I'v been working on my Rousseau family brick wall for 15 years with no luck. Now I'm trying a different approach to research but I need your help. I'm trying to piece together Rousseau families in Minnesota and Michigan to find out which families are which.
1940 Minneapolis, Hennepin, MN census
has John Rousseau born about 1878 in Minnesota, white male, widowed and it says in 1935 he was living in Brainerd, Crow Wing.
Does anyone know anything about this John Rousseau from Brainerd?
I have also found a US WW1 Draft Registration Card 1917-1918 for:
John Rousseau born April 15, 1876 and was living in Duluth, MN when he filed. Address was 2609 RR St. Duluth, he was a Laborer for Scott Graff Lumber Company and his nearest relative was Rose Rousseau (I'm guessing his wife)
I have a hunch these may be the same John Rousseau but as of yet I have no proof.
I hope someone here can help me with John Rousseau from Brainerd. If you have any information please let me know.
