Definitevely, Frederick was a German. Miller/Muller is a German surname and
Lallemand is a suitable "dit" name (means German in French). But, he wasn't
"Hessian", for he was in Quebec before 1776. French soldier (Alsacia)?
with English army? There were even German Acadians... It is a thrilling
To remark, that German often speak French and have more affinities than
ones with Canadians.

Subject: [Q-R] Frederick Miller Lallemand/Charlotte Bertrand Desrochers
> I am in need of information regarding a Frederick Miller and a Charlotte
Bertrand and their daughter Felicite, who married Francois Raymond Feb. 2,
1801 in Longueuil.
> I found a baptism certificate for a Felicite Miller in the PRDH database
(11-7-1783, Chambly). The parents are listed as Frederick Miller Lallemand
and Charlotte Bertrand. This may be the family I am looking for despite the
discrepancy in the father's name.
> The PRDH also has a couple record (but no family record) for a Frederick
Miller Lallemand and a Marie Charlotte Bertrand Desrochers (married
5-14-1770 in Chambly). So another discrepancy, this time in the mother's
name. There is no family record for this couple, only a couple record with
one daughter listed (Charlotte, not Felicite).
> The trail for Frederick goes cold with his parents, who are listed as
Frederick Miller and Marie Ann Lan (married before 12-31-1760).
> If anyone has any information about any of these people I would be so
grateful to hear from you.
> Also, the surname of Miller seems so English, rather than French. I
understand that there was a British occupation during those times. Perhaps,
Frederick conquered a woman's heart rather than a country and decided to
reside in his lady love's country. But then, that romantic scenario doesn't
account for the "Lallemand." If anyone has any understanding about this, I
would love to know that, too.
> Thank you very much (in advance), Elizabeth
