Re: Pierre Delashmutt/DeLaChaumette
I am looking for the parents of Marie Delashmette (who I am told were Pierre De La Chaumette and Anne Palasy.Marie married Hans(Jans)Waggoner or Wagner.I am trying to unravel this family from two sides, as I find another branch connected to my two other French Hugeunot families, Estill and Caperton who intermarried with a descendant of Jean De La Chaumette named Margaret "Shumate".Margaret is in my father's line, though not direct. The Estills Capertons and De La Chaumettes all lived very near each other in Greenbrier Co. Va.
Marie Delashmette is in my mother's direct line. I'm not sure if all the De La Chaumette brothers (particularly her ancestor) lived in Greenbrier Co., Va.but I would like totrack all three original De La Chaumette brothers and their families for at least 3 or 4 generations.
I especially want to find the origin of the South Carolina Delashmettes and various similar sounding names.
Does anyone know of any genealogical record on these families?
