The Gelineau Family
The Gelineau Family
Marie Gelineau Dit Daniel was
a descendant of Elie Juiellineau, or 'Elie the Jew'. Little is known
about Elie, except that he was born around 1530 and is noted in the
Biblioteque de Saintes as being called Juiellineau or Jullineau to indicate
his non-Christian status in France. His son, Olivier (born abt. 1558) adopted
the last name Juiellineau and married Louyse Roger. He was a literate
man who could read and write and a member of the bourgeois class. He
owned three properties: a water mill at Courpignac, France; a windmill at
Guichardiere, France, in the parish of Thenac; and a mill on the river Seugne
at Roisne )Roanne), near the mill at Courpignac. Olivier died at age 80
and he and Louyse were buried in the cemetery at Coupignac near the church at
were Joseph Gelineau Dit Daniel and MarieDesanges Bouteiller. They were
married on October 18, 1802 in Chambly, Quebec, Canada. They had both been
married previously; Joseph to Marie Angelique Monty; and MarieDesanges to Joseph
MarieDesanges had two children:
*Marie Madeleine, who was born July 31, 1803 in Longueuil, Chambly, Quebec, and
married Jean Marie Bessette on November 27, 1821 at St.
Joseph's Catholic Church in Chambly, Quebec. She died on January 06, 1894
in Plattsburgh, Clinton County, NY and was buried on January 08, 1894 in the St.
Peter's Catholic Church in Plattsburgh, NY.
*Julie, born January 20, 1805 in Chambly, Quebec and married Alex Guertin on
October 20, 1825 at St. Joseph's Church in Chambly, Quebec.
Joseph Gelineau dit Daniel died sometime before April 1807, and Marie's mother
MarieDesanges, married again to Jean
Baptiste Devoyau on April 6, 1807.
Gelineaus' Dit name of
Daniel came from Marie's great grandfather Daniel Gelineau, and was passed
down through his son Joseph, and through Joseph's son, Joseph.
Joseph's daughter, Marie, is shown as using the name Daniel in her children's
marriage records, but in the census' of Clinton County, she is listed as
Gelineau. She is also listed as Gelineau on her own marriage record, and
the baptismal records of her children. Her burial record lists her as
Marie Bessette Daniel Gelineau.
