Updates: Maple Cora is not Belle Star; she may have protrayed her while working for Bartum and Bailey's Circus (Barbaboo, WI. ), she died in Des Plaines, Il.; buried in Sheridan Wy. (Big Horn National park); a Lafollette moved to the area between the Big Horn and Yellowstone. I am not a direct descent of General Layafette; however, I am a descendent of his cousin George Lafollette (married Jemima Minthorn). Four Lafollette's severed under Major General Layafette; 3 under General Casmir Pulaski during the American Revolution. I am a descendant of the DeWeerth/Deworth family (battle of Hastings); one of their ancestors travled the tributaries of the Mississippi with Marquette and Joliet in the 1670's. The Deweerths of Central Illinois are Cajun. Jacob Lafollette (Peoria Co.) was the grand nephew of General "Stonewall" Jackson. All the descendants of Francois Joseph Doubet, JR. are descendents of Ferdinand IV of Naples/Kingdom of the 2 Sicilies; Italian Royalty. There are many cousins of yours in Peoria, Fulton, and Knox Co. On Aug 18, there will be a family reunion; contact Peggy & Lyle Doubet at 309/362-2410 or Laura Belle Cruise @ 309-565-4422. I will not be able to attend.
