"The French Italian Vizinat Family" by Joyce Fusilier Fontenot.

"The Vesinas were said to be soldiers who fought for the protection of the Pope and were honored with a crest or Coat-of-Arms. The family is said to have migrated to France through the Appenine Mountains in Northern Italy, just across the French border, and thence to Canada, where the family was traced for several generations in the 1600.

"The progenitor of the Vesina family was Jacques Vesiat, originally shown as Voisina Voisin or Voisinat in France. Jacques was born ca. 1609 in St. Romain de Benet, Aunis, France. In or about 1641, he married at La Rochelle, Aunis, France Marie Bourdon, daughter of Jean Bourdon and Marie Bardin of St. Rogatie, France. He died 31 December 1687 at the ageof of 72 at L'Ange Gardien, Canada."

The author traces the family through several generations.

Paul Louis Eugene Guillaumin
A Legendary Family ...

Paul Louis Eugene Guillaumin was born just outside the Paris basin, on the Eure et Loir (Loire River) in Bonneval, France, in 1814. He received a good Parisian education and was a member of a well-to-do-family...

Paul Guillaumin arrived in Perry Co., Tenn on 01 May 1847 ... On 24 Jan 1850 Paul appeared before the court of the Hon. Elijah Walker of Perry County, swore his oath of Allegiance to the United States and became an American citizen... He was soon summoned to Ville Platte by Marcelin Garand and Joel Sandoz ... Though exempt from service in the Confederate States Army, he joined Colonel J. M. Thompson's 2nd Louisiana Calvary as a first Lieutenant under Captain McDavit... Paul was ambushed and killed by the Jay Hawkers ... (This story about Paul Louis Eugene Guillaumin was compiled in 1962 by Betty Lafleur of Duralde, La., and submitted by Jimmy Lafleur, son of Rose Guillaumin Lafleur.)
