Lanseigne Family; Gonier/Gaunya Family
Posted by: Lyn Miles (ID *****7966) Date: June 23, 2009 at 18:19:36

I am researching "Indians from Quebec" with the family name Lanseigne (which was anglicized in Vermont to "Lansing") and Gonier.

Joseph Lanseigne was born in Canada and I found a site that said they are "Indian" but which Indian. Joseph's wife has no name in the records which I was told means Indian. Their daughter Marie (anglicized to "Mary Lansing" in the VT records) marries the son of Joseph Gonier also of Canada and they go first to Chazy, NY and then to Addison, VT. Then "Gonier" becomes "Gaunya" in the records.

Any Wananaki/Abenaki, Mohawk or other connection with these names?

Thanks, Lyn
