G'Day Michael, I have sent you a list of people and their phone numbers for you to contact. I hope you and Faye enjoy your trip north, Jan

I mean't to ask you if you checked out the Le Convoi de Cadillac 1701 marker in Michigan. Your ancestor's name should be on that. Jan

Hi Michael,

* there is a forum here Maxim POMAVILLE b.abt.1796 at ancestry.com

It was orginally written by 'Beck' in 2004 who wrote:

... 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.

... I think I may have a clue as to why you aren't getting anywhere with info on Maxim born about 1796. This is the info in the 1860 Michigan, Macomb Cty, Harrison Twp Census:
Pomaville, Maxim, age 66
Susan, age 32

... 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 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 etc etc

* there is a very very large family tree here:
Brault dit Pomainville/Pominville which starts with
- Jean Baptiste Brault dit Pomainville b: July 20, 1699 in Lachine, Quebec, Canada
- he married 1st Marie Veronique Bourdeau b: April 19, 1702 in Lachine, Quebec, Canada m: December 14, 1721 in Lachine, Quebec, Canada
- he married 2nd Marie Veronique Bourdeau b: April 19, 1702 in Lachine, Quebec, Canada m: December 14, 1721 in Lachine, Quebec

they have a great list of chilren and childrens children on that tree, you should have a lot of fun working out who is who :)
