Sorry to be late in getting back with you. I have been in Indiana helping to care for my sister who is terminally ill. I will forward your query to the LABOYTEAUX Discussion List and to Arlene (Wimmer) Hill. Perhaps she or someone on the list can help you better than I can.

Subject: Peter Laboyteaux & Keziah Sebring genalogy
I am writing as a result of the site you posted in January 1999 reference the Shields, Hancock & Laboyteaux Families.
Though I am writing about an entirely different subject, noting the route of the Shields & Hancock families, into Preble & Butler counties in Ohio, it reminds me of my Quaker ancestors. The Stubbs settled in those two counties and I believe some of my Gordon ancestors resided at one time in Hamilton County. Though I do not believe Graves is in my Stubbs family line, I know the Graves family name is prominent in one of the lines. I have a distant cousin who has studied his Graves line.
The reason I am writing:
I recently learned that a G.G.grandmother, the former Mary Curley, was the daughter of William & Catherine (Stryker) Curley. I have learned considerable about the Stryker and Curley families. The mystery I have involves Catherine (Stryker) Curley's mother.
Catherine's father was Jacob Stryker (1767-1840) and her mother was said to be Hanna Laboyteaux. I have found sites that state Hanna was the daughter of Peter Laboyteaux (1737-1811) and Keziah Sebring (1743/44-1814). However I have found sites where the Hanna who married Jacob Stryker is not shown as a daughter of this couple. I also have found a list of children born to Peter & Keziah which does not show a Hanna as a daughter.
I just found a site which shows the following - which has different dates for the couple and refers to Peter's Will:
- - - - - -
"Laboyteaux, Peter, son of Peter and Mary, b. 1737, m. Keziah Sebring, d. 14 Sep. 1813. His Will is dated 5 Aug 1813. Children: Hannah b. France, Jemima b. abt. 1764 Middlesex Co. N.J., Mary, Abiah, Phebe, Dorothy, Katherine, Peter, John, Joseph. Laboyteaux, Hannah, dau. of Peter & Keziah, b. France, m. Jacob Stryker abt. 1790, about 1800 they moved from, Branchberg, Somerset Co. N.J. to Ovid, Seneca Co. N.Y, by 1830 they were in Johnson (should be Johnston), Trumbull Co., Oh. Hannah probably bur. Laboyteaux Cemetery, North College Hill, OH."
- - - - - -
Apparently Peter & Keziah (Sebring) Laboyteaux died in Hamilton County. Do you know anything about Peter" Will? I am interested in finding if the Will indeed does make reference to a daughter Hannah and if it does indicate her married surname is Styker.
(I have found a site that states Jacob Stryker died at "Mecca" Ohio. That town was in the township of Mecca, in Trumbull County. But I have also found a site that speculates he was buried in the Laboyteaux Cemetery in Hamilton County.)
