Ditto to dit name Duteau then Blutteau

Anyone researching the Ditto surname from Quebec, Canada.

I have found lots of new information for my Joseph Henry Ditto who married Mary Etta Stearns in Geauga County, Ohio. Joseph and Mary moved to Ferris Twp., Montcalm Co., MI and then to Petoskey, Emmett Co., MI where I believe both of them died. But, both are buried in the Ferris Center Cememtery in Ferris Twp., Montcalm Co., MI.

Now, it gets tricky. I have a letter from his father. Names at the bottom are Pierre and Marie Duteau. (It was addressed to Joseph Ditto - Dear son)

Actual name: Pierre Duteau dit Blutteau and wife Marie Boudreau.

Other children of Pierre and Marie: Pierre, Louis, Marie, Jean Baptiste, Michel, Marcelline, Phebe, Josephte, Philomene, John, Mitchell? and possibily Carrie and Peter.

I have located this family and many many other relatives in the Quebec area. Also, some in the Clinton Co., NY area which is just south of Quebec, Canada.

It seems only a few used the Ditto surname. Larger percent used Duteau.

This family is of Huegenot (spelled right?) ancestry. Line goes back to early 1600's.

Would love to hear from others researching the same line.
