Thank you for your post. You confirmed what I had suspected re: Vien/Cummings. I am just beginning to research my Vien connection. Maybe you can help.

Charles Racicot (b. Oct/1819 Quebec, d. 1871 Vermont or IA) married Alesime Vien (aka Eliza Cummings)(b. 1826, Quebec, d. after 1880). Alesime's siblings: Marie, Flavie & Jean Baptiste (dates Unknown)

I know the following about Alesime's parents, father: Bat Vien (aka John Cummings)(b. Quebec, d. Vermont), Mother: Catherine LaBonte (Dates unconfirmed)

I suspect Alesime's parents are: Jean Baptiste Vien (b. 22 Apr 1796, Ste. Mathais, Quebec, d. after 1850), Mother Catherine Vegiard dit Labonte (b. Unknown, d. after 1850).

Do any of Vien names ring a bell? Can you elaborate on the use "dit" in French Canadian names?

Thank you!
Judson Roscoe
