LOUIS BELLEGARDE (1829-1906)

Post by CTing » Sat Jun 14, 2014 12:35 am

Hey Gary

I was researching the error you might have found, Eliza born around 1844 under Charles King Desmarias, was married to Louis Bellegarde, he has a 2nd wife named Elizabeth Cardinal. Under Charles and Eliza there was Louis, Pierre, Francios or Frank, George August, Avila, Alphonsine and Alexis.

I think this is guy might be the key to unlocking this family mystery. 2 of the Children's names Frank and Alphonsine sounds like a connection, but I am like why did Louis remarry? Did he ditch his family and they went from Bellegarde to back to Desmarias? That's a lot of kids to ditch and where is my GG Thomas Henry Desmarais.

Thanks again for everything!

Cassandra

Thanks very much for the donations Cassandra.

Until now I didn’t have very much about Louis BELLEGARDE. I am in the process of reviewing his family now and will let you know when I have enough to do a Page for him.

In the meantime you need to refresh my memory regarding Avila who doesn’t seem to appear as a child in anything I’ve found so far. I did find some info regarding the other children however.

Hey Gary

I found this person on Ancestry.ca so I don't know how reliable it is but I have a Birthdate for Avila Bellegarde as Dec 14 1872

It's so confusing sometimes because everyone seemed to use the same names and there are so many SR and JR's LOL

Thanks

Thanks Gary

This brings up so many questions for me.

Like I wonder what happened to Eliza, do you think she died by the Sioux? I wonder why some kids still went by the last name of Bellegarde and where did my ancestor Thomas Henry come from.

Do you think the DNA testing will help solve this?

I have completed the BELLEGARDE Page insofar as my research to date. I cannot find anything that would verify or substantiate a relationship with Eliza DESMARAIS.

I know very little about DNA testing or how it can be applied to genealogy.

Which ones of Henry Thomas’ children went by the name of BELLEGARDE?
