Hi, I just read your posting written some time ago. I am the 2nd great granddaughter to Ferdinand Barcomb. As a different family member I wanted to reaffirm that my Mother too said everyone in the family spoke broken English and therefore the names were incorrect in many instances. My mom just came home from vacation in Tupperlake and brought me a french dictionary. I am going to try and decipher some of the old baptism, birth & death records. Rose Barcomb was my Great Grandmother and her daughter, my grandmother Ruth Dumont is still alive, she is 96yrs. It's kind of a strange story because there was a weird marraige where Ruth's Husband Gerald.....their widowed/divorced parents married each other aka Elmer & Rose (Barcomb) Dumont. I know your question was how far is anyone getting because of the language issue. Not very far yet is the answer but am working on it gathering headstone photos, now with 3 old french dictionary's I might get somewhere? The problem is it's French Canut aka French/Canada and not true French. I understand some of that and am working on it.
