French term or phrase:de garmeaux brian
i'm not sure how this tern was used i would just like to know what it means
Subject: [ROOTS-L] De Garmeaux that came with Lafayette!
My ancestors also came to America with Lafayette. My g-great grandfather
was Isaac Garmoe. My family has an original obituary of one of his sons
that states that his grandfather came to America with Lafayette and that
the name was De Garmeaux
There several spellings of the name that I have found. These include GARMO,
GARMOE, GARMORE, GARMOUR, GARMOX. My known ancestor was Garmo most of the
time but I have found him and his sons and daughters by different spellings
of the name.
Message #2 is the second time that I have heard of ancestors coming to
America with Lafayette. I would certainly like to get this puzzle solved.
As the « de » in a family name indicates appartenance to a place, FYI, Germeaux is in the French region of Brittany, in the department of Ile et Vilaine (35) and in the commune of BOURGBARRE. Chances are there is some attractive old property in a hamlet (« lieu-dit ») by the name of Garmeaux.
