Re: Saintonge/St Onge assoc with Gareau

I have seen the St. Onge name associated with Montreal's very early settlers, in the 1600's. Also, I think as one of early settlers of Detroit. I have seen it spelled as Xaintonge. Sorry to be so vague, but due to computer problems I lost my list of "favorite" web sites, so I'm having to slowly reassemble them. I have been researching an ancestor of my husband's, Nicolas Senet dit Laliberte, who was in Montreal from about 1670-80, so material from that period would be where I would have seen the name. Also, I think a St. Onge may have married a Filles du Roi. If you want me to look further, let me know.
