DeJeans of La Farge, Wi

DeJeans of La Farge, Wi

looking for information about Cora DeJean who married Ralph Henry, from La Farge, Wi. I am assuming she must fit into the puzzle of Thomas/Anson DeJean who were founders of LaFarge, but i have no information about her parents or siblings. Cora and Ralph had children named Alfred, Florence, Charlotte, Annie, Bruce, Frances (my great grandmother), Hastin, Russell, Clarence, and Hildegard. Help appreciated!

Have you been able to gather information from census and what years were you able to get back to? If you need any help with census just ask.

Could Cora be child of Alfred and Sara and then Alfred son of Thomas and Polly? Alfred is brother to Anson. This is what my first look at census shows me with my limited knowledge of your family.

Yes, thank you that is the one! I just got a reply via email from a man who writes a blog about the history of La Farge, and have now connected Cora to her parents, Alfred and Sarah, grandparents Thomas and Polly, and great grandfather would be Stephen Louis DeJean, one of the famous DeJean brothers who escaped from Paris.

Have you gathered census on the family? This will atleast start you in the documentation on them. I can send you what I have if you need them.
