I would like to correspond with descendants of Marin Janot dit LaChapelle
who arrived in Canada circa 1653.
Over the last few years I have been trying to figure out where my family
came from and who they were.
My immediate family was descended from Eusebe "Lugar" LaChapelle and Alida
Dube. they were married in New Bedford, Ma and had five known sons:
Alphonse (Hilo) who lived in Mass and RI ; Ernest, who was adopted and
became John Brooks and lived in Gerald, Mo ; Arthur who lived in Silver
Springs, Md ; Wilfrid who moved to California ; and Ulric George, my Father,
who lived in Mass. I have been told that there may have been a Sister, Rose
but I have no proof as yet.
Eusebes family lived in New Bedford until their ran off and deserted the
family and was never heard from again. I would like to know where he went
and DOD etc. Alida died either from childbirth or from childbirth
complications from Ulric in 1901. The kids then were cared for by two Aunts
(unknown to me) and eventually became Wards of the Court in Massachuseets
and were then raised by Nuns.
