The more I read the more I get confused.I have a Leon Mainville, born 8-8-1833, married to a Denise Mailloux, born 2-4-1845. I have a list of the following children, Sarah, Napoleon, Oliver, John Baptiste, Rhoda, Fred and Joseph Alfred.this info comes from a man in Alpena who was hired to go thorough Alpena records. I do have some birth dates of the children if you are interested.
A record from St. Bernard's in Alpena shows birth of William Honor, 1-1-1883, parents John Baptiste and Catherine Jennerot.I believe this is who Bill St. Onge is talking about. If all this is in fact correct, there are either two (or More) John Baptiste or John was a parent before he was born.
Doyou go back any further than Leon?I believe our link is in the generation further back.I am trying to gather information on Abraham Mainville who was born in 1823.
I hope I haven't confused the issue more than it already is.If you have specific questions please feel free to contact me.I have alot of information with no where to put it.
