MONDOUX pioneers in North Plantagenet
also THIBEAULT / THIBAULT

January 26, 2006:
During the period from about 1850 to 1900 the people of Quebec were on the move.
More than one million persons left the province and emigrated to New England in 
the USA, to the Canadian and American west and to Ontario.

A major migration from Quebec led settlers to Prescott County, between 
L'Orignal and Plantagenet. In 1854, the seigneurial system was disbanded in Quebec
(the seigneuries had become over-populated and were debt-ridden). Many Francophone 
farmers from the Montreal area came to Prescott County.

The Mondoux family settled in the Curran, Ontario area.

An article regarding Quebecers' migration to Prescott County is Boom and Bust:
The Demography and Economy of the Lower Ottawa Valley in the Nineteenth Century,
by Chad Gaffield (White Binder #3). (Link to this article on our Microhistory web page)

Other French-Canadian villages in the Curran area are St. Isidore and Fournier.

Hi Al,
 
I am looking for Francois Mondoux and Marguerite Portelance in Curran, Ontario.  
They had several children, some died in childbirth and guess they were married around 
1850.  Francois died in 1870 at the age of 56 and was buried in Curran.  Have you 
come across these names?   Thanks for any help,
 
Richard Philion

If and when new information comes about I have a connection way back. We could be related distantly. Catherine Marguerite Mondoux married Francois Thomas Dit Tranchemontagne on 13 May 1734 in Immaculate Conception Trois Riveres Quebec Catherine was the Daughter of Aubin Mondou and Madeleine Provencher. My own Thomas line ended up in Rockland Ontario previous from St. Andre De Avellin and Montebello. I haven't found a date when they moved to Ontario though can't find them in 1881 Census. Cheryl Thomas
New March 21, 2006: Al: I have been searching for the Mondoux family. The family moved from Yamaska, Quebec to the Curran Ontario area. I am interested in this area (i.e. Curran, Russell, Rockland and in Quebec Montebello & Thurso it appears the family spread through the countryside. My father was born in Montebello. Any information would be most helpful and as well I would share information with other interested parties. Regards Pete Mondoux
