I have listed 150 Baquet families in the USA. Information
about their origin varies :
Some came during the 19th century from Canada via Woonsocket
and are related to Bacquet dit Lamontagne. Others came from Rochefort circa 1660 and would have fled
Acadia in front of the English in 1760.
Some have an ancestor that come directly from France: George H
Baquet in Missouri, Jean-Claude Bacquet de Loos in Illinois, Joseph
Bacqué of Vic-in-Bigorre in Louisiana,
there was also a pirate that had time to create family in Louisiana
before sinking with his ship on the return voyage.
I am very interested by any part of this puzzle which accounts
for hundreds of Baquet's!
If you know the origins of these families or links which exist
between them, do not hesitate to write to me.
