My ancestor on my maternal grandmother family lineage goes back to a Louis Choquet who was a soldier in the King's regiment who came to New France in 1579 to help protect the early settlers against the Indians. There is a statue dedicated to him in a town square somewhere in a small town in Quebec Province. I think the town is named after him, but I am not sure. My mother's brother, Joseph Dubois did the research about 5 years ago. Details were sketchy. My maternal grandmother's name was Helene Choquette. SHe had married Alphonse Dubois, a carpenter from Beloeil Station, Quebec, outside of Montreal on the riviere Richelieu. She was born in the 1880s.
If someone else has any connections to that branch of the Choquets or Choquettes, I would love to hear from you and any additional information you can give me about that part of the family.
