JEAN HOUYMET: THE FIRST IN LINE

Ancestor Jean Houymet was a native of Vrigny, which Mr. Hollister, in "La France Des Canadiens", describes as "a small village of 180 inhabitants, located three miles to the southwest of Rheims" in Champagne.

Indeed, on his marriage contract with Renee Gagnon, signed on Sunday, October 3, 1660, in the presence of Claude Aubert, "the notary public and clerk of the segniory of Beaupre", we find the following:

Present, in their persons, were on the one hand, Jean Houymet, son and heir of Nicollas Houymet and Poucette Nicayse, his Father and Mother from the parish of Vrigny, archdiocese of Rheims; and on the other hand, Renee Gagnon, daughter of Jean Gagnon and Marguerite Cauchon, her Father and Mother, inhabitants of this seigniory.

As for the church record of the wedding this document has not been found. It is important to note, however, that before 1661, missionaries were the ones who kept the records at Notre-Dame in Quebec, and who served the areas of Chateau-Richer and Beaupre. Would they have forgotten to register the marriage? This is entirely likely, given that the notarized marriage contract states:

The marriage will be done and accomplished, God willing, in the sight of Our Mother the Holy Apostolic, Catholic and Roman Catholic Church as soon as possible.

Jean Houymet was born in 1634, since he was fifty-three years old when he died on November 18, 1687, in the parish of Sainte-Famille on the Ile d' Orleans, where he was buried. His wife, Renee Gagnon, was born in the region and was baptized on April 8, 1643, in the Notre-Dame parish of Quebec. We have no information concerning her death, except for the fact that it occurred after she made a donation to Quebec's General Hospital on April 13, 1695, and before the first marriage of her first son Jean to Marie on November 22, 1702, the record of which states that Renee was dead.

Our ancestor's presence in New France can be traced, at the earliest, to Saturday, November 8, 1659, when he, Guillaume Thibault and Marie-Magdeleine Lefrancois signed a contract, in the presence of Notary-public Claude Aubert, for the purchase of some land.

This land, which measures:

two acres on the great Saint Lawrence River, and which cuts through the above mentioned Beaupre near the above-mentioned Stream, the Sault de la Puce River,

is part of the parish of Chateau-Richer, whose registry opened in 1661. On a trip to Quebec in the summer of 1973, I located this land, which is situated six acres east of the bridge over the Sault de la Puce River; it is lot 82.

In this same contract, it is written, among other things, that on the preceding day, Friday, November 7, 1659, in the presence of the same notary-public, Jean Houymet signed a farming lease with Guillaume Thibault. This document has not been found.

There is also no document certifying Jean Houymet's exact arrival date in New France. It seems likely, however, that he arrived in 1659. This is the opinion of Mr. J-Roland Auger, genealogist emeritus in charge of the National Archives in Quebec, who wrote to me on February 3, 1965:

That your ancestor should have arrived here in 1659 is entirely possible, for the first Canadian contract that mentions him dates from November 8, 1659 (Clerk Auber). As you know, he would have come on the ship Abraham's Sacrifice (Le Sacrifice d'Abraham), which was carrying 300 casks (Clerk Charbonnier, March 14, 1659), and which arrived here in 1659. The ship's list of passengers has been lost. The only other vessel that came to Quebec that year was the "Saint Andre", which was also carrying 300 casks, and was reserved for Montreal recruits, whose history was written by Father Archange Godbout.

There is thus no mistake about the name of the ship, unless, of course, we should find a mention of Jean Ouimet dating before 1659. This data comes from the masterful study done by Mr. Delafosse, archivist fo the Charente-Maritime at La Rochelle, entitled "La Rochelle and Canada in the 17th Century" (La Rochelle et le Canada au 17e siecle), which appeared in "La Revue d'Historire de L'Amerique Francaise", Volume IV, pp 469-511 (page 494).

Having left Dieppe on March 14, 1659, "Abraham's Sacrifice" arrived in Quebec on Monday, June 6, 1659, and we even know the exact time of his arrival, since Monsignor de Laval was aboard the ship,a nd since the Jesuits relate his arrival in the "Jesuit's Journal".

At six o'clock in the evening that same day, the first vessel to give us a biship - along with Mr. Charni, Father Lallement and two priests - arrived in Quebec from France.

Jean Houymet was confirmed by Monsignor de Lavel at Chateau-Richer on Monday, February 2, 1660, the day of the Lord's Purification. On the same day, his future wife, Renee Gagnon, and his future parents-in-law, Jean Gagnon and Marguerite Cauchon, were also confirmed - as was Guillaume Thibault, from whom Jean Houymet had purchased land on November 8, 1659.

In 1662, Jean HOuymet bought some land from Mr. de Lauzon, lord of Charny, measuring two acres along the Saint Lawrence River "on the northern passage, on the date of the tenth day of April one thousand six hundred sixty-two". This contract, which went before notary-public Vachon, has not been found, but it is mentioned in the inventory of Jean Houymet's possessions, which went before the same notary on October 26, 1688, one year after his death. The missing contract is also mentioned in his wife's inventory, which went before notary-public Jacob on March 3, 1695. The phrase "on the northern passage" which we find in these two inventories tells us that the land in question was located on the Ile d'Orleans, on the north side.

On October 2, 1662, in the presence of notary-public Aubert, he bought a lot from Marin Nourice: located

"in the seigniory of Beaupre" and consisting of "two acres along the Great Saint Lawrence River, and extending in one direction to this Great River, and in the other direction to lands owned on one side by Francois Modet, and on the other side by Robert de Laberge".

Sir Villeneuve's map from 1689 locates this three-acre, water-front property at number 19 in the Saint-Famille parish. On this map, the name "Jean Hueau" appears instead of "Jean Houymet". Nevertheless, if we consult Leon Roy's book, "the Lands of the Ile d' Orleans: 1650-1725 (Les Terres de I'lle d''Orleans: 1650-1725), we find that this property was in fact owned by our ancestor Jean Houymet, and that its current survey forms part of lots 187 and 189. When I located the property in 1972, it was inhabited by the Turcot Family, whose ancestor Francois had married Marguerite Ouimet, our ancestor's daughter. He bought the land from his Mother-in-Law in September 26, 1695, and the Turcots have lived thate ever since.

If Jean Houymet bought this land (marked number 51 in "The Lands of Ile d'Orleans, in January 1663, he was certainly living there in 1664. When Pierre Pailleau bought lot number 51 and bought his countract to purchase before notary-public Vachon on February 8, 1664, his neighbors were, the records tell us, Jean Houymet on one side, and Barthelemy Tession on the other. I wonder if part of this lot was not to two water-front acres "on the northern passage" which he bought from Mr. de Lauzon on April 10, 1662, and for which the contract has subsequently been lost.

Jean Houymet and Renee Gagnon had nine children - of which three sons and one daughter got married and produced descendants.

In terms of Jean Houymet's weealth, we can estimate it by examining the inventory of his possessions, which went before notary-public Vachon on October 26, 1688, slightly less than a year after his death on November 18, 1687. This document reveals that Jean Houymet was relatively prosperous for his time:

One trammel, two pots, one grill, two medium-sized cauldrons, one rifle, one mean chest, one old sifter or scieve, ten planters, the clothing of the deceased, two old coffers of which one has lock and key, one cannot be locked, two old tablecloths made of coarse fabric, two animal-skin covers, two old axes, two old hoes, one old hook, a pair of wheels, a cart with an old wheel, colter, and metal chain.

In the barn,

eight hundred sheafs of wheat of which about one hundred and fifty have sprouted and are worthless, and one hundred and fifty minots have been ground and so improved, twenty-two minots of peas, eighty minots of oats, five hundred minots of hay, two old nets.

Next, the buildings:

the skeleton of a house covered with planks; a little old house built from scrap material, in which they live and which is of little value; a barn made of planks and covered with straw and with an adjoining stable;

Next, the livestock:

a pair of work oxen, a young pair of steer four years of age, one young steer about to turn three, four milk cows, three new calves, seven large pigs, six nursing pigs, eighteen turkeys, eight geese;

Next, the concession consisting of three acres of waterfront property on the Saint Lawrence River, for five pounds of wood;

Next, the titles and papers:

the marriage contract between the deceased Jean Houymet and Marie-Renee; two contracts of concession, one of which was made by Mr. de Lauzon, Lord of Charny, of two acres of water-front land on the Saint Lawrence River on the northern passage on the date of the tenth day of April one thousand six hundred sixty-two, and the other made by Monsignor de Laval for three acres of the above-mentioned Concession on the above-mentioned river, which contract went before the notary-public on the date of the twenty-sixth day of January one thousand six hundred sixty-eight. As for active debts, the Community owes four minots of grain to Mister Jean Primont.

Jean Houymet, native of Vrigny, in the Champagne region of France, did a proud service to our people by coming, in the seventeenth century, to found a family in New France.

THE HISTORY OF THE FAMILY NAME OUIMET

Written by Denis Ouimet (3)

Source: Le Houymet - Vol. 1 No. 2

During the century, the family name Ouimet has been written in different ways for several reasons: variations in pronunciations, the illiteracy of our ancestors, the changes made by people who wrote the name, and simply the evolution of the name.

According to the Dictionary of Family Names and First Names of France, the name "Ouimet" was taken from the "d'Olmet" which is a "community of Puy-de-Dome, district of Thiers. The word is composed of Oui and of Met, which is part of a wine press where the wine flows and part of chimney, hand barrow, kneeding trough, bin hopper". This community is located approximately 400 km south of Vrigny, which is presumed to be the original location of our ancestor. Could it therefore be that the family name Ouimet had its origin in the name of the community of d'Olmet? This is a possibility.

The marriage contract between Jean Houymet and Renee Gagnon, of October 3, 1660 (Claude Aubert, Notary), indicates that the ancestor Ouimet originates in Vrigny in Champagne. This is proof positive of the original location of the ancestor, that is , before he undertook the long voyage to New France.

In contrast, the information given by an American in Florida indicates the Jean Houymet was born on November 19, 1634 in the parish of St. Fanville (in France?). Unfortunately at press time we have not been able to obtain additional information to confirm or refute this hypothesis.

According to Mr. Jean-Paul Denise, President of the Genealogical Center of Champagne (Marne), the family name Ouimet does not exist anymore in that area of France. He emphasizes that this family name strangely resembles the name "Vuimet" and "Wuimet" and, by extension "Vuillemet" and "Wuillement" which are derived from "Guillaume" and, those family names are of Germanic origin. In 1989, a total of 157 fiches of baptisms, marriages, and burials of those family names were copied from a collection during a trip to France and more precisely in the Archives de la Marne and of the region of Champagne-Ardenne which is located in Chalons-sur-Marne. These records of family names cover a time period from 1675 to 1922 with 97% of the records of the 15th and 16th centuries. No connection could be established between our ancestor and those records but the research will continue.

According to Mr. Henri Comte and his pamphlet entitled "History of the Ouimet Family"

"The name Ouimet comes from a Germanic combination name, 'Willihelm' which means 'will' (incentive) (Willi) and 'helmet', (soldier's steel helmet). From Willimet one made Wilhelm, Ouilem, Wilhelmy, Wilhelm, Wilhemy, Wilmy, Wilmet, Ouilmet, and Ouimet. Other derivitives are Willem, Williaume, and Willaume and Guillaume, Wilmert, Wilmes, Wilmet and Wilmotte, Willemet, Willaumez and Willemot, William, Williams, and Williamson...

"When the Franks, a Germanic tribe, inhabited Gaul in the 5th cenrury they introduced many German names such as Burchart, Theobald, Baldwin, and Willihelm which eventually became Bouchard, Thibault, Beaudoin, and Ouimet."

In order to support the hypotheses of the different spellings, we can emphasize that phontically "Ouimet" and "Wuillemet" and their variations resemble each other. Although I cannot pretend to be an expert in phonetics, it is still astonishing to note the phonetic similarity of the two names "Ouimet" and "Wuillemet".

Permit me please to state a theory which seems to support the idea that the family name Ouimet is of Germanic origin. Let us suppose that Ouimet resembles Wuillemet which in turn resembles Villemet, could it be possible that the latter name is originally from "ville Metz"! Metz is a town 168 km east of Reims, and also 40 km to the west of the German border. During the 15th century the town of Metz was German territory. This reasoning allows us to corroborate the theory of the Germanic origin of the family name Ouimet.

We hope that this will enable a Ouimet genealogist to highten the understanding of the origin of the family name as well as of the ancestor of all the Ouimets.

THE GREAT CROSSING OF 1659

Source: Le Houymet - Vol 2, no 2

According to the bibliographical dictionary of Canada, Monsignor de Laval arrived at La rochelle on April 13, 1659. We also know that our ancestor Jean Houymet accompanied Monsignor de Laval on this great crossing, sixty-four days aboard the boat called "Abraham's Sacrifice" (Le Sacrifice d'Abraham)

Below are three texts which relate some aspects fo the interminable crossing.

The first one is taken from a text by G.E. Demers entitled "The Vine on the Cape" (LaVigne sur le cap)

On April Sunday 1659, Monsignor de Laval left his country and headed for the immense territories of America, covered with unknown forests, where, in a very harsh climate, lived savage tribes with cruel and babaric customs, and where the most terrible martyrdom imaginable would perhaps put an end to a long life of hard work and sacrifice. But the prospect of the hardships he would have to endure in no way diminished the young bishop's enthusiasm. Rather, in his craving for self-sacrifice, he wished to martyr himself for the love of Christ, as had done a few years earlier a handful of Jesuit missionaries, who fell victim to their stay among savages.

In those days, crossing the ocean was not done with the comfort and luxury witch characterize the cruise ships "veritable floating palaces" of our modern age. Back then, people traveled on small boats, poorly furnished, poorly ventilated, crammed with passengers and even with animals.

It took more than a month for the ship carrying the new bishop to reach Canada. On May 16, 1659, it weighed anchor just off Perce. It is there that Monsignor de Lavel first set foot on Canadian soil. There was a flourishing Jesuit mission there, and the apostolic vicar took advantage of the situation by offering savages and colonists in the area the first acts of his episcopal ministry: He conferred the confirmation sacrament on more that one hundred and forty individuals.

One month later, on Monday, June 16, 1659, Monsignor de Laval arrived in Quebec.

The joy of the people in the little capital of New France knew no bounds when, on the evening of June 16th, they learned of the bishop's arrival with a company of secular priests, a young novice and a Jesuit Father. The following morning, they organized a procession along the docks downtown, where there was a gathering of the reverend Jesuit Fathers, the students of their school, the inhabitants of Quebec and neighboring areas, Governor D'Argenson and the colony's top government officials, and the Monsignor de Laval, who marched along majestically, clothed in his pontifical garments, with a mitre on his head and a cross in his hand. In the middle of the general festivity, the procession ascended to the upper part of town and the apostolic vicar entered the parish church of Quebec, which became the cathedral of his immense vicarage.

The second text comes from Jacques Folch-Ribas' french novel "La chair de Pierre", which came out in 1989. This historical novel brings to life Claude Baillif, master mason, master carpenter master stone-cutter, who came from France to New France in 1675. Baillif had been summoned by the bishop of Quebec to make this isolated township on the savage banks of the Saint Lawrence into a real city. The numerous descriptions from this novel might give us some idea of what was going through our ancestors mind when he crossed the ocean:

"la Saintonge" a boat doubles back along the last cape, the pointy angle of the land which still clings to the depths of the sea, and from which seagulls take off, thickening the strident flock that surrounds the ship. At sea. One or two hours left, but it is certain that on this same day, we will see no more continent, no more island, no more reef. Open water.

Suddenly, they found themselves immersed in the night, and fog.

Why had I left? I pretended to ask myself why. I actually did know why buy I didn't have the heart to answer. I felt queasy and stretched out for my first night of crossing.

After just three days, the passengers, all brothers and sisters, started looking like one another. Ragged, ill, jaundiced, drowsy from the tremendous movement of the ship, whose prow could be seen rising up toward the sky, while everybody rolled to one side, clinging to one another and to the ropes and to the structures, and then, whith the prow crashing back down and delving into the trough of a wave such that water sprayed over the bridge, they all thought they would drown, and rolled all at once to the other side of the ship, and prayed to God and the Virgin. At first, women screamed with fright at the ship's every movement, then they were silent, exhausted, giving their bodies over to divine providence, yielding, discouraged, to that filthy, beastly rapist, the sea.

Under the bridges, friendships were formed between young convent girls and women of ill repute and dissolute morals. Seated or lying down, holding hands, helping one another against the blows from the boom and the casting about of the ship, their skin ashen from seasickness, they offered one another support, the bravest came to the aid of the most tender, they encouraged each other to eat and drink, sharing what they had with their neighbors, consoling each other, and the next day they would be cradled in the arms of women whom they had held the night before.

It was atsea that Claude first heard the "Unlucky Folk's Lament". A young sailor had started to sing. Although he was young, only about twenty, this was the boy's third crossing. He had heard the song in Quebec. He had the voice of a girl:

To Canada, New France

The King has forced us to go

What bad luck we have

Our betrothed we left behind

Our betrothed and our mother in the village

Pain which has stricken us

Departed at this tender age

For savage land and country

Listen to the lament

And take pity on us.

The days passed, as did the nights, which were darker than a thom should be. The sea stretched out in front of them, opening up, and closed in behind them as they went along. The storms, the wind, the rain. A low sky and the further they advanced, the more fog, the more fear. But slowly, among the men, grew friendship and trust.

-I'm a former salt-trader, condemned to exile. A robber, not on highways, but on the roads at night. I ran then all back in the Poitou, with my bags on my shoulders.

-I'm a carpenter, I'm twenty and I'm hungry.

-So is it so very faar, over there? asked another. The odor. The cold. The humidity. The food, which got more spoiled the further they advanced. Mass every morning and two services every Sunday; their one consolation. Ninety-eight days of torture, more than three months at sea, there were three funeral services and numerous sick people whom the sisters cared for as best they could, up in the prow, under a bridge, behind some covers hanging over a line. But on August 15th, for the Assumption, they saw the American land.

On the horizon we saw a low dark line which was the new land. It just barely appeared between two waves, as if it were floating on the water, but no: it was more immobile, it was a rock, or maybe a forest, at long last, the martyrodon of movement was going to end.

-Today? Tomorrow?

-Three days left, said the young sailor who was familiar with the trip. After that, we enter the Gulf. Then we sail for another eighteen days to the great River Saint Lawrence, then to the end of that to Quebec.

A woman whose hope had brought her to the bridge started to cry, exausted. ...We're so close to the forests that you can see them, on the right and on the left. Not the smallest field, not the slightest bit of visible land, it's all wooded, overgrown with a dark green covering shot through with dark masses of pines growing together in clusters.

...The Basque sailor steers the ship into the slack river water, which is widening for the last time at the base of the Diamond Cape cliffs. Sails are coming down amidst the sailors' shouts. The promontory emerges in fornt of the bow, very slowly, majestically, extending its heavy forests and its sun-baked rock formation all the way to the thick, shining water: melted lead. And there, suddenly, finally, grey houses appear, all piled on top of one another, and pointed bell towers. It's the third day of September. After ninety-eight days at sea, we're in Quebec. We're landing.

The third story is taken from Louis-Bernard Robitaille's novel entitled "Maisonneuve" The Governor's Testimony" (Maisonneuve: le Testament du Gouverneur).

PIERRE HOUYMET: ANCESTOR WITH THE GREATEST DESCENDANCE

Pierre is the last and ninth child of Jean Houymet and Renee Gagnon. He was born June 18th, 1683 in the Sainte-Famille parigh on the Isle of Orleans and was baptized the next day. This child was in good health and grew to the great satisfation of his parents. A previous son, named Pierre, had been born on November 3rd, 1681 and had been baptized the next day but died November 16th, 1681. When their lastr son was born, Jean was 49 and Renee 40 years old.

At age 33, Pierre married Marguerite Breault dit Pomminville (19 years old), daughter of Henri and Ursule Bolduc, in the presence of notary Verreau. In this contract we can read amongst other things:

"Completed the morning of January 4th, 1716 in the house of Louis Bolduc."

We cannot find anything about a church marriage, but in the records of the notary Verreau we can read:

"Performed, celebrated and solemnized before our Mother the Holy Church, to be licensed as soon as possible."

According to one guess, Pierre and Marguerite were married at Lauzon and the marriage certificate should bve in the records of the Saint-Joseph de Levis parish. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the records of Levis are missing from December 1715 to November 1716.

The numerous descendants of the sons of Pierre and Margfuerite Brault dit Pomminville propagated as follows: the descendants of Louis, Pierre, Jean-Louis, Francois, and Jean-Cyprien spread out mainly on the north shore of Montreal, on the laurentian piedmont and in the Laurentian mountains whereas the descendants of Ignace and Michel spread out mostly on the south shore of Montreal and in Eastern Townships. Several emigrated to the United States. Today one finds their descendants everywhere in North America.

From the list of baptisms of their children one can follow the progress of Pierre and Marguerite Brault dit Pomminville: first the marriage in Beaupre in 1716 and then the baptism of their first child, Louis, in Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre parish in 1717. From 1721 on, the children were baptized in the Montreal area. Already, on May 31, 1720, Pierre starts to work as a tenant-farmer for Paul Bouchard at Pointe St-Charles. In the record it is written:

"Before the royal notary on the Island of Montreal, in New France, and living in Villemarie, the undersigned Paul Bouchard voyageur living in this city for one part, and Pierre Ouimet, living at Pointe St-Charles, and on site in this city on the other part."

Their second and third child, Marie-Josephe and Pierre were baptized in Notre Dame parish, Montreal in 1721 and 1722 respectively. During that time span, on October 1, 1721 Pierre bought a plot of land at Ile-Jesus (Laval). In that record, one can read:

"A concession of land on Ile-Jesus on the Coste St-Francois of the dimension of four acres lenght and thirty deep starting from one end on the front and two acres at the edge of Riviere des Prairies and on the other part behind a land non-concessed from Pierre LaBelle's land on one side and Chabut's land on the other side."

From 1724 until 1729, five children were baptized in St-Laurent parish. In 1732 and 1734, Jacques and Marie-Josephe were baptized in Riviere des Prairies parish. In 1736 and 1738, Jean-Cyprien and Michel were baptized in La Visitation du Sault-au-Recollet parish. During all these years Pierre and Marguerite lived at Sault-au-Recollet since the church of St-Lauret and the church of Riviere des Prairies were the parish churches for the inhabitants of Sault-au-Recollet before the founding of La Visitation parish in 1736. On October 18, 1723 Pierre and Marguerite hired by the squires of Ile de Montreal to be responsible for the household of the Sulpiciens' order. In the records one can read:

(old French - untranslatable)

According to an unconfirmed assumption, the couple could have joined St-Francoise de Sales parish, Ile-Jesus in 1746. At that time, they were respectively 63 and 49 years old. Pierre and Marguerite were pioneers of the Ouimet family that took root in teh Montreal area, the Eastern Townships and the Laurentides. They were the original architects of the proliferation of members of our great family everywhere in North America. We can be proud of them.

Mitchell arrived in an area called Castorland in Lewis County, New York, (Castorland was apparantly almost a French-Canadian enclave at the time) from near Montreal, Canada, sometime between 1810 and 1825. Mitchell was there on October 1, 1824 (per naturalization papers in Lewis County, NY-under the spelling of Wymit)

He was baptised Jan 28, 1781, Longueuil Can.

(NOTE: BAS Canada is an abbrv. of Lower Canada, which is the area of Montreal, Lower Quebec area.)

When Marie Anne Lagu died and when Mitchell married Catharine is not known at this time. The only record we have of the name of Catharine is when Mitchell and she, as his wife, executed a land deed to Serral Wemot, in Lewis County, New York, in November 1843. Therefore, it is not known which is the mother of Theodore Thaddeus Wemot, who was born in Denmark, Lewis County, NY, 20 November 1826.

Mitchell was found only on the 1830 New York Federal census, where he is listed as Michael Wemot. According to that census, he and his wife would have been born 1790 to 1800. However, we now know that Mitchell was born in 1781 in Longueuil, Lower Canada. he was listed on the New York State Census of 1825 and 1835 by the names of Mitchel Weamot and Michel Wimett, respectively. There apparently was no 1845 New York State census.

He was "through casualty killed in the town of Lowville on the morning of the first day of August 1847", according to Petition of Letters of Administration filed 05 August 1847. As shown by the Petition, he was a resident of Martinsburg at the time of his death and left no widow, but seven children: Serral, Sophia, Christiana, Theodore, Mitchell, Stephen and "Ellis". Therefore, it is assumed that his wife, Catharine, died sometime between late 1843 and August 1847.

Those listed as heirs of Mitchell in the deed filed in December, 1850, for the sale of his land in Denmark were:

Serral Wemot

Mitchell Wemot

Sophia, wife of Moses Estes of Oneida County

Christina, wife of Joseph Barito of Oneida County

Stephen S. Wemot

Theodore T. Wemot

"Alice" Wemot

There is no further record of Mitchell's children, Andre' or Cesarie, who were born in Canada. They were not shown as heirs at the time of his death.

Children of MICHEL OUIMET and MARIE LAGU are:

19. ANDRE6 OUIMET (ADRIEN-ANDRE5, IGNACE4, PIERRE3 OUIMET-GILBERT, JEAN2 OUIMET , (HOUYMET), NICHOLAS1) was born April 1, 1788 in Longueuil, near Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and died March 4, 1861 in Ontario County, New York. He married (1) JOANNA MACUMBER 1817 in Black River Country Lewis County NY, daughter of ENGEL MACUMBER and RACHAEL MACUMBER. He married (2) HANNAH WEST Aft 1820.

Notes

Born Andre Ouimet later became known as Andrew W Wemett when he emigrated to Lewis Co., New York. All his descendents there after took this spelling. (No knowledge at this time, 1/1995, of what the W stands for for the middle name.)

As per Ross B Kenzie's research, spelling of last name is "Ouimet", earlier indications show spelling as "Ouimette"

Elizabeth WeMott writes, "In Lewis County, New York, records Andrew "Wemotte" is shown as "Path Finder" in 1814, and was elected "Path Master" in 1816. Joseph and Andrew moved to Ontario County, New York, where they took the spelling of Wemett, although the name was spelled many different ways on census records. They apparently moved to Ontario County about the time Mitchell arrived in Lewis County. Mitchell, however, remained in Lewis County, NY, buying land in the town of Denmark on December 9, 1829."

Andre (Andrew) left Canada in 1814, and is known to have helped to build a flour mill in Monroe County NY on the present location of the Erie RR Depot.

He came to Canadice in 1814 and it is said he was working on the Henry W. Pulver farm in 1821.

He died on the day Lincoln was inaugurated.

THE WEMETT FAMILY HISTORY: found under Clarence Wemett

The history of family name Ouimet

Translated from "Le Houymet" Vol. 1, No. 2

During the century, the family name Ouimet has been written in different ways for several reasons: variations in pronunciations, the illiteracy of our ancestors, the changes made by people who wrote the name, and simply the evolution of the name.

According to the Dictionary of Family Names and First Names of France, the name "Ouimet" was taken from the word "d' Olmet" which is a community of Puy-de-Dome, district of Thiers. The word is composed of Oui and of Met, which is part of a wine press where the wine flows and part of chimney, hand barrow, kneeding trough, bin hoppers". This community is located approximately 400km south of Vr igny, which is presumed to be the original location of our ancestor. Could it therefore be that the family name Ouimet had its origin in the name of the community of d'Olmet? This is a possibility.

The marriage contract between Jean Houymet and Renee Gagnon, of October 3, 1660 (Claude Aubert, Notary), indicates that the ancestor Ouimet originates in Vr igny in Champagne. This is proof positive of the original location of the ancestor, that is before undertook the long voyage to New France.

In contrast, the information given by an American in Florida indicates the Jean Houymet was born on November 19, 1634 in the parish of St. Fanville (in France?). Unfortunately at press time we have not been able to obtain additional information to confirm or refute this hypothysis.

According to Mr. Jean-Paul Denise, President of the Genealogical Center of Champagne (Marne), the family name Ouimet does not exist any more in that area of France. He emphasizes that this family name strangely resembles the name "Vuimet" and "Wuimet" and, by extension "Vuillemet" and "Wuillemet" which are derived from "Guillaume" and, those family names are of Germanic origin. In 1989, a total of 157 fisches of baptisms, marriages, and burials of those family names were copied from during a trip to France and more precisely in the Archives de la Marne and of the reigion of Champagne-Ardenne which is located in Chalons-sur-Marne. These records of family names cover a time perion from 1675 to 1922 with 97% of the records of the 15th and 16th centuries. No connection could be established between our ancestor and those records but the research will continue.

According to Mr. Henri Comte and his book entitled "History of the Ouimet Family"

"The name Ouimet comes from a Germanic combination name, 'Willihelm' which means 'will' [incentive] (Willi) and 'helmet', (soldier's steel helmet). From Willimet one made Wilhelm, Ouilem, Wilhelmy, Wilhelm, Wilhemy, Wilmy, Wilmet, Ouilmet, and Ouimet. Other derivitives are Willem, Williaume, and Willaume and Guillaume, Wilmert, Wilmes, Wilmet and Wilmotte, Willemet, Willaumez and Willemot, William, Williams and Williamson....

"When the Franks, a Germanic Tribe, inhabited Gaul in the 5th century they introduced many German names such as Burchart, Theobald, Baldwin, and Willihelm which eventurally became Bouchard, Thibault, Beaudoin, and Ouimit."

In order to support the hypotheses of the different spellings, we can emphasize that phonetically "Ouimet" and Wuillemet" and their variations resemble each other. Although I cannot pretend to be an expert in hhonetics, it is still astonishing to note the phonic similarity of the two names "Ouimet" and "Wuillemet".

Permit me please to state a theory which seems to support the idea that the family name Ouimet is of Germanic origin. Let us suppose that ouimet resembles Wuillemet which in turn resembles Villemet, could it be posssible that the latter name is originally from "ville Metz"! Metz is a town 168 km east of Reims, and also 40 km to the west German territory. This reasoning allows us to corroborate the theory of the Germanic origin of the family name Ouimet.

We hope that this will enable a Ouimet genealogist to highten the understanding of the origin of the family name as well as of the ancestor of all the Ouimets.

Denis Ouimett

JEAN HOUYMET, A PIONEER WHO CAME FROM THE REGION OF REIMS

By Robert Prevose

In Quebec the Ouimets are one of the largest family groups. Actually they are located in many areas. In Montreal, Ernest Ouimet inaugurated the Ouimetoscope on January 1, 1906, which was the first movie house in North America. On July 19, 1932, Alphonse Ouimet, who was regarded as the father of television in Canada, presented in the studio of La Presse the first televised shows.

On June 13, 1989, in the United States issued a postage stamp of Francis DeSalles Ouimet, he became famous in 1913 by winning the U. S. Open against two famous British golfers. And how many other Ouimets became well known in law and politics.

Could it be that these people originated from their first ancestor from France. He was originally from Champagne. Jean Houymet was born around 1634 in Vrigny, Arch Diocese of Reims, the son of Nicolas and Perrette Nicayse. Vrigny is a small community of approximately residents, approximately 150 km from Paris. Toward the capital the N3 train, toward the East, Via meaux, Ferte-sous-Jouarrc (65Km). Here the train turns toward the northeast and touches Chateau Thierry (19KM) and stops in Dormans(23 km).

You will notice that one is only about 10 Km. from Reims, who's Catherdral, Notre Dame, masterpiece of gothic architecture, was the spiritual home of the kings of France since the baptism of Clovis (496). Of course the church of Vrigny is much more modern, but the Ouimets might want to visit it since their ancestor entered through its Roman portal in order to be baptised.

THE ARRIVAL OF JEAN HOUYMET

The genealogists presume that Jean Houymet arrived in New France in 1659, since this is the firms year that his name appears in a notary's contract. The Roland-J. Auger estimates that he probably crossed the Atlantic on board the "Sacrifice of Abraham", whose passenger list unfortunately got lost. The only other sailing ship arriving in Quebec that year, "Saint Andre", was rented fro the transfer of intended for Ville-Marie. It was also on board the "Sacrifice of Abraham" that on June 16, 1659, after a voyage of three months, Mgr. Francois de Laval arrived who had bveen named the new apostolic vicar of New France.

The pioneer soon became a resident of the colony. On November 8, of the same year, before the notary Claude Auber, he became owner of a parcel of land of two acres.

Three months later, in Chateau-Richer, he was confirmed by Mgr. de Laval, at the same time as Renee Gagnon, Father and Mother, Jean Gagnon and Marguerite Cauchon, as well as Guillaume Thibault.

On October 3, 1660, Jean Houymet and Renee Gagnon were married before Notary, Auber. Here at Chateau Richer the first two children of the couple were born: Jean in November 1661, and Louis in September 1663.

In the beginning of January 1668, Jean buys three acres of land on the island of Orleans, in the district Lirec. his neighbors were Pierre Paillereau, originally from L'Aunis, and Jean Allaire, a Poitevin. This allotment of land "passes to the North, " that is it borders on the branch of the river which flows between the island and the bank of Beaupre: it is in the future parish of Sainte-Famille, which Mgr. de Laval would build up for the church in 1684. the Abbott Germain Ouimet, the present President of the family association of the Ouimets, has localized the ancestral earth which, to this day, is part of plots 187 and 189.

IN SAINTE-FAMILLE

It was in the parich of Sainte-Famille that the seven other children of the couple Houymet-Gagnon were born: Marguerite (1667), Marie-Madeleine (1672), Gagriel (1675), Jacques (1676), Jeanne (1679), Pierre (1681), and a second Pierre (1683). Unfortunately Gabriel and the first of the two Pierres only lived for several days. Jacques probably did not get married. The three other sons founded households. Louis married Marie-Anne Genest, daughter of Jacques and Catherine Doribeau (1693): fourteen children of which triplets died after several days. Jean chose whose marriage remained without issue, then he married Marie Bissonnet, daughter of Pierre and Marie Dallon and widow of Joseph Forgue: they had on daughter and two sons. The youngest son, Pierre, founded a household with Marguerite Brault aka Pomainville, daughter of Henri and Marie-Ursule Bolduc (1716): twelve children; he is the ancestor of most of the members of the Ouimet family.

5000 MARRIAGES

In effect, eight of those twelve children were sons, and seven of those had a total of 24 sons who founded households. This branch of Ouimets swarmed into the greater regioun of Montreal. In 1724, Pierre was responsible for the household of the Sulpiciens; the lords of the Island. Mr. Yvon Ouimet, President of the Association of the Descendents of Jean Ouimet, has established a detailed list of great grandchildren and whom Pierre gave the ancestor Jean.

This grouping consists now of a repetoire of approximately 5000 marriage contracts of the Ouimets. According to a compilation -- although fragmented -- of 1988, by means of telephone directories, more than 1500 names of Ouimets were located in Canada and in the United States in the major towns, 60% of whom were located in Quebec. Of those, 700 were found in Montreal. The next family reunion will be in Montreal, in the suburb of Maisonneuve, on August 29, 1992.

One could get lost in guessing about the origin of this family name. One cannot find any more Ouimets in Champagne, but Vuillemets, and Wuillmets, etc. can be found. Please note that at the beginning of the last century a certain Antoine Ouilmet, attracted to the Lake Michigan region by the trading of furs, has given the town of Wilmette, a suburb of Chicago, its name.

The President of the Association of the Descendents of Jean ouimet, Inc. is at the present time, Mr. Germain Ouimet, Priest, 3550 Montee Gagnon, Blainville, Quebec 17 E 4H5.

TRANSLATED FROM "LE HOUYMET" (SEPTEMBER 1991)

DID YOU KNOW THAT....

In the census of 1681 in New France, one can read:

Jean Ouymet, 50, Renee Gagnon, his wife, age 22 (however she was 38 years old, since she was born in 1643), children: Jean 18, Louis 16, Marguerite 13, Marie 10, Jacques 5, Jeanee 3, 1 shotgun, 5 hoofed animals, 20 acres of value.

They lived on three acres facing the St. Lawrence River situated southeast of the stream of Fauchet in the Parish of Sainte-Famille, Island of Orleans. The immediate neighbors were Sebastien Doysen called Larose and Lacroix (8 acres of value) a Breton and Mr. Paillereau.

THE NUMEROUS FAMILIES IN NEW FRANCE

When looking at the offspring of our ancestors, especially at the time of the French Colony, one is often amazed at how many children people had. When our ancestor, Jean, arrived in New FRrance, the colony had less than 2500 inhabitants. Immigration and especially high birth rates have been the real factors in the population growth.

The French Government encourages large families since at that time this kind of growth was less difficult than immigration. Jean Talon was sent to implement the colonization plan and therefore encouraged large families. "Since the multiplicaiton of people depende on the frequency of marriages, it is necessary for family fathers to marry off their children as soon as they are able to get married." Special laws and modes of encouragement for the marriage process were therefore promulgated.

Some of these were as follows:

* A boy who married at age twenty or less and a girl at age sixteen or less each received twenty pounds.

* A daughter of the king received fifty pounds on her marriage day.

* A bonus was given upon the marriage of a French and an American Indian.

* Bachelors were obliged to submit to a marriage contract in the fifteen days following the arrival of the daughters of the king.

* A penalty for the parents whose twenty year old sons and sixteen year old daughters were not married, with an explanation required.

* Allocation of three hundren pounds to parents of ten children.

* Allocation of four hundred pounds to parents of twelve children.

* Annual pension accordingly

* Land given as a gift to the father of thirteen children,

* Free deucation in France for the twenty-sixth child of the same family.

At the time of Talon, a migratory wave, combined with the politics of marriage and births, boubles the population in seven years; however it was mainly the hight birth rate which populated the colony.

Baptised Oct 10, 1797.

Mrs. WeMott also writes that Toosa and Louise had several children in Canada. At this time, we do not know when or if he emigrated to the United States.

It is believed that Tousaint Ouimet also went by the name of Toosa Wemott.

As per Thomas Cass - Tousaint's first child was born Oct 27, 1826 and given the name Henriette. He didn't go any further with the search due to the difficulty in reading the film. He also says we don't know if Toussaint came to New York. He notes finding more of Toussaint's children in Rouville would prove his Canadian residence.

Notes

As per Elizabeth A. WeMott's, (3217 North Villa, Oklahoma City, OK 73112, or phone 405-942-6698) research dated 1994:

There is question if Catharine, Michel Ouimet's 2nd wife, may have been the mother of T.T. WeMott.

Theodore T. Wemot was listed as an heir of his father's land but even though he was listed he did not sign the 1850 deed selling the land after his death. He had purchased land September 9, 1853, in Rutland, Jefferson County, NY, and was listed on the deed as Theodore Wemot of Boston, Mass. He deeded it back to the grantor September 8, 1855, so it is not known if he ever lived there. At the time of Theodore's February 18, 1857, marriage to Ellen S. Walker in Northboro, Mass., he was listed as a resident of Westboro, Mass., and occupation was given as "Trader". Unfortunately, the names of the mothers were not given.

The following year, according to an 1883 History of Cass and Bates Counties, Missouri (where his name was misspelled "Wernott"), the couple moved to Dubuque, Iowa, where their first child, Ada Marie, was born in 1859. By 1861, they were in Texas in Bryan (Brazos County) and Salado (Bell County). Four more Children were born in Texas -- Arthur W. in Salado or Bryan, Herbert Smith in Houston (?), Mary Alice, and Claudia.

We were unaware of any Civil War service of Theodore T., but found a published report in a September 1961 Kansas City Genealogist (where his name had been misread S.S. Wemoti), that he had attended a reunion for Civil War veterans in August 1885 in Higginsville, MO. this made it possible to find some new records from the National Archives (recorded as T. T. Wernott), and also a history of Bell County, Texas, where his name was written Theodore T. Wilmott, Bugler. Theodore T. enlisted in Salado, Texas, November 18, 1862, in the Confederate forces - Baylor's Reg't Cav., Capt. R. B. Halley's Co., Mullen's Unorganized Batt'n., Arizona Brigade (later Co. G., Baylor's Regiment, Texas Cav.). This company served an the Arkansas-Louisiana front. It is a mystry how he could have been born and lived in the northern part of the United States and then gone to Texas and become a rebel. he reportedly spoke four or five languages. Of course, French and English - - but the rest, we will never know. From their years of residence in Texas, we could speculate that he also knew Spanish.

On October 6, 1864, ellen S. Wemott purchased Lots 9 through 16 in Block 13 in the town of Salado, Texas. Purchase price was given as $500. After the war, on December 29, 1866, Ellen S. Wemott and T.T. Wemott of Bell County, Texas, sold the same property for $500 and one horse. On July 3, 1868, land in Bates County, Misouri, was deeded to Ellen S. Wemott. The family remained in Bates County, MO, where five more children were born - - Hattie, Bessie, Stella B., Maude D., and Nellie.

Theodore worked both as a farmer and a carpenter, buying land and improving it for sale. At one time, he was involved in a business venture with a Sherwood, in what was referred to as the New York Meat Market, located on the north side of the square, across from the post office in Butler, Missouri. An account was given in the History of Cass and Bates Counties of a 4th of July parade, describing a float entered by Wemott and Sherwood. The location of their business was shown in an ad in an 1880's Butler newspaper. Across from Theodore's 160 acres, was what was known as the Wemott school, a country school which taught eight grades. The school house was removed - (probably sometime in the 1960's.)

On November 13, 1897, they sold their property in Bates County, having apparently moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where Theodore T. Wemott died July 20, 1899. He was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Butler, Bates County, Missouri. Ellen S. Wemott died October 1, 1914, in Denver, Colorado, and was also buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Butler, Missouri.

Notes

FROM AN ARTICAL TITLED THE PASSING OF A WELL-KNOWN MAN

Henry J. Wemett familiarly known as Captain Wemett by scores of his friends, died at his residence in the town of Canadice . He was born in the house where he died, being in his eighty- first year. He was ill but a few days. The immediate cause of death was heart failure. Mr. Wemett received his early education in the public schools and at Genesee Wesleyan seminary at Lima, leaving there in August, 1864, to enlist in the 188th New York Volunteers. In the service he was in ten engagements and became a first lieutenant under Colonel Doolittle. At the close of the war he re-entered the seminary at Lima, from which he was graduated as valedictorian of his class. For some time he studied law in Canadaigua. He later taught school in New York State and Michigan and was for some years school commissioner of Ontario county. He then became interested in the development of Hemlock Lake as a summer resort, where he built and operated several steam boats. When Hemlock Lake was acquired by the city of Rochester as a reservoir he transferred his interests to Conesus Lake, which became a popular resort for Rochesterians. Here he was instrumental in forming the Dewey transportation company, of which he was a shareholder and manager. A great many residents of Rochester and vicinity will remember the steamer McPherson of which Mr. Wemett was captain for several seasons.

Of the two that remain, Correll Wemett is proprietor of the Hilltop Dairy and owner of a large farm in Lima, while Clarence E Wemett is president of C. E.

She greduated from the Sherwood Musical Academy, in Lyons NY 1869. Until recent years she has taught piano and has been the organist in the local Methodist Church, of which she has been an active member.

Mr. Wemett has the distinction of being the oldest man in the community, besides being one of the four surving Civil War veterans in the town of Livonia. He can distinctly recall many of his war experiences that took place after his enlistment in 1864. He took part in nine engagements the most important of which was the battle of Five Forks where 600 Rebel prisoners were taken. Most of his fighting was done under th command of Gereral Gregory, Major Davidson, and Captain John Marks. The latter two coming from Rochester.

Mr Wemett was at the front at the time of the surrender and it was his company that guarded the arms that the Confederate Soldiers piled up as they filed past and surrendered their weapons. He recalls the kindness shown by General Grant in allowing the rebel soldiers to keep their horses and side arms.
