I found this in the New Orleans Public Library. It is probably in most libraries in Virginia. However, it was not in the Clayton Library in Houston, which is supposed to be exceptional for genealogical research, or so I am told. I have a copy of the article on page 148. In this article the Boisseau family is traced from 1685 (Edict of Nantes)
to 19th century Virginia. The article has copies of letters written from France to the Americas and St. Kitts, where the family had a plantation. Of course, Tudor Hall, in Viriginia, was also a Boisseau plantation. The article has very touching letters from to J. Holmes DeS. Boisseau from his father. Many letters from various Boisseau family members are printed in this article, giving a vast view of the family until the Civil War (US). The letters were saved by a Boisseau lady, and translated from the French by, theoretically the last French speaking family member. They were destroyed in a fire at the time of the Civil War. Supposedly, the translations still exist (in English) owned by a "Doggett", I think in New Jersey.
