I am interested in tracing the DeRousse family tree, I really don't know too much about the known localities except my grandfather- Louis DeRousse, his brother-Ralph, and my father-Thomas. I also know there was a Peter. My father spoke of a Ginny DeRousse. We were all living in the bootheel of Missouri. My father just passed away last year in May. I have a sister who may know more.

Virginia, I wonder if my DesRousse ancestors are of the same family as yours? They lived in the New Madrid area of MO. in the early 1800's. Francois Desrousse was married to Veronique Levron dit Metayers. They had 2 daughters that I know of, Francoise (b. 1778) and Therese (b. 1780). Francoise was married to Francois Paquette and had a daughter, Felicite, who married into the DeLisle family. (New Madrid and Portageville area) After Francois Paquette died, Francoise married Jean Baptist Grimard (1804)in New Madrid. What do you think? Are we related?

Am looking for a George DeRousse married to Adeline Slayton on June 4, 1905. That is basically all the info I have. He had 3 boys, George, Charles (Eddie), and Frank. He came from Missouri area near St. Louis we think.
