My research at this point begins with Claud Bedaine and wife, Jane who were both born in France abt. 1790.This couple and their first 3 children of record arrived in USA abt. 1834.Their children were: John B. (1821-1882), Morris or Maurice (1827-?) John C. (1831-1904) Mary (ca 1836-1862) and Malinda (ca 1839-?) Mary and Malinda were both born in Ohio, the previous 3 in France.I have records of this family in Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan.I amcurrently working on proving parentage of Claud and am willing to exchange information.
