I'm working on my Rousseau/Martin Family and it fits in with yours but you have different information than I do and I'm confused. Can you help me sort this out?
My 2nd great grandfather was Charles Rousseau born about 1832 in Canada. I can't find him until the 1860 St. Ignace, Michigan census where he is married to Charlotte Martin (I have her dad listed as Solomon Martin, where you have Charles Martin?
In the 1860 census Charles and Charlotte had their last name as Rousseaux (note spelling) and had two children with them: Antoine Babineaux and Macala Babineaux. I believe the correct spelling of this is Babineau. (my grandma, Charles and Charlotte's granddaughter, used to visit a Charlie Babineau who she said was her cousin. He lived in Bayfield/Ashland, Wisconsin area.)
Antoine stays with Charles and Charlotte Rousseau and in the 1880 census he is listed as their son, Antoine Reso (note spelling). I've been told Charlotte married a Antoine Babineau before she married Charles and he is the father of these two boys. Antoine's name changes with each census, from Babineaux to Delosier to Reso.
Charles and Charlotte had 4 children together:
Joseph M. Rousseau born about 1867 in Michigan
Charlotte J. Rousseau born about 1868 in Michigan
Charles Rousseau born about 1871 in Michigan
John Jonas Rousseau (my great grandfather)born May 17, 1875 in Beaver Island, Michigan. John Jonas is the only one I have been able to find any information on.
The rest of this family remains a mystery--it's been a 15 year old brick wall. So if you can assist me in sorting out these details I would be forever grateful.
