Robert Colombo [email protected], Please try, is a very large group of folks with that name. Samuel RAYMOND born in 1865 Parents being John RAYMOND born in 1834 and Matilda Gordon born in 1836. Some said he deserted, but much of the story does not match the facts which I have found.
The Drouin Collection of records (available by subscription online) may be a help to you if you feel he may of had French roots. I am hoping to find where the families of John and Matilda came from. I believe shortly after he arrived in August of 1814 and after the Treaty in 1815 he may have been given a military land grant.
I want to begin by telling you how much I appreciate your time with me on the telephone today regarding the SABALL ancestry. 1949 Massachusetts His father was Louis Sabolle and was baptized at (Sacred Heart) Missions des Cantons de l'Est 28/05/1839, age de 3 semaines Francois et Adelaide Gravelle, journalier du canton de Stanstead Along with SABOLLE, Felix 8/05/1839 age de 2 ans 3 mois SABOLLEMarie-Philomene bapt 11/07/1842 nais 13/06/1842Alphay, Louis, Cyrus, George, Marie, Alfred, Emma The relative with the Masonic Symbol was Julius G SABALL (jr) b. The records for the parish of Sacre Coeur when it was served by a missionnary priest are on a few pieces of paper that were copied by someone who had gone to the diocese office years ago. However if you were to have a look at the Drouin Records you should find all catholic records there. I do not find the name Raymond on the 1791 NH census but there are several in Vermont. My grandfather was born in Georgeville, so I am assuming the other children were as well.
I have covered all the Historical Societies north of the border, with Kathy Curtis being very helpful.
I have covered all the usual genealogy sites, Ancestry.com, etc.
I say birth records for his parents because most all Beebe's in North America are decedents of John Beebe, 1650 and were born in the US, going up to Canada to fight in the War or to settle, but again being born in the US..
Our branch doesn't seem to be attached to that tree since most of them immigrated to Canada in the early 1800's. Lewis Beebe and just a few names down in the same town, is an Ephraim Bebe.
I was just reading some of the Log Cabin chronicle posting and I thought maybe you could give me some direction.
