Still on the trail of my mysterious great-grandparents.I have another posting under this forum for Joseph Rivet/Riviere m. Lydia Rexford.
My grandfather was Frank Christophe Richards. I now believe his parents were Gabriel Richer dit Lafleche and Eleanora/Leonora Rivet/Riviere.I just received new info on Eleanora.
So far, I think I have found Gabriel's parents and grandparents.His parents were Louis Richer dit Lafleche and Marie-Genevieve Bousquet-Larose.Her parents in one place are listed as Pierre Bousquet-Larose or dit Larose and Josephte Rivet.I cannot confirm this as I do not speak or read French and a lot of the records have not been translated.
I know some of these names are quite common, but it seems coincidental that Frank Richards maternal grandfather was also spelled Rivet/Riviere.
