HI, Paul: Don't know if my first post got through, but I'm your 2nd cousin; Barthelemi and Stephane's son Joseph Emil married Ora LaRochelle in 1936 and their daughter Doris is my mom. She knows your mom, Irene?

Your post was the final confirmation I needed in my own research linking the Dandurands to Louis Hebert, founding father of Quebec... so thanks! Stephane's parents were Vincent Gauvin and Desmarise (numerous spellings) Dube. Obviously, I have a lot more (at least four more generations back for each of them). If you want, I can mail you copies of our tree.

There was a huge fire in Salem around the turn of the century, and it not only made a hole in city records, but it scattered our family in several directions. I have a story from my grandfather about living in a barn with one of his brothers until word got to them where their parents and other siblings were...
