    Notes 
    • 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. [3]
