I have been working on this part time for about 5 years now. I'm missing a lot of dates, so if you know any, PLEASE send them to me and I can update the site. Also, I've been looking for the definite parents of my Grandfather, Henry Alphonse Bastien. If you know who he is, let me know as I have been told his name was Alphonse, Alphonse Peppiette (not sure of the spelling), or this may be a red herring. Henry's father may have been Joseph from Paris, France, but I have been told Joseph is my GGGrandfather, which, if true, means there is a person between Henry and Joseph, thereby making Alphonse a definite possibility. I am stuck at this point.
Henry (Harry) Alphonse Bastien was born in Toronto, Ontario...married Ella Maude Taylor in August of 1922. Henry's father was Amie (Amiel) Bastien who was married to Lovina Auger...both born in canada. My Bastien line goes back to Jacques Roquant who arrived in Canada with Cadillac's Army and went to establish the city of Detroit, then back to Montreal where he settled and began the family lineage in Canada.
I won't recant the whole line here but if you have any more info, I would appreciate receiving it.
