In Reply to: Re: FRANCOIS MARIE (XAVIER)RACICOT by Sharon Westmoreland of 401

F. Rassicot who married Lewis Stricker July 17 or 18 in a Catholic Church in Knox County Indiana. What year was the marriage? The name Rassicot was originally spelled Racicot and one of the first to settle in Post Vincennes was Fancois Marie (Xavier) Racico before 1800. He was from Boucherville,Quebec,Canada. The language in Post Vincennes, Indiana Territory was mostly French in the early days. The name Racicot was spelled various ways by those who spoke English instead of French. Such as Racicault,Rosco Rassicot, Rassicott, & later Rasico. The sound of the surname is all the same.
Your inquirey of F. Rassicot sounds like the F could stand for Francoise. The spelling of Racicot was frequently spelled Rassicot during the later 1800's
The Indiana Historical Society located in Indianapolis,Indiana has available micro film and records of marriages that took place at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church Knox County, Indiana setarting in the early 1700's until the 1900's. I hope this has been of some help to you. Good luck. Don Rasico
