BRAULT & POMAVILLE ANCESTRY

Good morning to Members and -mmoran ( Michael F Moran ,) who originally asked for assistance / Quote ' Can any one tell me as to where to look for information in Montreal Quebec. ' unquote -- > 2-04-2011

This morning I was web-hopping with my " Old Faithful and the " Young un' " Our main search was for a another very old name along a very old ancestral trail ( sort of where they stopped for a while -set up the BBQ- made a cuppa - sorted themselves out before having another go - My work mate as usual was going over the material , sorting what to keep for me while me and the " young un " kept feeding her . ( a task she is one of the best at ) Suddenly she Bleeped very loud several times ( thats how she talks to me )Just like learning sign language for the deaf , instead she uses Beeping
This what we have found in answer to your original Query .

First the name - If you are going to do more research on the name
" Pomaville " Here are the other names from and direct from the same ancestry - Back to ( 1610 AD ) It goes back further but lacks prove.
The following is ( 98 % ) proven . one or two details were a bit dicey but although not proven by documntation do line up with the other Info. Ok michael lets get underway .
If you are going to Michigan , go to the ST Patrick Cemetry in Bay City < Michigan . Charles Pomaville is buried their ( along with some others ) He was born on 3rd May 1825 =- D- 25th March 1904 ( 79 yrs )
at Essexville, Michigan .He was the son of Joseph Pomaville and Sussana Rivard . I will mention them later in your family tree that turned up
At this stage you will need to grasp the =change in the Surname from ( 1610 ) to the Present day . the names
Pomaville,Pominville ,Pomainville and right thro the main other name ,( original ) which are in greater number in the states by far .
They are - Brault , Breault , Breau . -- To save time and other deversifing we will deal with only the Two main Ones --> " Pomaville " & " Brault " ** = " Brault " being the ancestral & original name- proven beyond -( 1610 ) Where are they you may well ask , outside of Michigan.--> Ontario , New England ,Florida , Georgia , Columbia , Minnisota, - . France has huge numbers Some came from Palero and two other places in Italy including Naples .Their is also a very good website to use with more on the Brault ancestry . Go to Robert.brault @ gens .csaffluent.qc.ca.Has an excellent proven record . I have also shown you the other way as well
I did not find the link to France . so that part is unproven. To save many false ancetry trails - You will need to use the Two main names together especially in the States and Canada in Europe their some using it jointly as you will see but mainly " Braun "-
Part ( Direct ) of your family tree is as follows ' Your father

- Alexander Pomaville -b-12th Feb 1929-d -23rd march 1992 Michigan
( he may even be buried in St Patrick's cemetry ) I didn't look .
- Mother - Francse p. Beine ( I did not research her side )

-G Father -Victor Pomaville -b-1904 -d-( ? )-m-( 21 ) 1925- Michigan
-G Mother - Christina Wishart-b-1906 -Scotland-m-( 19 ) ''
-inlaws - Charles Wishart m Catherine McQuillan _ Scotland
( the Wisharts arrived via Ellis island New York in Sept 1907- then travelled to Michigan to settle in Detroit.

-GG Father - David Pomaville ( see Document )-b-1879
-GG Mother - Elisabeth Smith -b-1880 )m @ ( 18 )= 1st wife
- Victoria F ( ? )-b-1879

This is the info in the 1860 Michigan, Macomb Cty, Harrison Twp Census:
Pomaville, Maxim, age 66
Susan, age 32

However In the 1850 Michigan, Macomb Cty, Harrison Twp Census:
Pomerville, Joseph, age 50
Susan, age 55
Maxine, age 21 sex: male
Richard, age 20
Juliane, age 15

I think what happened is that in the 1860 Census, the ages of Susan and Maxim were switched. Susan, age 55 in 1850, would be age 65\66 in 1860. Maxim (Maxine), age 21 in 1850, would be age 31\32 in 1860. Joseph, Maxim's father, probably died before the 1860 Census and Maxim could have inherited the land, making him the head of the household.

Further evidence is in the 1870 Census (same area) Maxim Pumaville is now age 42, and is married to Mary, age 20. Also listed is son John, age 2 and daughter Angel, 10 months.

in the 1880 Census, Maxeime (Thank God for soundex) Pumaville is now age 53, Mary is 30, John is 12, Angelline is 10 and other children are: Henry, age 5, Mary, age 4 and David age 1.

I happen to be researching this family as well, as I descend from a possible brother of Maxim's, Joseph, Jr. So far I have found the following spellings for the surname: Pomainville, Pommanville, Pomanville, Pomaville, Pomerville, Pomavilla,
Pommaville, Pomneville, Pomarille, Pomaritle, Pominville, Pumerville, Pumaville, and Puminville.

From the 1850 Census, Maxim's father appears to be Joseph Pominville of the Pomainville dit Breault family from Quebec.** ( note the name change- Michael ) just the start - look at this - haven't started on the " Brault's yet
Surnames: Pomaville, Pomainville, Pommanville, Pomanville, Pomaville, Pomerville, Pomavilla, Pommaville, Pomneville, Pomarille, Pomaritle, Pominville, Pumerville, Pumaville, Puminville
I think I may have a clue as to why info on Maxim born about 1796
is scarce . This is the info in the 1860 Michigan, Macomb Cty, Harrison Twp Census:
Pomaville, Maxim, age 66
Susan, age 32

However In the 1850 Michigan, Macomb Cty, Harrison Twp Census:
Pomerville, Joseph, age 50
Susan, age 55
Maxine, age 21 sex: male
Richard, age 20
Juliane, age 15

It may not have answered your question Properely , But it may assist you a little . Their is more - Families of families etc and some history . However I have done this journal in France to assist you ,and research . My own personal research in Rennie is also completed and I am heading to the swiss/ German Border to try and find some answers on a another family . I am deactivated from answering any comments officially and I have also volunteered to answer no comments for four ( 4 ) months - Private messages are being passed on .The difficulty in your particular Ancestry is the Name changing and trying to link up to the Brault Line which is the same family , and larger by far in numbers . Glad to know you got home safely from Vet Nam I had two ancesters that have not come back and left their families to make their way in this world
. All the best - - Kind regards - edmondsallan
