RE: Anyone heard of St-François-Bacedu, Felure P.L.?
- Thanks Peter. The family were definitely French from North America. It is the birth place that is shown as Felure so I don't think it would be Fellure Cemetery but I will check out Ohio to see if there is a church of that name.Hmm never thought of Poland but I think that is a long shot.Thanks for the suggestions.Xenia-----Original Message-----At 08:46 AM 5/16/03, you wrote:

Thanks for the suggestion Vicki. I had thought of that but there is still no St-François-Bacedu and/or Felure in Quebec that I can find in current or old maps.
Just some ideas.........
There is a Fellure Cemetery in Ohio. In Gallia County, just north of the Wayne forest reserve.
What if P.L. stands for Poland, and you translate the names to Polish?
I had also thought what if it is P.E.I. but that it doesn't look like that
is what it is.
Felure means crack or flaw in French and it is possible it should be
St-François-Baie-du-Felure. There is a St-François-Xavier de Baie-St-Paul
and a Baie St-François but it doesn't look like that is what it is but if
all else fails I will start looking for the people there.
My other choice Baie-du-Febvre but there is no St-François church there. The parish church is St-Antoine-de-Padoue but it doesn't look like that is what is written!
Merci et à bientôt, Xenia
