Re: Betters of N H and MA late 1860-1940
I have had some luck on tracing my Betters/Lemieux. I was able to link my gggrandfather, Oliver Betters, to Xavier Lemieux in Coppersville, NY. The family changed his name to Oliver Betters when they came to MA. He married an Adelaide Landry in Coopersville around 1850 and had a least six children in the Coopersville area. Since there were very few Lemeiux's in this area at this time I think I will be able to get the family back to Canada and should have no trouble from there.
