I am a triple Boisseau descendant from the Rev. James Boisseau and his wife, Sarah Holmes. The Rev. James' son, Capt. James married to Mary Holt and I am descended twice from that couple's son, James III and once from their son, John. From two of James III and his wife, Anner Fitzpatrick's children as follows: Their son Benjamin Boisseau 1769-1845 who married Mary Epes and their daughter, Thyrza Holt Boisseau 1797-1827 who married Lemuel Holt Vaughan 1794-1826, Thyrza and Lemuel were my 4th great-grandparents. Also, James III and Anner's daughter, Susanna Boisseau 1777-1847 who married Benjamin Hatcher and their daughter, Martha A. Hatcher 1801-1874 who married to Richard Archer. Martha and Richard's daughter, Delia Susan Archer 1825-1865 married to Thyrza and Lemuel's son James B. Vaughan 1823-1868, in 1845. Now, John Boisseau and his wife, Martha Goodwyn had a daughter named, Mary Goodwyn Boisseau b. about 1770-d.1799, and she married Peter Vaughan b.about 1750-d.1816, their son Lemuel Holt Vaughan is mentioned above. It goes around in circles doesn't it? If you are researching any of these people please e-mail me! Thank you!
Irene is also descended from Rev. James' son, Capt. James and his wife, Mary Holt, through their son, Benjamin Boisseau 1753-1819/20 who married to Amey who died in 1807. One of Benjamin and Amey's sons was, Benjamin Peterson Boisseau 1787-1862 who married Temperance, their son, Robert Goodwyn Boisseau 1814-1868 married to Martha Eppes Hardaway 1815-?, their son, Thomas H. Boisseau 1836-1916 married Lavinia E. Stell 1839-bef.1900, they had a son, Trueman Garnett Boisseau, born 1870, who married Maria Theresa Healy and they are Irene's grandparents. If you have any of these lines in common with Irene, please e-mail her. Thank you!
Lee is also a triple Boisseau descendant. He is descended from two of Capt. James and Mary Holt's sons. From James and Mary's son, Benjamin Boisseau 1753-1819/20 and his wife, Amey, Lee is descended twice. First, from Benjamin and Amey's son, Joseph Boisseau 1775-1816 and his wife, Mildred S. Coleman born 1780, their son, Joseph Williamson Boisseau 1800-1867 and his wife, Julia A. Rives, through their son, Joseph Boisseau 1829-1905. Second, from Benjamin and Amey's son, James Holt Boisseau, born 1791, and his wife, Martha P. Vaughan, through their son, James Poythress Boisseau 1818-1892 and his wife, Elizabeth Ann Scott 1823-1890, through their daughter, Josephine E. Boisseau 1843-1906. Now, Joseph Boisseau, son of Joseph Williamson Boisseau and Julia Rives mentioned above and Josephine E. Boisseau mentioned above were married and they were Lee's 2nd great-grandparents. Also, Martha P. Vaughan mentioned above is another Boisseau connection for Lee leading back to John Boisseau, son of Capt. James and Mary. John Boisseau married Martha Goodwyn (see Beth's line above), and their daughter, Mary Goodwyn Boisseau married to Peter Vaughan, Martha P. Vaughan was one of their daughters. If you are connected to any of Lee's Boisseau lines please send him an e-mail. Thank you!

I am searching for a connection between a William Boisseau and The
Rev. James Boisseau. This William was married to a Sarah Walker, maybe in
the late 1860's. They lived for a long time anyway in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. They had a son named, Edward Holmes Boisseau whom I am descended from. Any information would be helpful. "
Below is the info Larry Boisseau sent for me to place on this page several years ago. Larry was lost in the tragedy of Sept. 11th, 2001. he was last seen in WTC 1. I thought I should leave this as a tribute to Larry. I had been helping him over a year with his Boisseau side of the family and I shall continue to do so. I am still working on connecting his William Boisseau of Petersburg, Virginia to the Rev. James, I am sure they are indeed connected. Larry saved many children and adults that awful day. He is a true hero.
Update> June 24, 2002: Recently I have come to believe along with another cousin, Andy Boisseau that Larry's 2nd great-grandfather William Boisseau may be a son of John E. Boisseau and his wife, Emily C. Boisseau of Dinwiddie County, Va. We need more proof first but they seem to be the only logical parents.
