Lamotte Family/OH & IL
Posted by: Michele LaMotte Valkenaar Date: June 19, 1998 at 13:26:13

I am looking for descendants of Charles & Josephine Laclere Lamotte. They emigrated to the U.S. from Lorraine, France (possibly by way of Canada), entering
the U.S. in 1853 (married in 1852). Their first three children were born in Ohio. They were Mary (b. 1855), married Joseph Kaufman, 1875; Alfred (b. 1857), my grandfather; Elix (b. 1859), m. Mary ?? ca. 1883; Mathilda (b. ca. 1867), m. Charles Litzelmann, and Charles (Jr.), b. 1869, m. Mary Emily Litzelmann ca. 1891.

Charles & Josephine Lamotte moved from Ohio to Jasper Co., IL between 1860 and 1867. They lived the remainder of their lives
near Newton, IL and are buried in the St. Thomas Catholic church cemetery there.

This family and those of Elix and Charles are found in the 1870, 1880 and 1900 censuses for Jasper Co. I also have
a copy of the newspaper obituaries for Charles & Josephine.

Are there any descendants of these people out there?
