  6. A couple people here are looking for more info on Martin’s. I have a Polly Martin born 1766 and died in St. Albans, VT April 25, 1855. She was married to Richard Whittemore who was born in 1768 in Salem, MA and died in St Albans, VT on Jan. 4, 1805. Polly apparently didn’t remarry as she is buried in the Whittemore plot in St Alban’s, Calvary cemetery. I have tried in vain to find Polly’s ancestors. The closest I come is on a census in which a man by the name of Knott Martin COULD have been her father.

    If anyone knows of this Martin family please contact me…. Thank you, Lynn

  8. Anyone have any on the Saucier tree?

    • Nothing comes to mind. Did you have reason to believe you have Sauciers in Kahnawake?

      • In the past yes, I have been doing ancestry research like crazy, my fiancee’s family are native american, his grandparents and his father are all full blooded, they are Mohawk. His grandfather & great grandfather and their families lived there. My fiancee’s mother’s side I know aren’t Mohawk, they are Blackfoot (Picard’s), so I’m mainly focusing on finding the records from the reservation or finding anything that can help show proof of residency from his grandparents and great grandparents. I do have the ancestry tree practically done, and do know even your last name I have seen in there through marriage. Thank you for replying, hope this helps some..

  14. My name is Tim LaCroix. The earliest records I can find on my ancestry come from Mackinaw Island, Michigan with Francis LaCroix. His father married a woman by the name of Angelique. I cannot find anything further back from that. This was during the early 1800s. Francis LaCroix was born in the late 1700s. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
