My great-great grandmother is said to be Sophia(Sophronia) Launderville---I have a written note by my great-aunt that my grandfather's middle name of Launderville came from his grandmother's maiden name. She is reportedly born in Canada--Quebec??? Sophie married Joseph Messer about 1850's--I have seen them in Keene, NH census 1860 and Northfield, VT 1870. I am NOT sure if the above spelling is correct. Any help out there?

the information you have is very close. Her name was Saphronia Launderville and the man you are speaking of was her second husband.

Can you tell me anymore about Saphronia Launderville? The info I had in my original message is all we have. We have been at a brick wall with this for quite awhile. Would like to converse with you more about her and her family---busybeedlh@juno.com

My grandmother's name was Laura Launderville and lived in Cleveland OH. She moved to Chicago and married my grandfather, Alexander Frank, about 1903. She died in 1956 in Chicago at the age of about 63. She is said to have roots in France with an associated name of Gauthier. One family yarn attributes her ancestry to one of the Kig Louis' of france from the wrong side of the blanket. I believe she may have had a brother named Bert.

Have done some work with French families. You will find a various called"dit" In this case Gauthier or Gauther was a dit to Launderville, Londerville, Lunderville. It is really interesting what the French have done with certain surnames.):

Sufronia Laundreville age 17 is listed as living "residence out of limits" in the 1851 survey of Augusta Township, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada.

She was likely the daughter of John (Jean Baptiste) Launderville and Christina Sophy - buried in Throoptown Cemetery, Augusta/Grenville.

Christina had brothers Cyrille and Stephen and I have some information about them.

Thank you! This could be a possibility. I will have to dig deeper when I get a chance.

I found a Tennis Lunderville in the 1850 US Census for Goffstown, Hillsborough, NH and he has a daughter Sophia who is the right age for my Sophia. So this Tennis may be yours also, and when I looked at the original census image, it looked like it could be Launderville very easily. The family listed was:
Tennis, age 50
Lusette, age 40
Sophia, age 20
John, age 18
Ruel, age 12
Mary, age 8
Gracilla, age 6
and Philemon, age 3
Sorry I did not find an Abraham in this family, but it is possible she had another child or it is a second name for one of the boys???? I could not find this family in 1860 census, but my time at the library was short. They could've been in VT. What information do you have on the Laundervilles???? Is one of them a doctor?

My Sophia married Joseph Messier/Messer, and they ended up in Northfield, VT by 1870. So it is entirely possible.
