Re: List of families I知 researching



Arceneaux1

Hi John:


Based on What I have observed, all Arceneaux
in North America descend from Pierre Arceneaux.
My family on my maternal grandfather's side have documented Arceneaux ancestors
that link to Pierre Arceneaux. You could possibly be a distant cousin
to me and my siblings. There are numerous Acadian/Cajun web sites
that trace ancestry back to the 1600s. I have found distant African
American Breax cousins via some of these web sites and the cousins' web
sites.

My maternal grandfather was Adolph Melancon who was born in St. James
Parish around 1859. He descends from Heloise
Arceneaux
via his father, Florentin Melancon. You will not find
my grandfather documented on the linked pages perhaps because his mother
was a slave and Florentin was married and was the overseer of his mother's
farm.

We have a family web site that shows a lot of referenced materials.
It is not formally organized in a genealogical sense.

What is the name of the earliest Arceneaux ancestor you have identified?
