Je recherche la trace de mes aïeux partis de FRANCE par le port du HAVRE
le 13 août 1852 sur le bateau ISAAC BELL de la LIVIGTON AND Co, arrivés à NEW-YORK ( Pré-CASTLE GARDEN ) le 15 Septembre 1852. Ils avaient comme numéro de Destination: 7328 ?..Sur la liste du bateau le last name était écrit ( RAUX )alors que c’était:ROY Jean,Frédéric,Georges néle 10/03/1819 à AIBRE( FRANCE ) son épouse DEBRIE Louise,Catherine née le 22/01/1825 à SAINT JULIEN LES MONTBELIARD( FRANCE ). Leur fille(child)Clémence, Louise ROY née le 11/04/1847 à AIBRE ( FRANCE),ils ont eu encore aux ETATS UNIS 2 enfants ( des garçons-boy ).Peut-être le couple ROY/DEBRIE serait décédé en FLORIDE suite à une grande attaque INDIENNE!…Mais je n’ai pas de dates.Je suis un descendant de la soeur de Clémence qui était restée en FRANCE chez une Tante,mon arrière Grand-mère Catherine ROY née en novembre 1858 à AIBRE.C’était des grandes familles de religion PROTESTANTES du Comté de MONTBELIARD
( DOUBS ) FRANCE. MERCI de m’aider!
