I have been looking for information on my great grandmother Agnes Sansfacon from Van Buren, Maine. Her parents are listed as Rosimond Sansfacon & Anastasie Violette in the records from St. Bruno. Agnes Sansfacon married Joseph Godin sometime before 1876 when my grandmother Severine was born. I have not been able to find much information, but do know that both Joseph and Agnes were born in the mid 1850's & settled in Dayton, Minnesota a short distance from Minneapoliswhere they raised their family!
Could this be a branch of the Violettes of which you speak? I know quite a bit about the history of the Godins/Goodins coming from Van Buren, Maine & homesteading in Dayton in the early 1850's. Any information would be much appreciated!
