This is in reply to Lynne's posting of 1999; however, if anyone else can give any more information on this family, I would appreciate it!
Elisa Royer (daughter of Jean-Baptiste Royer and Anatasie (aka Tassie) Bocage) married Jean-Baptiste Cabana (son of Jean-Baptiste Charron Cabanac and ????). I was told the name Charron was dropped and also the second "c" of Cabanac, and as a result, today, the surname is simply Cabana.
From Family Genealogy/Information: Elisa Royer (possible aka "Lizzie Royer"), was the daughter of Jean-Baptiste Royer and Anastasie Bocage. She was born in Sheldon, Vermont, July 12, 1846, and died in Barre, Vermont on July 29, 1912. She married Jean-Baptiste Cabana, who was born in Sheldon, Vermont on July 1, 1842. He died and was buried in Mansonville, Quebec, Canada, on January 17, 1915. He served in the Civil War--6th Vermont Infantry, Co. K. He was pensioned because of that accident.
Jean-Baptiste Cabana and Elisa Royer had 8 children:
- Marie Adel Cabana LaPanne
- Octave Cabana
- Paul Cabana
- Michel Cabana (might have married a _____? Cote)
- Delia Cabana McDonald
- Delphine Cabana
- Noel Cabana
- Archie Cabana
If anyone has any information or can add anything regarding these families, please let me know. I do not know the name of Jean-Baptiste Cabana's mother, only that his father's name was also Jean-Baptiste Cabana--please contact me if you can help.
Thanks very much for any additional information!
