Steve asked the question "did this family line originate in Louisiana or Montreal or did they come straight from France?"  As far as I can tell I only show Matilada Ann Boudinier Steve Jr's 3rd great-grandmother was born in IL November 22, 1859, but I do show that her father Joseph Boudinier was born in 1829 in France.  I don't have a name for her mother or further back, yet.
