I just started researching my family and found that on my paternal side I had a set of ggggggrandparents named Maxime and Felicite Fleure (maiden name unknown) who married and settled in Grand Rapids, Michigan. According to the 1850 census Maxime was born in 1815 and Felicite Fleure in 1818. They were both born in Canada before coming to the U.S. They had several children one of whom was my gggggrandmother Jane born in approx. 1840. Have you ever come across a Maxim Ringuette in any of your family research?
I look forward to hearing from you.
