section is used to identify the many questions, inconsistencies, disagreements
and mysteries that we have encountered in our research of the Theriault
genealogy. These are the issues that we tend to concentrate on in our research.
Our hope is that you may have some information, or a different point of
view that can resolve these mysteries...
My line is the J. Terriot born of the first marriage (1746 ) of Jean Joseph Terriot to Angelique Landry. He was the first Terriot to go to St Basile NB.
From Northern Maine, the Three Theriault Brothers... We've received an inquiry from Dave Thireault (no, this is not a spelling error, just another variation of our last name) of Minnesota. His grandfather Denis Theriault was born in 1889 in Huot, Minnesota, a small french community near Red Lake Falls, in northwestern Minnesota. His great-grandfather, also named Denis and his two brothers, Isaac and Zephier came from Maine via Canada into northern Minnesota in the early 1890's. The three brothers followed the logging industry. Great-grandfather Denis and his brother Zephier were married to sisters from the Charles Guimont family. Denis married Matilda Guimont. Matilda had a brother George and a sister Ida. The three Theriault brothers and their wives moved into northern Minnesota in the early 1890's when the area was open for homesteading. Dave explains that his grandmother switched the 'i' and 'e' around in their last name to keep their mail from getting mixed up with another family of Theriault's closeby. Before that, the name had the more common spelling. Dave's grandfather Denis married Nina Costello whose father was Irish and mother was Swedish. The Costello's homesteaded in Saint Anthony, Minnesota, a part of present-day Minneapolis.
For those of you who have access to source data of the northern Maine and New Brunswick parishes, please keep Denis Theriault (born in 1889) and his wife Nina Costello in mind; as well as Denis' father, Denis Theriault and his wife Matilda Guimont. We are looking for the connection back into the Theriault family for this lumberjack family.
The Twin Brothers from Caribou, Maine... Lynda Theriault (who lives in Maine) is asking whether we have any information on her Theriault lineage. Her grandfather's/"pépére's" name was Hector who had a twin brother named Oscar. The twin brothers' father was Nomi Theriault who was married to Elise Blis?. They lived in the Caribou, Maine area. She has no birth, marriage or deceased dates. Her father is Sheldon Theriault living in Maine.
