Pour les lecteurs anglophones
Finding that your ancestor was part of Quebec’s history might be somewhat a revelation.
Jean-Baptiste Gemme dit Bellegarde was General Montcalm’s aide de camp. He was there when Montcalm died.
There is a a legend about a watch Montcalm had gave to his aide de camp. I found it on the Internet.
Jean-Baptiste Gemme dit Bellegarde was the ancestor of Thomas Gemme or Jamme whom I found on Find a Grave.
Thomas is the first person to settle in Roberval, Quebec. Some of his descendants emigrated to the United States.
One was Thomas Jam.
In homage to Thomas, I did this colorised version.
Thomas Jam can also be found on Find a Grave along with his wife Justine Lizotte.
