Other family names are LAFAVE, WISCAMB, & MONTRE. Of course All of the names, with the exception of Wood, are spelled many different ways.

Most of the families are connected with more than one person and it gets confusing. I currently have over 2900 names in our Family Tree. Please contact me if you think I might have any information that would be of use to you or vice verse. I also have over 200 photos, some dating back to mid-late 1800s.

Rapue History:
Antone Rapue was born May 1844 in St. Louis, Missouri. His father was born in French Canada and his Mother was born in Missouri. That is the extent of what I know about him until About 1880, when he Married Emma Ruth Lavelett also born in Missouri. They had seven sons William (1882MO-1949CO), Edoire (1884-Unk) Then the family moved to Colorado. Fred (1887CO-1957CO), George (1890CO-1973CO), Antoine (1892-1894), Thomas (1984CO-1969CO), Paul (1898CO-1933CO)
My Grandfather is George John Rapue. He Married his first wife Margaret Christie and had two children, George William (always called Jr.) and Virginia Lucille. Margaret died February 27, 1927 of the flu.

Massaro History:
Cosimo Massaro (1839It-1925CO)and his wife Maria (1837It-1914CO)in 1863 and they had 3 sons Angelo(1867It-1902CO), Antonio (1873It-1955CO), Daniel (1877It-1911CO). Daniel Antonio Massaro married Gertrude A. Gaugler (1881PA-1953CO) in 1897 and they had 3 children. Anthony (1901CO-1971CA), Angelo (1904CO-??), Mary Louise(1909CO-1998CO).

My Grandfather George John Rapue married my Grandmother Mary Louise Massaro on November 8, 1929 in Golden, CO. Together they had nine children, Angelo (Daniel), Paul, Richard, Thomas(1936CO-1979CO), Patricia, Annette, Walter, Eloise, and Marvin(1949CO-1999CO).

These are the ones I started with, but I also included:
The Decendants of . . .
Antone Rapue (My GGrandfather)
Louis Tugard dit Laviolette (My GGGGreat Grandfather}
Cosimo Massaro (My GGGreat Grandfather)
Hans Jurg Shellenberger {My GGGGGGGreat Grandfather)
Thomas Wood (My GGreat Grandfather)

The Aubuchons are part of the Louise Tugard Dit Laviolette Report under his son Charles.

Does all that even make sense?
