My CARPENTIER'S are thru my greatx2 grandpa Fredrick J. DEGERLIA they are his half brothers and sisters. His mother Rachel (JOHNSON) CARPENTIER DEGERIA was first married to John B CARPENTIER (b.CANADA) IN PIKE CO IL AROUND 1829-30. He later moved his family to CALHOUN CO IL. and died between 1847-50. Their known children were Evalyn (b.1830) CARPENTIER PEELER; Sara (B.1835) CARPENTIER CALVEY LAMAR; Nancy Marie (b.1837) CARPENTIER AMON; James CARPENTIER (b.1838); William CARPENTIER (b.1843); Emeline CARPENTIER SENATZ (B.1848); Serena (b.1848) CARPENTIER HEATON. Is your Joseph the brother of John B. CARPENTIER? Also could you share any info on John B.'s parents or siblings. We are also connected thru my greatx2 grandma's brother Theodore DEGERLIA JR he married Margaret J STYERS the daughter of A.J. & Margaret (Your Margaret) CARPENTIER STYERs. One more thing your Margeret CARPENTIER STYERS 2nd husband Joseph Navarre is most
likely a grandchild of my greatx5 twice and greatx4 once grandpa Antoine DEJARLAIS/DEGERLIA SR (b.1769-75 CANADA).
Thank you, Cara Yinger
