Ron -
You are a fairly close relative of mine! I've been hoping to contact someone from your branch of the family, since Napoleon, Albina, and Bella are all buried in my home town! Please email me directly at and maybe we can speak (or meet if you live locally!). The D'Artois family immigrated to Canada (New France) as L'Homme, then added the dit Artois since they were from the Artois region of France. Later the L'Homme part was dropped and they used just D'Artois.
Here is the lineage for Napoleon:
* Alexandre L'Homme & Helene Deliercourt (also d'Hercourt, d'Herevust or Delcourt) (m. 12 Jan 1723 St Croix, Arras, Artois, Pas-De-Calais, France)
* Jean Pierre L'Homme Artois (b. 29 Jun 1729 St Croix, Arras, Artois, Pas-De-Calais, France). Married (18 Apr 1757 Ste. Famile, Boucherville, Chambly, PQ) to Marie Jeanne Robert Fontaine (her second marriage) (b. 14 Sep 1727 Chambly, d. 22 Jun 1803 St. Mathias). Jean Pierre was a soldier in the Regiment de Bearn, Compagnie D'Aubrespy.
* Antoine L'Homme dit Artois (b. 29 Sep 1761 St. Mathias). Married (8 Oct 1792 Longueuil, Chambly) to Marie Desanges Lajeunesse (b. ~1772)
*Louis Pierre L'Homme dit Artois (b. 31 Aug 1798 St. Mathias). Married (17 Nov 1817 St. Mathias) to Theotiste (also Sophie or Etier) Beique-Lafleur (b. 19 May 1800, d. ~1840).
* Joseph L'Homme dit Artois. Married (23 Oct 1849 St. Mathias) to Rosalie Viens (also Vient or Prese) (b ~1832, daughter of Toussaint Viens and Catherine Cheval St. Jacques). Joseph had a brother, Louis Pierre L'Homme dit Artois who is my ggg grandfather!
*Joseph Napoleon D'Artois (b. 1864, d. 31 Jan 1936). Married Albina Bessette (b. 1868, d. 3 Jan 1929, daughter of Raphael Bessette and Elmire). Buried in Notre Dame Cemetary, South Hadley, MA.
I might (not sure) have a picture of Napoleon. I inherited a photo labelled "Napoleon D'Artois" and have been wondering if this is the right Napoleon since he lived nearby. My grandmother, Clarinda D'Artois, and her sister, Nathalie D'Artois, both lived in South Hadley.
Hope this helps. I have lots more info on siblings, etc. that we can exchange!
