I've recently traced my sweet grandmother's lineage back to France. She was born Clara Vernier in St. Zotique, Quebec. Apparently, Laurent Vernier also had a son named Francois Vernier who married Rose-Amable Leger in Lachine, Quebec 2May1791. I am descendant of their son Josesh Vernier, and his son Gedeon Vernier, and his son Louis Vernier, who was my sweet grandmother's father. Francois had four sons that I'm aware of; Joseph, Joachim, Olivier and Francois. My sweet grandmother had three uncles that I'm aware of; Donat, Privat and Romuald(who is my father's godfather). Her father, Louis, had two uncle's that I'm aware of; Francois and Joseph. My sweet grandmother married Raoul Bissonnette on October 6th, 1914 and together they had 18 children, 16 of which survived. My father, Andre Romuald Bissonnette moved to Michigan and married my mother in Detroit. My sweet grandmother would gather all of her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren around her every christmas until her death on October 14th, 1984. We hold her in very high esteem and miss her every day. Greetings cousins! Love, Jim.
