I realize that this is quite a late response; however, I too am just beginning my ancestry research.
Francis Xavier is my great-great grandfather. I am related through his son Henry Charles. Henry, Ignatius and Franz 'Frank' Joseph all lived in Springfield, Illinois after leaving Saint Genevieve, Missouri.
Although I was born and raised in Springfield, I am now retired and living in Orlando, Florida.
I have some information that I can share. Please contact me at:
