I have George Andreas DeRousse, immigrant,
naturalized 1840 Philadelphia, and his son,
Louis Theodore DeRousse, and many other
DeRousse's of NJ and PA. I suspect this name
may have migrated to Millville, NJ, and
possibly even out midwest! Please contact
me. Such given names as Oswald, Harry, Henry,
Laura, and many others...

There are a group spelling name Derousse in Illinois records. Their decendants in Randolph county illinois and are of Festus Crystal City Missouri. A school record (Kaskaskia School) even had name misspelled Drouse. My wifes maiden dame was Deloris De Rousse. Try internet address Check various Illinois searchs. Arthur

Thanks for mentioning this. I am well aware
that at least a couple of Illinois counties
have this surname. I feel it is possibly
connected, but perhaps more likely not. My
line's ancestor was 1830's arrival PA, and
naturalized 1840. Illinois branch goes back
further, I believe.

I am descended from this line and live in Festus, MO. I have this line traced back to Pierre DeRousse/Dirouche who came to New Orleans in 1720. He was born ca. 1696 in St. Pierre, Santelot, FR.

I too am descended from this line of DeRousse. I don't know that much about it but I do know they came to the IL area with LaSalle on his journies. I am looking for information on my paternal grandmother, her name was Ruby Derickson (DeRousse), daughter of Bessie Derousse. My grandmother died in or around 1960 and Bessie died in 1983. Thank you.

So far, I have not succeeded in connecting
my Philadelphia/New Jersey DEROUSSE to any
outside those states. There are many, many
who list Illinois, etc. If you do find a
missing link between the two, please let
me know. I have two generations back in
Alsace-Lorraine, France.
