Hi Jack, Thanks for the speedy reply. For ten years, we lived in Weiser, ID, which is just across the Snake River from Oregon and about 20 miles from Ontario, OR. Now, we are retired and back at the family ranch 55 miles north of Weiser in the mountains near the small town of Council.

To me, Jaques is very French. I have been told that the name could easily be Scottish. French is much more likely. Grandmother always said that her parents spoke in French when they did not want their children to understand them and that they were both French. Her father, Platt Newcomb, came from a branch of the Newcomb family that for one generation did live in French Canada; however, I also have found on that they, too, immigrated from England.

When the Jaquish book comes out, I will be interested in it.

Thanks, Todd Nelson
