Hello Eddy!

I am so excited, I just got off the phone with my father and I think we really maybe related. I never knew much about that side because my grand parents divorced early and most of my cousins were a lot older so it's nice to be able to meet (electronically) some family that I don't think I would ever meet otherwise.

So here is what I found out:

My paternal granfather's name was Renaud Lamothe who was the son of Phillip Lamothe. Phillip had 3 brothers, one of them named Daniel Lamothe, that had a 3 daughters one named Judith, that moved to Africa with her husband which I believe is or was a doctor (not sure about this). I think his name was Posey (spelling?). I believe Judith also had a brother named Etzer Lamothe and I think he too was a doctor. My father said the he heard Judith moved back to Haiti. He mentioned the name LaMar...not sure if that is one of Judith's sisters or not. So if this is the same Judith Lamothe, than that means she was my great grand father's niece and my grand father's first cousin.

Now, it doesn't end there. I noticed you also have "Lafond" in your name. Not sure if that is a middle name or a family surname, however, my great grandmother Regina's (whom I was named after) maiden name was Lafond. Her father was a Frenchmen that moved to Haiti by the name of Yogodo Lafond. Regina married my great grand father Phillip Lamothe who was Judith's uncle. Hope I did not lose you.

I will also list below Phillip's children's names just in case any of them ring a bell:

1. Renaud (My grandfather)
2. Malyan (spelling)
3. Jane
4. Anna
5. Ines
6. Andrea
7. Elzar
8. Leon
9. Alexandre
10. Edmond
11. Marc

Phillip was also married to Apha Gouss and Carinette (spelling-- do not have last name for her).

Hope to hear from you soon.
