Bishop Lemay
I lived next door to his mother, Clara until her death in Lawrence, Ma. I had the privilege of meeting her son Bishop Lemay after her passing. She was a VERY religious person, a real kind lady.

Just wanted to know where you got the date of death for her. I did not find any record of her death in PRDH and Fichier Origine just has "before 12 April 1677" which was the day her husband remarried. F.O. also says she died in Trois Rivieres.

Michel LeMay (1630 or 1631)
I want to thank you for the enlightening bio on Find A Grave. He is my 8th ggfather. I am also happy to have also found his gravestone photo there.

My family line comes through Michel (b. 1630 of 31>Michel>Joseph>Marie who m. LaViolet> Marie LaViolet m. Toussaint Charboneau> John Louis Charboneau>Lizzie Charboneau m. Duclos (DeClue). So I do not carry the LeMay name and wondered where the LeMay name ended up. I see from the memorials you maintain that there are lot on the east coast.

Marie LeMay's (who m. LaViolet) daughter Marie came to a French community in the Old Mines area of Washington County Missouri and married into the Charbonneau's who married into Duclos (DeClue) family which is one of about 18 names on the first land grant document in Missouri from the Spanish government when the area was under Spanish control before the Louisiana Purchase--before the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804. Old Mines, Missouri area was French speaking and even up to the 1970s there were some old folks who never learned English and remained a French enclave. My dad's grandma who raised him went to English school but they spoke French at home--her own mother knew no English though born in Missouri.

I thought you might find it interesting to know how the French culture the LeMay's are from was kept alive in Missouri for a very long time and is a little known fact in French Canada to this day.

One question: D you know if the drawing on Michel LeMay's Find A Grave memorial is supposed to be a likeness or just representative of a generic Frenchman of his time?

Col. Ellsworth's Grave
Thank you for posting that pic of his gravesite. I noticed that there seems to be a mistake on the name that is on the fence. It has D. for his middle name instead of E. for Ephraim.

RE: Carter Family
You can contact me: The LeMay name sounds familiar to me. Looking forward to conversations about our ancestors.

Pvt. George Tubbs
George Tubbs (1775-1826) is not in Rose/Chamberlain Cemetery, he is in Maryland/McKown Cemetery, about two miles farther west, memorial number 92625521. I photoed him just the other day, mainly drawn by the age of the stone. If you want the site, let me know. I cannot find any reference to Anna Vera Buell Tubbs in either place. I will continue to look for her.

I have a Robert LeMay #63370703 at Saint Mary's, not Saint Joseph's, Cemetery in Waterford. Let me know if he is one of your LeMay group, and I'll transfer his memorial to you.
