I have a family history that starts with Jean Claude Doubet (mayor of Roye, France) and his marriage to Ursul Grojean. They had 8 children (Marguerite, Alexander, Gilbert, Francois, Joseph, Abel, Julia and Josephine). It begins with a passport that was in the possession of Augustin Doubet. It appears the family sailed from Havre, May 27, 1833 and arrived in Meadville, August 15, 1933. I can provide a full copy of a couple of documents if anyone is interested. My father was interested in the family history at one point but I don't know where the documents he left behind came from. His name was Dale Doubet, son of Julius Doubet from Hanna City, Illinios. The document details that Jean Claude brought his family to America for a better life for them. His son Joseph had poor eyesight and that is why he was set up on a farm. He had not learned a trade. Oddly, it appears the three daughters married three brothers. Marguerite married John B. Stouvenel, Julie married his brother Francois and Josephine married their brother Charles (two children - Virginie and Adele). Francois Doubet married Alix Jacquot of New York City. Alexander Doubet married Carline of Augusta, Georgia (two children - Alexander and Julia). Gilbert Doubet married Adele Monin (three children - Camille, Louise and Lucy) and Joseph Doubet married Elizabeth Didlot (ten children - Gilbert, Emelie, Pauline, Augustine, Josephine, Louis, Frank, Julia, Elvina and Mark)
Ursul Grosjean Doubet went to New York City for a visit with her children, took ill and died in 1845 and is buried in Calvary Cemetary. Jean Claude Doubet died in 1847 and is buried in St. Hippolyte's Cemetary in Frenchtown. Joseph Doubet bought the farm from Jean Claude's heirs and raised his children there. Louis Doubet bought the farm on Feb. 13 1896. In 1916 the road being the southern farm boundary was proclaimed a state road, route 89, between Meadville and Titusville. After having been in the Doubet family for 88 years, on August 9, 1921 the property passed to strangers. Louis Doubet married a Mary Poly and one of their children was named Leo. The document also contains several notes from the original Doubet Bible records... Again if you are interested in a copy, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a second 10 page document that has the history of Joseph Doubet Sr, farmer born near Belford, France in 1829, Peter Doubet Sr, born in Kickapoo Township, Peoria, Illinois and an E. Doubet, born in France, lived in Limestone Township. The information in this document was taken from a Doubet Family Reunion record that started in August of 1926.
