… Of Mounties and Caughnawaga – A British descendant of the Quebec Favreaus looks for answers (1) | Links Restored

UK reader Linda Groombridge is helping her husband research his Laprairie, Quebec Favreau roots and a family story which states that his

… Irish Grandmother was married to a Mounty of that name living in Caughnawaga.(1920′s) I believe they had 2 sons. I believe one died and she left her husband, took the surviving child Thomas and returned to live in Scotland. a few years later the Mounty died (I think Joseph was his name) and she remarried. Ring any bells with anyone?”

We have already found some pieces of evidence that corroborate this story – which will be shared in a second post

second post – but for today we are publishing an outline of their Favreau family tree  because Linda and her husband would love to correspond with other Favreaus who are even distantly related to her husband – or with residents of Kahnawake who may know something about the Favreaus’ involvement in Caughnawaga.

Their direct line Favreau line is  in italic and highlighted in green. You can find the most recent connection by scrolling down directly  to the FIFTH GENERATION  – no. 30 Adelard Favreau and Margaret Rainey.

Favreaus with a connection to Kahnawake through temporary residence or by marriage – are  in italic and highlighted in blue. They are in the 4th, 5th and 6th generations.
