Urbain Tessier did own land around the Place de Armes. One side of the square contains a huge church whose name escapes me at the time. When we visited there last year it was being remodeled and being Sunday was rather hard to enter without interrupting Sunday services. However, the librarian at the public library was most helpful in showing us books documenting Urbain's presence in the city and even a map that showed the location of his early land holdings. Thank you so much for the explanation of the law suit. It surely sent a lot of descendants into a tizzy thinking that they were going to become rich. Especially at the height of the depression. Some correspondence I have does show the sale of shares to support the lawsuit but nowhere does it show that my group ever got their act together to submit proof of their connection to Urbain. How easy is it to access this sort of information through the Canadian Archives? Which of course brings me to my next concern. My Tessier relative used the last name Casey. I have recently come across some marriage information that would indicate his given name was Dionysius. Has anyone in their searching come across this name? I am still waiting a copy of his death certificate from the state of New York. They are slower than the proverbial molasses. Anyway enough rambling thanks for any input you may offer in my dilemma and I appreciate the clarification on the lawsuit. Sara Burkholder
