Robin dit Lapointe from Clamecy
Posted by: Daniel Lapointe Date: August 29, 2000 at 06:35:13
  of 186

My first ancestor that came to Canada was a soldier of the Carignan Regiment from France.
His name was Jean Robin and from what i learned, the regiment gave him the name of "dit Lapointe". So he was named Jean Robin dit Lapointe and was married with Perrette Gauterio. they were from arround Clamecy,Nièvre, Bourgogne. Sometimes i saw in my researche StMartin D'auxerre Clamecy Nivernois. I'm trying to find who were their parents. My grand father gave the name Lapointe to his children, he dropped the Robin name, i don't know why.His brothers kept the name Robin and dropped the Lapointe.
