Brenda: Thank You for the info. I live in North Sydney and Prosper was my Great-great grandfather. Thus far I have found records of George and Prosper LeFresne back to 1864 in Isle Aux Morts. I believe that all the Lefresnes are descendents of these two men. The LeFresne (LeFrense, LeFren, LeFrank) names seem to be predominantly east coast. Next to no families in NB, Que, Ont, Man, Sask, Al or BC.
Please Keep me in mind if you find any further records. I am interested in finding out when Philip LeFresne died. He was lost at sea some time after 1901.
