    • The Descendants of Paul LaVoy and Elizabeth Reau

      VIII. Paul LaVoy was the eighth known child of Fran‡ois LaVoy and Marie
      Gouin, the founding parents of the LaVoy Family of Monroe County
      Michigan. His brothers and sisters in order of birth were Charles, Mary,
      an ungendered infant, Lambert, Francis, Jr., David, Fabian, and a
      younger sister, Esther LaVoy. From Paul and his brothers spring num-
      erous descendants bearing the name LaVoy in the Monroe, MI and Toledo,
      OH, area.

      A Family Bible, held by Evelyn Mae Stark, Paul's great-granddaughter,
      gives Paul's birthdate as 28 February 1825. St Joseph's Baptism Records,
      Erie, MI, indicate that a child of Fran‡ois LaVoy and Marie Gouin was
      baptized 16 april 1825.(I, pg. 2). As the page is torn, the name and
      birthdate are not available, but this entry is most likely Paul's.

      (Paul's birthdate is also confirmed in the 1880 Road Atlas of Monroe
      County in the Erie Township biography of Paul's son, Dennis LaVoy.)

      Paul married Elizabeth Reau (Roe), perhaps in Monroe, at St. Antoine's,
      where, she she was born 14 July 1824, the daughter of Joseph Reau and
      Th‚rŠse GenviŠve Cousineau. The Monroe County Court House Records, as
      compiled by the Monroe County Historical Society, do not contain a
      record of this marriage, a not unusual event in the early days of the
      Monroe County marriage records.

      Paul LaVoy purchased forty acres from his parents for the princely sum
      of $500, the averqge cost of farms in those days. The farm was located
      in Erie, MI, and most likely a parcel of the original land purchased by\
      his parents in the 1820's. The purchase took place on 22 November 1844
      and Paul paid $500 in cash at the time. As a wife is not mentioned on
      this date as co-purchaser, it is assumed Paul, age 19, was not married
      at the time. The property purchased by Paul is described as follows: the
      NW ¬ of the NW ¬ of Section 28, Township Eight South and Range Eight

      East. (Monroe County Deeds, Liber, Folio 429).

      Paul is also mentioned as an heir to his parents' estate in papers filed
      by his oldest brother, Charles LaVoy, dated 20 September 1852 (Probate
      File #1373). His father, Fran‡ois LaVoy, had died a week before on 13
      September 1852 and his mother, Marie Gouin LaVoy, four days before her
      husband on 9 September 1852, according to these papers.

      By this date several of Paul's siblings are now deceased, the only
      survivors being his older brothers, Charles, Francis, Jr., and Fabian
      LaVoy.

      Paul and his wife, Elizabeth, are found in Erie Township in the 1850
      Federal Census for Monroe County, MI (p.310, dwelling #60) as follows:

      Paul LaVoy, 25, farmer, born in Michigan, real estate valued at $300.
      Elizabeth, age 26, born in Michigan, Danniel, age 2; David, age 2/12.

      Also found in their entry, either as visitor on the day of Census, or
      household help, is a ten year old boy named John Cousineau.



      Paul's 1860 Census entry is also located in Erie Township (pg 212,
      dwelling # 567) as follows:



      Paul LaVoy, age 35, white male, farmer, born in Ohio. No value is
      attached to his personal or real property in this Census. The change of
      his birthplace from Michigan to Ohio no doubt stems from the change in
      the state boundary line. At one time Toledo was part of Michigan. There
      was a celebrated farmer's pitchfork war to resolve the matter. Michigan
      was given the Upper Peninsula as a consolation prize for its loss of
      Toledo to Ohio.

      Also in this entry are Elizabeth, his wife, age 36, Dennis, age 12 (Ob-
      viously the "Danniel" of the 1850 Census); David, age 10, Margaret, age
      7, Elizabeth L. age 3, (all born in Michigan) and two unrelated individ-
      uals, Joseph Belander, age 16, laborer, or farmhand, and Euselica Lav-
      rence, age 15, born in Canada and listed as a "domestic".

      In the 1870 Census, Paul LaVoy is again listed in Erie Township (pg.
      264, dwelling #143) as follows:

      Paul LaVoy, age 42, white male, farmer, born in Ohio, real estate valued
      at $10,000 and personal property at $800. His wife Elizabeth is listed
      as age 42 and keeping house. Dennis is now 21 and still living at home.
      Margaret is age 17 and listed as living at home. Elizabeth F. age 13,
      attending school, Ellen age 16, attending school, Adeline, age 7, at
      home and David, age 4, at home.

      There are some obvious problems with this entry: Ellen, now 16 was not
      mentioned in the 1860 entry. David is listed as 4 in this entry while
      another David is mentioned in the 1850 and 1860 entries who would be
      much older than 4. It is possible that the older David died and another
      child was named David.

      The baptismal records of St. Joseph's, Erie, MI, indicate births and
      baptisms for the following children which suggests Ellen's age may have
      been misstated and that there was another younger David in the family:

      (1) Margaret LaVoy, born and baptized 2 February 1853. (I,163)

      (2) Dominic LaVoy, born 17 May 1855 and baptized 19 May 1855. This child
      must have died before the age of 5 as he is not mentioned in the 1860
      Census. (I, 189)

      (3) Melandy LaVoy, born 19 June 1857, but no baptism date recorded in
      the register (I, 206). This must be the Elizabeth L mentioned as age 3
      in the 1860 Census and Elizabeth F, mentioned as age 13 in the 1870
      Census. The probate file for her father Paul's estate (#1981) indicates
      she died before 20 March 1877, but that she was alive at the time of her
      father's death in 1871, age 17.

      (4) Helena (Ellen) LaVoy, born 14 March 1860 and baptized 15 March 1860
      This must be the Ellen of the 1870 Census with age 16 being a misreading
      of age 10. (III, 22). The probate file (#1981) for her father's estate
      indicates that she died 21 October 1873.

      (5) Adelaide LaVoy, born 4 May 1863, but no date of baptism occurs in
      the entry (III, 41). The probate file for her father's estate indicates
      she was deceased before 20 March 1877, but was age 8 at the time of her
      father's death.

      (6) David LaVoy, born 2 November 1865 and baptized 4 November 1865 (III,
      49-50). This is the David, age 4, of the 1870 Census.

      I was unable to find a record of Dennis LaVoy's or the older David
      LaVoy's baptism at St. Joseph's using the Rheaume indexes. Perhaps they
      were baptized at another Church. Several early LaVoy baptisms in other
      branches have not been found at St. Joseph's suggesting a nearby Church
      in Ohio may have been used also.

      The tender ages of many of the children and the cold weather suggest
      that baptism occuring on the day of birth or a day or two later may have
      occurred in the home rather than the Church.

      Of the eight known children of Paul LaVoy and Elizabeth Reau, Dennis,
      David I, Margaret, Dominic, Elizabeth, Ellen, Adelaide, and David II,
      only three survived to 20 March 1877, according to the probate file
      which was initiated by their mother, Elizabeth on 25 August 1871, about
      two weeks after their father's death of consumption on 6 August 1871.

      The 1880 Census for Erie Township records an entry for Elizabeth, age
      50, with her son David, age 14, who is listed as having attended school
      in the last year.

      Elizabeth Reau (Roe) LaVoy, Paul's wife, died 19 September 1895,
      according to the family Bible.

      Pictures of the couple can be found in the 150th Anniversary Parish
      History of St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Erie, p.43.

      VIII-1 Dennis LaVoy, the first child of Paul LaVoy and Elizabeth Reau,
      was born 1 October 1848 according to both the Family Bible, mentioned
      earlier, and the 1880 Historical Road Atlas for Monroe County
      Biographies for Erie, MI.

      This latter reference states he was born in Erie and that he married on
      1 October 1872, although the County Marriage Records indicate the date
      as 30 September. He married Ellen Cousino, born 17 December 1841 in
      Erie, the daughter of Isadore C. Cousino and Rosella Duval. Dennis'
      occupation was that of a farmer. Dennis died 31 October 1894 according
      to the family Bible.

      Dennis LaVoy and Ellen Cousino's children, according to the 1880 Atlas
      were: Rose A., Paul A., Auston E., and Adaline L. LaVoy. Dennis was also
      the guardian of Dora Tabor.

      The 1880 Census for Dennis LaVoy is found in Erie Township (pg. 370R,
      dwelling #218):

      Dennis LaVoy, farmer, age 31; Ellen, wife, keeping house; Paul, 4;


      Austin, 3; Adaline, 1/12, born previous April; Dora Tabor, age 7,
      servant.

      Dennis died 31 October 1894, according to the family Bible.

      The children of Dennis LaVoy and Ellen Cousino and their families are as
      follows:

      VIII-1-1: Rose A. LaVoy, born 1 November 1873 and died an infant 6 May
      1874. (1880 Monroe County Road Atlas)

      Obituary. MEN, 5-3-58). Paul married twice: (1) to Bernetta Morrin, the
      daughter of David Morrin and Elizabeth Guire. She was 18 at the time of
      her marriage to Paul A. and resided in Erie. Paul was 22. They were
      married on 11 October 1898 at St. Joseph's, Erie, by Fr. Emil Wolfstyn.
      Witnesses to the wedding were sister Ada Lavoy, and Jasper LaPointe.
      (Monroe County Marriage Records, VI, 223, #512). Paul is noted to be a
      farmer in the marriage record.

      Paul married a second time to Anna J. Kessler on 21 January 1920 in\
      Toledo, Ohio. Anna J. Kessler was born 20 February 1889 in Toledo, Ohio,

      Paul was a life long farmer. He was a member of St. Joseph's Church,
      Erie. He lived at 831 Substation Road, Erie, at the time of his death on

      Besides the above children, another son, Lester LaVoy, age 16 died in a
      car accident on 23 August 1937. The details of this accident are

      heart" He had "suffered silently for six weeks" attended to by his
      mother. He was not married at the time of his death. (Obituaries,
      Monroe Record Commercial, 19 July 1906, pg 3, c.l; The Monroe Democrat,

      VIII-1-4: Adaline L. LaVoy, the fourth child of Dennis LaVoy and Ellen

      VIII-3: Margaret LaVoy was the third child of Paul LaVoy and Elizabeth

      He married at the age of 25 on 4 February 1891 to Exaline Dusseau, age
      16, the daughter of Eli Dusseau and Orillia Shinevare (Confirmed by
      family Bible) (The family Bible indicates that Eli Dusseau was born 11
      February 1840 and died 22 December 1929 and that Orillia Shinavere
      Dusseau was born 18 September 1852 and died 12 December 1912.) (Monroe

      had suffered for 10 years. Besides his wife and four children he was
      survived by a sister, Mrs S. W. LaPointe of Monroe. (Death Certificate,
      Monroe County, Liber B, pg 215; Obituaries, The Record Commercial, 6
      April 1905, p.2, c.2; Monroe Democrat, 7 April 1905, p. 7, c. 4)

      Exeline Dusseau LaVoy, the widow of David Paul LaVoy remarried to Dennis
      Duval 30 November 1916. Dennis Duval was born 5 March 1863. (Family

      Duval died 20 July 1966. Dennis Duval died 11 October 1932. (Bible
