Re: Mary Vallier (Valliere)
Greeting Friends and Family:
My great grandmother was named: "Mary Valery" (NYC area at death [1920's?]...given to me from my Dad from a "wake" card).I am investigating the Anglicanization of this Valery variant towards Algonquin mixed blood.(My son and Dad have archaic Indian features.)Also "alot" (and I mean alot) of "Valerys" are found in "ACADIAN" records (Cajun) of Louisiana parishes.Are they of the Acadian (MicMac, Nova Scotia) algonquin tribe...?
Does anyone have any info re the Valery name variant.I suspect it was changed due to immigration into New England after the 1840's.
Thank you so kindly!
