My Peter Papineau was born Peter De Repentigny on June 11,1863 in Chateaugay, NY. Peter later moved to Vermont and died in Waterbury. His parents were: Joseph DeRepentigny and Maria-Melina Routier (Gautier). There other children were: JOseph, Odile, Jacob(James), Zepherin, Carol, Judson, Henry, Edward, and John. If anyone has any clues to why they started to go by Papineau, but have no known Papineau ancestors, please let me know. Some of Peter's brothers who stayed in NY, later went by the name Pappineau.
