.Other thanPierre Antoine's signature, Genevieve's signature and signatures of several Compagnons, the other signatures are hard to decipher.
Robert Bruce L. Ardoin has located the family in Vignory en Bassigny, Haute Marne, Champagne Department.See "Genealogical notes on the famililes of Fuselier and Dubuisson".
I had hoped to make an educated guess by tracing back the names given the children, as children were usually named in honor of parents or grandparents, so that following the given names of children, one could backtrack the parents or grandparents, but I was stopped by lack of information.
This is not much help, but because I cannot travel to France for further research, I am stumped.
