Re: Horace Latraverse, 1897, Woonsocket, RI
Thanks for sharing your info with me. Your great-grandmother Julie Latraverse was in my database. As things turn out... your great-grandmother and my great-grandfather were brother and sister. Julie came from a huge family... 16 children. The baby of that family was my great-grandfather Narcisse Latraverse. He was born Abt. 1868. Your great-grandmother Julie was born on 1 Jul 1849.
My records have both Julie & Narcisse as children of Pierre-Joseph HUS-LATRAVERSE and Marguerite-Catherine DELARD/DELLARD.
Marguerite-Catherine DELARD/DELLARD was born 24 Jan 1824.
Pierre & Marguerite were married 16 Feb 1841... as you said. They were married in St-Pierre de Sorel. I'm not sure if that refers to just the church where they were married or to a village within Sorel. I know that there used to be villages of St-Anne de Sorel and St-Joseph de Sorel within the city.
So Pierre & Marguerite are our 2nd great-grandparents.
Pierre is the son of Joseph HUS-LATRAVERSE, our 3rd great-grandfather. He was born 6 Jan 1787 and married 6 Feb 1815 in St-Pierre de Sorel to Catherine-Francoise MASSE.
Joseph was the son of Pierre HUS-LATRAVERSE, our 4th great-grandfather. He married Marie-Exupere COUTURIER-LABONTE on the 23 Jul 1775 in St-Francois du Lac, Quebec, Canada.
Pierre was the son of Pierre HUS-LATRAVERSE, our 5th great-grandfather. Pierre married Marie-Anne DESORCY-LINCOURT on the 30 Jun 1751 in Ile Dupas, Quebec, Canada.
Pierre was the son of Jean-Baptiste-Antoine HUS-LATRAVERSE, our 6th great-grandfather. J-Bte-Antoine was born 18 Mar 1671 in St-Pierre de Sorel, Quebec, Canada. He married Marie-Therese NIQUET on 15 Oct 1714 in St-Francois du Lac. Marie-Therese was born 25 Sep 1690.
Jean-Baptiste-Antoine HUS-LATRAVERSE (the 1st Latraverse) was the son of Paul HUS-LEMOINE. Paul was born 16 Feb 1644 in Montigny, Rouen, Normandie, France. Paul died the 20 Mar 1734 in Sorel, Richelieu, Quebec, Canada. He married Jeanne BAILLARGEON on the 16 Jun 1669. The marriage was notarized by Count Cusson at Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Champlain, Quebec, Canada.
The HUS-PAUL, HUS-LATRAVERSE, HUS-MILLET & HUS-COURNOYER names all derived from Paul Hus to the best of my knowledge. What I don't know is why so many of his children took on different names (dit names). According to my records he had 15 children... and aside from OUR Jean-Baptiste-Antoine he had another younger son named Jean-Baptiste born the 25 Mar 1675.
Your great-grandfather Louis William Paul most likely descends from one of Paul Hus's children. I would guess either the eldest son Pierre-Louis HUS-PAUL or the youngest son Etienne HUS-PAUL.
I also don't know much about the HUS-LEMOINE relation in France. I know that Paul HUS-LEMOINE was the son of Leonard HUS-LEMOINE & Marguerite LENFANT. I believe they also lived in Montigny, Rouen, Normandie, France. Beyond that the HUS family is a mystery to me.
I believe the name "HUS" is German rather than French... so it's possible that the family migrated from Germany to Northern France.
If the name was originally "LEMOINE" then the origins could very well be French.
Any information regarding the family of Paul Hus or his ancestors would be greatly appreciated -- but I don't think there is much info available.
Considering that my mother was a LATRAVERSE descended from Jean-Baptiste-Antoine HUS-LATRAVERSE ... it would be nice to know more about the origins of this family in either France or Germany.
Just thought i'd share with you some info that I have ... hopefully it helps you out.
Good to hear from you cousin :)
