I am working on the problem of who are the parents of John J. I brief
review of where I come from, my great grandmother is Cornelia Laboyteaux
Wilkinson, her father is Hiram, b. 15 Apr 1841 in Hamilton Co. Ohio, married
Elizabeth Ann Fisher 8 feb. 1863 in Mt. Healthy Ohio and died 3 Nov. 1911 in
Henry Co. IN. I recently received some information from Tom Hamm who looked
up a few things for me. On Hiram Laboyteaux's death certificate in Henry
Co. IN, Hiram's birth place, birth and death dates were confirmed. Hiram's
father was listed as Jackson Laboyteaux, and his mother as Eliza Moffet,
birthplaces of both parents unknown. Tom says as John's tombstone reads
John J. Laboyteaux, "most likely he was John Jackson." Tom also checked the
record of Hiram's second marriage, to Phebe Finley and found Hiram's father
listed as John Laboyteaux, mother---------Monfort.
Yesterday I found who I think is my John J. on the 1830 US Fed Census in
Hamilton Co. Colerain 2 Twp. If I am right in thinking the names
surrrounding John J. are his neighbors, he has some interesting names to
think about. One is John Montford, which is suspiciously close to John J.'s
wife maiden name of Moffet/Monfort. I looked up John Montford on Roots Web
and think I found his family, not much about John or his father Lawrence
Monfort, but his mother was interesting. John/Jan Montfort/Montford was born
7 Jul 1775 in Conewago, PA to Elizabeth Cossart who was born 29 Aug 1758 in
Somerset Co. NJ and baptised 26 Nov. 1758 at Raritan Dutch Church, NJ. The
family removed to Ohio about 1799 and settled in Lebanon, Warren Co. OH.
Other names surrounding John J. on the 1830 Fed census are Thomas Runyon,
Reuben Fisher, Susan Johns, James Hardin Adam (T?)iets, Spencer Phillips.
I am making plans to go to Hamilton County soon to see what I can find.
Anybody have any advice or anything I can look up?
