The Hotte Family

I have not written about the Hotte family on Our Ancestors. I have only written on Nos ancêtres, the French version of Our Ancestors.

It does not help much unless you can read French.

In my search for an old college friend’s ancestors I had stumbled upon the strange case of a woman who was only known by her first name.

She was Geneviève who married Joseph Tassé on February 17, 1817. They had a girl Élisabeth Tassé born on November 14, 1817, and a son Joseph born on October 8, 1819. Joseph died 20 days later. His mother Geneviève died the week before on October 14. Élisabeth’s father would remarried on November 13, 1820 with Marguerite Valiquette. Marguerite would most probably have adopted little Élisabeth, but that I don’t know.

What I know is that Élisabeth would marry Zéphirin Hotte dit Lafeuillade on January 28, 1834 in St-Martin-de-Laval, Île-Jésus, in the province of Québec. Zéphirin and Élisabeth had seven children.

At least that’s what I found.

Zéphirin Hotte 1835–1903 (my friend’s maternal great-grandfather)
Rose-de-Lima Hotte 1836–1910
Césaire Hotte 1837–1918
Gédéon Hotte 1844–1920
Salomé Hotte 1848–
Marie Hotte dit Lafeuillade 1851–1851
Alphonse Hotte 1853–1915

Some children later in life emigrated to the United States. This is why I will write about the Hotte family on Our Ancestors in 2020 starting with Césaire Hotte and a search on Find A Grave if someone writes a comment.
