You are certainly correct about the confusion regarding the Felix/Peloquin geneology. Who was your grandfather? Wanda is my first cousin, and Homer Peloquin my uncle. My dad didn't talk much about the family and our history except in his later years.
I'd be interested in what you had. What would you like to know from me? I'm not sure how much stock I'd put in Ray's geneology before Edouoard (Peloquin dit) Felix, my ggrandfather. I'm not saying Ray is wrong, but it is hard to reconcile what he's writted with other aspects of family history. It doesn't help much to know that Edouard likely married twice and had children from both wives.
Remember that I did not grow up in Chippewa (which is as you point out a major center of the Peloquins/Felixes in the Midwest) so I am not privy to many of the family stories. My dad simply did not tell us any stories about his family. I think remembering people that had passed on was painful for him so he simply never talked about them other than in platitudes.
By the way, my dad's sisters Judy (Julia) and Em are still living. Judy is in her 90s and Em is in her late 80s! Em is still just as sharp as a tack. Judy is a little "out there".
I wish I lived back in Wisconsin so I could see more of them.
