Re: La Bolles in Idaho
I hope you will email me.I was in touch with some other LaBolle's in Idaho (but I don't remember the site) and learned that the LaBolle's in Idaho are also descended from Francois and Augustine.I already knew that Augustine was not buried in DeKalb, County, IL although his tombstone is there.A grandaughter told me that Augustine left one day and never came back according to her grandmother.
Then I learned that Francois also went to Idaho.Apparently these two immigrant ancestors had two families.The first in Illinois then they left them and went on to Idaho.This means a fairly close relationship (my husband was a g.grandson to Francois).So my children may have 3rd cousins in Idaho.
Francois had a son who later married Nellie Cook.One of the children was Clifford Vernon LaBolle who later moved to Chicago.My husband Phillip Arnold LaBolle was born in 1944 and his brother Clifford Allen was born in 1945.Clifford Allen (Cliff died recently in California).Cliff has four sons and Phil left 1 daughter, two sons and many loving stepchildren who he raised.
There is a monument with Francois' name on it in Pine Hill cemetary in Loda, Illinois.
So many secrets of the 1800's are becoming known because of the Internet.Please be in touch.I hope this will not be a shock to anyone.
