In Reply to: DELORME/Dube/Lemay - PLEASE HELP by Terri Delorme Collins of 336

Any ideas of how the two names connected originally? I descend from Peter Lemay who arrived in VA ca 1700. He had an unk first marriage and at least one child, Charles and maybe Sarah?. He married secondly, Sarah ___ and had at least two ch; Samuel and John. Sarah md second Gilbert Gibson and had more chilren.At least one Lemay child, John, used the surname of Gibson at times.

A good Lemay researcher who died this past Spring, Arl Lemay of Virginia, thought;
The Lemay's in Canada came in as DeLormes and changed back to LeMay. He said there was a Pierre DeLorme that came in
(without a wife) on the Mary and Ann on August 12, 1700. On the same ship were Thomas L. LeMay's ancestors; Abraham Moulin, later Mullen, and his wife and daughter and her husband, Jacques Broret. These families are thought to have
moved from Manakintown to NC ca 1707.

Anyone know anything about this story? I am aware that religion was a huge consideration in early Virginia Colonies so moves and name changes would be helpful.

Later, Ginny Keefer
