Re MI Obit: Joseph LEDUC, brother to Julia (Lucy) VIAU/VEIO nee LEDUC/LADUKE. Julia Veio nee LEDUC is my great grandmother. If anyone reading this message is related to this LEDUC line, please contact me. I'd love to meet some new cousins and share information. Carol firstname.lastname@example.org
Siblings: Joseph and Julia (aka Lucy) LEDUC/LADUKE Parents: Joseph LEDUC and Marie Amaranthe Anne PROVOST, married 1825, Vaudreuil, QC.
Julia's brother, Joseph, died OCT 1920, MI. Julia died OCT 1921, OH. Joseph went directly to Cheboygan, MI from Canada and Julia went to Potsdam, New York from Canada. Then something made her move to Cheboygan, MI circa 187? -1880. I'm still looking for her husband, Andre~w VIAU/VEIO's death record in NY, MI, CAN and some where in between.
Julia's brother, Joseph LEDUC, (per obit) was married twice and both times to nee LEDUC women. See below.
