Hi, My great-great grandfather was Alexandre D'Amours (Damour, Demour). His estimated birthdate is 1860 in either St.Michel or Trois-Rivieres, Quebec. He was a seaman. He died in 1928. His father's name was George. The family story is that his family escaped the French Revolution, became a privateer, sailed with Jean Lafitte and fought in the Battle of New Orleans. Then over the years made their way to Quebec. The possible names mentioned are Phillippe, and Arturs.

I'm trying to distinguish between family story and fact. Does anyone have a Georges (pere), Alexandre (fils) around 1860 in any of their family trees? If you do please email me at andeyam @ gmail dot com Thanks.
