Do you know if there is any way to clarify one way or the other whether he was the natural child of Noe & Virginie? Lynnette Collard Lyn [email protected], It would be best to see that original church record first if you can.

and the Canadian Achieves site without any success.

The messages below are focused south of the border, but again it seems I have come up against a dead end with Bill.

Family stories suggest he was part indian , adopted as a baby.

Other stories suggest Noe and family went back and forth from the US.

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.

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.

If he did have he may have been called Jacques Robert. I think possible he is the one showing in Boynton Cemetery who died age 27 years. I know Matilda emigrated to Vermont in 1869 or 1870 and eventually lived with her son William in Concord, Vermont. I am now looking at the British Military Records, the Quebec Registre Foncier, to glean factual information and also Alonzo land transactions.
