You won't find him there - at least not

Project Pioneer Seeks Descendants Of 2019 Honored Families
Ste. Genevieve Project Pioneer will honor three families next year at Jour de Fete, the French Misplait/Misplay family and the German Schmidt and Schmelzle families.
While the early Schmelzle family of Ste. Genevieve County is fairly well documented, the group is naming a few early residents that may connect to present day families who are unaware of their ancestry.
There was a Bazile Misplait in the earliest family to settle in Ste. Genevieve. He migrated to Washington County where he died in 1849.
In the Schmidt family, an Ursula Schmidt was married to a William Otte in 1865 in Ste. Genevieve. Their children were born in the French Village and Lawrenceton areas from 1869 to 1884.
This family is also represented in the Figge, Huber, Stoekle and Grass families, as George Figge was married to Regina Grass.
Bernard Huber was married to a Schmidt and their children were born in the Zell and River Aux Vases areas from 1860 to 1866. This family later moved to Texas.
The Joseph Schmidt family also is represented in the Stoekle and Grass families.
To check out information already gathered by Ste. Genevieve Project Pioneer, ask for the family book at the Ste. Genevieve Library. Also, check with the oldest family members and start a discussion when the family gathers during the holidays. Then bring the information to the next Project Pioneer meeting in February 2019.

Project Pioneer Meets Saturday, Nov. 10
The final meeting this year to prepare for the reunion of the French Misplait, Misplay families and the German Schmidt and Schmelzle families is Saturday, Nov. 10, at the meeting room of the Ste. Genevieve County Library. These families will be honored at the Jour de Fete on August 10 & 11, 2019.
Family information will be accepted at the meeting, and a review of the activities of Project Pioneer will be presented. Meetings will not be held during December and January but will resume on the second Saturday of each month beginning Feb. 9 and running through July of 2019.
Families are urged to use the holiday season to gather with their families and record information for inclusion in the books to be available Jour de Fete weekend.
