10 Charles II reigned from 1649 to 1685. In 1684, before the death of Charles II, his brother James II stole the records of Charles marriage and certificates of the births of his children. He had James, Duke of Monmouth beheaded in 1685, and himself ascended the throne in 1685. The remaining children, Charles and Mara, were smuggled to France (out of Scotland, and later taken to America in 1687). James II succeeded his brother Charles II reigning from 1685 - 1688, was then driven out in the bloodless revolution of 1688 by his son-in-law William [III] of Orange and daughter Mary [II], who reigned 1689 - 1702. Under Anne who reigned 1702-1714 as a result of Protestants placing her on the throne rather than James III, the Pretender - her half brother. This marked the last of the House of Stuart - her successor being the first of the House of Hanover - George I (1714-1727).

19 Dominique Domingue fought in the French and Indian wars under Marquiss Montcalm in Arcadia and was driven out of Arcadia with the Huguenots to the USA. The Domingue family came from France and were the neighbors of the Froniers in Southern France and were feuding. They came to America under the name of Ostei (Ostiguy) Domingue. Then the different families took whatever names they thought best. Some were Osti, Ostis, Estey, Esteys, and Austin. (source: handwritten notes by Wallace Osteyee with corrected name spellings by Wallace [Skip] Osteyee, Jr.)

Notes from Bruce De Larm (December 2007): The family’s surname appears as Ostigui Dit Dominque most of the time in the Catholic Church’s Canadian records. Ostilly, Ostie, Ostillie, Ostiguy, and Ostigny (with and without the Dit Dominque) are common variations in the Canadian records. Osteyee is the most common version found in U.S. records. Francois was baptized as Francois Osteguy in Marieville, Rouville, Quebec. Emilie was baptized in Chambly (St. Joseph), Rouville, Quebec. Francois brought his family to the Hague, NY area a little before 1850 where most of them resided until after the Civil War.

26 From her obituary: “June Engelbrecht, the former June-Marie Fink, of the pioneer Fink-Lorentzen family, died on May 11 at University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia. She was the beloved wife of Lloyd Engelbrecht of Cincinnati, loving sister of Dorothea Fink, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and the late William Nelson Fink of Omaha, who died December 31, 2008. June Engelbrecht was the devoted mother of Khadija Fouad of Jeffersontown, Kentucky, and Julie Rowlands of Broadview Heights, Ohio, and dear grandmother of Omar Fouad of Nashville, Maryam Fouad of Louisville, and Ibrahim Fouad and Hussain Fouad of Jeffersontown. June was a nationally-known authority on Henry C. Trost, a major figure in the architecture and planning of El Paso and other cities and towns of the Southwest in the early twentieth century. She was co-author of Henry C. Trost: Architect of the Southwest; among the awards the book won was The Texas Historical Commission Award for the Best Specialty Publication of 1981. She went on to become cocompiler of a complete catalogue of the works of Henry C. Trost and the firm of Trost & Trost, funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and housed in the El Paso Public Library. Her last lecture on Trost was at the University of Texas in El Paso in 2007. Born in Philadelphia on September 1, 1930, she grew up in El Paso, where she attended the Radford and Dudley schools and graduated from El Paso High School in 1947. She earned two degrees from Mills College in Oakland, California, in 1951 and 1953, the latter an M.A. degree in art history. She went on to study at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, before serving as a curator at the Smith College Museum of Art in Northampton, Massachusetts. A resident of Cincinnati since 1981, she served as a volunteer at the William Howard Taft National Historic Site, and at the Cincinnati Art Museum. She was an authority on the historic factory buildings, "Ivorydale," in St. Bernard, near Cincinnati, designed by Solon S. Beman for Procter & Gamble, and delivered a breakthrough paper on the topic at a national meeting of the Society of Architectural Historians in Washington, D.C., in 1986. Active as a photographer, she documented the buildings of Trost, Beman and other architects as well as the stained-glass windows of Cincinnati. Her other work in photography explored the imaginative and creative aspects of the medium. A memorial meeting will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, 2009, at the Maisons Lafayette Clubhouse, 879 Rue de la Paix, Cincinnati, Ohio 45220.

38 Member of the Christian Endeavor Union, serving as the Prison Superintendent.

Article reads: "A Friend of the Prisoners". [source The California Endeavorer, December 1927 - January 1928, Volume XV, Number 5]

"The California C.E. Union is fortunate in having Leon C. Osteyee as their Prison Superintendent. His untiring love and devotion to his "job" at the three state penal institutions have won him a place in the hearts of many hundreds of men behind the gray walls. We will probably never be able to fully measure the tremendous amount of good that he has done for those less fortunate than we. It is not an uncommon sight to walk into his office in San Francisco and find him busily engaged in trying to help an ex convict find a position of respect and start life ane

Besides his work at the prisons, Leon Osteyee manages to help on the County Executive of the Marin Union. His "living expense" job is that of a real estate broker, but he says this is only a sideline.

Leon Osteyee truly lives his Christianity."

41 Notes from Donna Charboneau: "from Civil War records, Warren Co, NY - Henry was a farmer in Hague, NY. He enlisted as a private in the Union Army, Company B, 62nd Infantry Regiment New York in Crown Point, NY on May 1, 1861 for a 3 yr enlistment. He "took part in the Battles of Fredericksburg, Chantilly, and Gettysburg. re-enlisted Jan(?) 1st, 1864 and died in the Battle of the Wilderness, May 5, 1864. buried on the field." Hague town vital records indicate the burying place as in Spotsylvania, and that he was survived by a widow and children."

Notes from the “Newspaper of the Anderson Battalion” (Volume 2, Number 5, 1 June 2007): Henry Osteyee was a member of the Anderson Zouaves, a New York volunteer regiment raised by Colonel John Lafayette Riker, which fought for the Union cause during the American Civil War. Found in the article is the following listing: “Williamsburg May 5, 1862 ... Wounded ... Pvt. Henry Osteyee (AKA Oystee, Oytseyu) Enlisted by Capt. William N. Hathaway (Co. ‘C’) in Co. ‘B’, May 1, 1861 at Brooklyn, NY at the age of 25 as a private. Listed as wounded New York Times, May 29, 1862.” 
Osteyee, Henry (I829)
42 Notes from Marta Beaudry from her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": "I have several census records to prove that Francis was born about 1825. In 1855 and 1860, all prove he was born about 1825. I also found his marriage record to Esther Beaudry in Vermont and his age remains the same. I found Francis with his family on the 1865 New York state census in Hague. On the 1870 federal census he is
not listed with his wife and children. He must have died between 1865 and 1870." 
Osteyee, Francis Xavier (I112)
43 Notes from Marta Beaudry from her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": "1855 New York State Census for Hague, Warren, NY states that Mary Jane was an adopted daughter. I found her biological family living in Hague, Warren, NY in 1850 when Mary Jane was 3 years old. The grandfather's name was Samuel Skinner - age 65, a farmer, birthplace Vermont, and married within the year to Sally - age 58, birthplace New York. Mary Jane's father was Elip Halet (hard to read), he was 33 years old and born in Vermont. The mother's name was Hannah - age 30, birthplace Vermont. Mary Jane had an older sister named Sylvia M - age 7, birthplace New York. Then it shows Mary J - age 3, birthplace New York." Osteyee, Mary Jane Skinner (I901)
44 Notes from Marta Beaudry from her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": "Adalaide may have been born in Essex, Chittenden, Vermont. I found a census record with Adal aide as "Lucy" with her parents in Essex, Vermont in 1850- she was 11 months old at the time the census was taken. Her younger brother Lewis was born in Vermont as well as her younger sister Amelia. I kept her birthplace
as Hague, New York because I found an 1855 state census us for Hague that states that Adalaide or "Delia" was born in Warren county and lived there for 4 years (she was 6 at the time). I found a cemetery record that states she was born in 1847, however, I have found her age to be consistent in several census records that she was born in 1847. I have found Adalaide in 1850, 1855, 1860, 1865, 1870, 1880, 1900. All these censuses show that she was born in 1847." 
Labounty, Adalaide (I893)
45 Notes from Marta Beaudry from her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": "I believe Esther's parents to be John Baptiste Beaudry and Marie Baille because the Beaudry family and the Osteyee family lived close to each other for years. She may have been born Marie Esther Beaudry. I have census records to prove that Esther was born about 1824. 1855, 1860, 1870. I also have her marriage record from Vermont - married to Francis Osteyee. I located Esther and children through 1887 in Burlington, Chittenden, Vermont. www.ancestry.com" Beaudry, Esther (I47)
46 Notes from Marta Beaudry from her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": "I determined Lucy was born in Vermont rather than Canada because I found several records that state she was from Shelburne. I found a few that said Vermont and some that said Canada . I found a Frank Osier in Shelburne, Vermont during the time she was born. I decided that the evidence is greater that she was born in Vermont.

I found Lucy and Lewis Labounty married in Vermont in 1845 (actual document). According to her birth date she would have only been 11 years old. I have researched this. I could not find a birth record for Lucy. The earliest document is her marriage to Louis Labounty. I have traced her on census records. In 1850- Vermont, 1855-Hague, New York; 1865- Ticonderoga , New York; 1870- Vermont; 1880- Vermont; 1900- Salisbury, Vermont with daughter Jessie Dyer . All census records say the same thing about her birth date. They all make her born in 1834 . The 1900 census states she was born Mar 1834. Her death record collaborates that she was born 12 Mar 1834. Therefore, I must come to the conclusion that she was married at age 11 and had her first child (Adalaide Labounty) at age 15. 
Osteyee, Zoe Lucie (I828)
47 Notes from Marta Beaudry from her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": I found on the 1870 federal census for Middlebury, Addison, Vermont the last name spelled Boudry. I also found on the 1880 federal census for Pittsford, Rutland, Vermont the last name spelled Boudrie. I also found Moses on the 1890 federal veteran head of household with the last name spelled Beaudry. Moses J Beaudry served in the civil war from 1861-1863. He was injured in the head and leg. His military records have been ordered and is pending. He served in the 62nd INF Co I." Beaudry, Moses J. (I834)
48 Notes from Marta Beaudry in her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": "I found Lillie living in Lansingburgh, New York with her husband and 2 sons in 1900. Her husband [is listed] as a widow[er] in Vermont on the 1910 census. I have not been able to locate a death record for Lillie yet. I have looked in Vermont vital records and found nothing. This leads me to believe that she died in Lansingburgh or Troy New York (close to each other) between 1900 and 1910." Beaudry, Lillie May (I919)
49 Notes from Marta Beaudry in her report "Descendants of Francois Dufault": "On his death record it states he was born in 1873, but I later found his birth record that states he was born in 1872 (film # 540063) . His last name on the birth record is spelled Boudry. It lists his mother as Lucy Osteyee who's birthplace is Shelburne. His father as Moses Boudry-birthplace Highgate, VT." Beaudry, Raymond Francis (I863)
