Reader Query: Duquettes in Caughnawaga | Part 2/3

This is a follow-up to an earlier post in which Donna Lee Duquette was asking whether I could shed light on any possible connections between her Duquette ancestors and Caughnawaga.

My basic findings are that one line of Duquettes settled in the region of Chateauguay, and some of these were among the French Canadians who were allowed at one time to live in Caughnawaga. Most of these were farmers who were permitted to lease land (which is no longer the case).

Here are a few connections I’ve found after a cursory examination of several online sources and I would ask that any readers with connections (or further information) about these Duquettes  consider leaving information or contact details in the comment boxes below. Merci!
