Clue No.1: 1850 U.S. Census

Closing the book on Françoise Trudeau…

Our Ancestors

Are you ready for this?

You will have to bear with me because I am going to go step by step in all this search for Anton Cayo’s ancestors even if it takes the whole year. I will focus only on the Cayos unless someone related to Aldéi Lord’s ashtray contacts me.

This being said let’s have a close look at clue numero uno. These Cayos are not Spaniards, nor Mexicans…

They were French-Canadians!

Clue no. 1

September 19th, 1850, Colchester, Vermont.

1850 U.S. Census Peter Kayou

There is a family on this census page.

It’s Peter Kayou’s family.

1850 Peter Kayou family

All the family members were born in Canada according to this census. Censuses are not always a reliable source, but in this case, I will use them and proceed cautiously.

The wife of Peter Kayou is Frances. She’s 45 years and thus would have been born around 1805.

1850 Frances Kayou 1805

She is probably Françoise Trudeau. I can’t think…

I feel like Nostradamus this morning.

An urge to write again.

This is precisely when Dennis left his message on Gen Forum

I’m the son of Lionel Lagasse and the grandson of Levi N. Lagasse and Marie Louise (Dube) Lagasse. Levi was one of twelve children born to my great-grandfather Dennis, and the Lagasse name was spelled with a “y” at the end for a time. My great-grandfather Dennis was killed in 1921 in an industrial accident while working in Bristol CT. U.S.A.

Are there any others with a great-grandfather Dennis in their family tree?

I replied on June 17, 2010 at 19:08:24…

Dennis (Stanislas) Lagasse married Harriet (Henriette) Alexandre in 1862.

They had 13 chridren (typo!).

My grandfather Léo Senior is their son. He was the last child.

He was born June 6, 1888.

I know all…

Post 657

This might be the most important post on this blog about our ancestors.

Maybe someone out there on cyberspace is looking for his or her ancestors like Dennis Lagasse was in 2011. I had seen Dennis Lagasse’s message on a genealogy forum that Dennis had left in 2008 if I don’t have these senior moments once again.

Luckily I had kept his message in my files so I can share it again with you.

Antoine and Marie were living in Beloeil, Quebec, with their daughter Lucie Trudeau and her husband Urbain Aubé.

135 years ago…

In the 1880 U.S. Census, in Lincoln, Providence, Rhode Island, United States, Urbain and Lucie are there.


Urbain Aubey Self M 65 Canada
Lucie Aubey Wife F 67 Canada
Adolph Spaulding Son-in-law M 45 Canada
Lucie Spaulding Daughter F 40 Canada
Albert Spaulding Grandson M 19 Canada
Wallace Spaulding Grandson M 17 Canada
Albertine Spaulding Granddaughter F 15 Canada
James Spaulding Grandson M 14 Canada
Mary Spaulding Granddaughter F 12 Canada
Carolina Spaulding Granddaughter F 10 Rhode Island, United States

Joseph Spaulding Grandson M 8 Rhode Island, United States
Rosanna Spaulding Granddaughter F 0 Rhode Island, United

Antoine Trudeau and Marie Dufaut are not living with them anymore. Marie would have been 106 and Antoine 104. Urbain and Lucie probably emigrated to the United States around 1870 since Carolina was born in the U.S.

I could go on and on with this search, but I prefer to wait for someone to write me like Rose did in search of her ancestors.
