Jean-Baptiste Couture who emigrated to the United States like 900,000 other French-Canadians now has several new descendants who knew nothing about their roots.
Well until now…
This is the case of all the descendants of Albert D. Seymour who was a son of Jean-Baptiste Couture. Albert was little Sophie’s brother.
Albert D. Seymour was born around 1855 and he died on February 22, 1920 in Grand Ledge, in Eaton County, Michigan. He was married to Laura Cramer on July 3, 1883 in Mt Pleasant, in Isabella County, Michigan. After Albert died, Laura remarried on July 11, 1920 with George P. Bartlett.
Albert D. Seymour and Laura Cramer had at least eight children.

Lloyd M. Seymour is our link to the person and her daughter who both wrote me about their Seymour lineage.
