Re: Descendants De Sales Laterrière 1766-2002 Albi-Quebec
Bon Jour from upstate New York!
Am a descendant of the Latteer, (Latier, Lateer) Family and am wondering about the similiarity of your name to that of my paternal grandmother's surname ("Latteer" appears on the family tombstone).
My Latteer heritage has been traced in America to around 1701. I live in the Tri-State area once known as "The Frontier" so the Lateer roots began here in my vicinity in the Delaware/Hudson/Minisink Valley area many, many generations ago.
Was told by a great aunt and another Lateer descendant the family was from France and when they left, some came to America and othes settled in Ireland.
Hopefully, you'll have some connection and myhave some answers to our mystery???
Warmest good wishes,
Sherrill Elston Holley
P.S. Regretfully, don't speak French.
