My mom was a Gallier from Beaumont. She was dtr of Jacob John Jr, son of JJ Sr, son of Joseph Sr, son of a Francois, I believe. There I get confused as there are several Francois'... born in varying years of 1819(I believe bro of Joseph), 1795, 1772, 1768, and 1737 (married to Henriette Grossin).
I'm missing most of the female spouses/mothers. Some people have Felicity Bertrand as the mother of Joseph Sr.(who was born in 1814 or 1815), but I believe Joseph's father had a first wife since Felicity and Francois married in 1818.
Perhaps you can help me straighten it all out. I've looked to see if you (terrichelsea) show any hints on your public trees... but it looks like your Gallier/Galliens is private.
I had been working on the assumption that the Gallier/Gallien line descended from Francois Gallier (b. 1737..parents not known) and Henriette Grossin, but I'm beginning to think this might be wrong.
This is all so confusing. I've decided that people should not be allowed to use the same name more than once in a family... lol All of those Josephs, Francois, etc.
