You are right! Typo on my part. I would love to know more about that side of the family and so would my mother. Here's what I do know:
Bridget and James V. married and had 4 children. The oldest, Mary Frances (1903), was my mother's mother. She went by Frances. She had younger brothers Robert (1908), Charles (1910) and John (1915). I knew my great-uncle Charlie when I was a kid. He lived alone, don't know if he was ever married. He would write my mother long letters full of his medical ailments. I never knew Bob or John, but I do know that Bob was married to Lois B. Holt and we would visit her whenever we were in Indiana. Bob passed away in 1963. John was a tragedy. As a teenager he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and was hospi9talized for the rest of his life. He died in 1975 at the age of 60.
My grandmother met my grandfather when he was in medical school. His roommate, Martin Strange, took him to his hometown, Loogootee, IN and introduced them one summer during their school break. Frances and Martin knew each other because they had played in a dance band together.
When my grandfather, Lynn L'Ecuyer finished medical school they married and moved back to Kansas where he was from. The small town of Greenleaf offered to buy them a home if he would set up his practice there. That is where my mother (Sharon L'Ecuyer) was raised. She moved to Kansas City to go to nursing school and met my father (James Biersmith)there. They remained in Kansas City and raised me and my 4 siblings there.
I currently live in Houston. I would really enjoy filling in more holes of our family history. My cousin spent a few months traveling around the US and Canada tracing both sides of my mother's family, but found more information about the L'Ecuyers - I think because there were still several living from the older generations.
