Garrean and Garreans evolved from Garreau when some French Immigrants and desendents of the GARREAU surname changed the spelling to fit english pronounciation during the late 1800`s. SO HELLO COUSINS,FROM THE GARREANS!

Hi Monte, saw your posting and was very facinated by your name. I am of the Gareau/Garreau family line from France and Quebec and then onto St Lawrence County, NY, with a dit of St Onge or Saintonge attached. I am having a hard time finding my Joseph Gareau dit Saintonges birth and parents. What can you tell me about your surname, such as where you originated from and what your family line is. Meanwhile if your curious as to mine take a look at

Hello Kristin,

I too am searching for Joseph Garrow (Garreau) who moved to Helena, Montana in, I believe, the 1880's. He was orginally from New York state, but may have been born in Canada. He was married to Hermine "Minnie" Shatraw (Chartrand). I do not know if they were married before or after he moved to Montana, but I do know that she also was from New York, probably via Canada. He died as a young man with four surviving children in Helena, Montana, I think about 1899.

If any of this information might relate to what you have I certainly will be most appreciative to hear from you. I have one photograph of him taken as a young man with his friend and brother-in-law Edward Emmanuel Shatraw.

Sincere regards,

Hi Del, I read your msg of 11/3/2010 regarding Joseph Garreau & Minnie Shatraw. I am researching my Shatraw roots and I come from Israel Shatraw line Minnie's older brother. I have found Antoine's mother & father Simon Paul Chartrand and Marie Charles or Charlotte Leblanc back to St. Benoit, Quebec through records in Ancestry. I note that you indicate you have a picture of Jos. Garreau with Edward Shatraw would you be able to scan this pix and email it to me. I have been putting picture and family stories together on the Chartrand/Shatraw family for some years now and I would like to add this pix. Any info I can provide you with please let me know my email address is
