Bonjour - Hello.I have done further research on my Lamothe Family roots since my last posts in 2005.I have been able to retrace my Lamothe Family roots back to Jean-Baptiste Lamothe who was born on July 10th 1837 in St. Pierre de Sorel in Quebec, Canada.He married Theoiste Lavallee who was born on December 21st 1830 in Ste Pierre de Sorel, Quebec.
They had four male children, Nazaire born on March 2nd 1860 at Ste Victoire, Richelieu, Quebec, Denis born on December 31st 1862 at Ste Victoire, Richelieu, Jean-Baptiste born on October 24th 1865 in St. Robert, Richelieu and Pierre Ovide born on July 26th 1868 in St. Robert, Richelieu.
Nazaire was married to Marcelline Chartrand (her second marriage) on April 17th 1882 in St. Felix de Valois, Cheneville, Quebec.They had a son named Auguste Lamothe (my great grandfather who I met on several occasions) who lived from 1887 to 1978. I don't know if August had any siblings and I never did find out the name of his wife, my great grandmother.
Auguste had a son named Leo, my grandfather who married Lilliane Dequane and lived in the Chelmsford/Sudbury Ontario area.I am not sure if Leo had any siblings.Leo and Lilliane had eight children; Ronald, Lionel (my father), Juliette, Romeo, Claude, Raymond, Claudette and Normand who were all raised in the Chelmsford/Sudbury Ontario area.
I would like to hear from anyone who is related to me and or has information regarding my Lamothe Clan history prior to the birth of Jean-Baptiste Lamothe on July 10th 1837.Merci - Thank you.
