In Reply to: Re: Urbain Tessier Family by Jerry Lesperance of 1317

I was so thankful to hear from you. A cousin of mine in Michigan happened to run into another relative in Michigan who knew some of the history and she managed to print the entire lineage of our ancestor Urbain Tessier and handed it out at a Tacia family reunion in Michigan two years ago. My father probably knew some details but died of a heart attack before telling us history of the family. My mother, who was divorced from my father many years ago, lost her memory from strokes nine years before she died last year. My cousin also said she had gotten a little information from her father Capron Tacia before he died and he was able to go back to Joseph Tacia who was born probably in the 1840's. We always wondered why we couldn't find many Tacia's and we finally found out the name was changed when one of them came to New York State where my grandfather Benjamin was born. Reading the information we have I don't know how to trace Joseph back to before the name was changed. I am new at this geneology stuff and I live in California. I am really enthralled at this discovery. My grandfather was 44 when he married Hattie Kilborn so I was only 9 when he died in 1944 and he was already 82 years old and quite chrochety! I truly thank you for your interest and help.
