Happy Thanksgiving Bill,
The book focuses primarily on the 117 French-Canadian families who were
present and living in the village and territory of the town which became
Woonsocket in 1837, the year of its incorporation. She included some
families that arrived in Woonsocket shortly thereafter - and - remained
There is no mention of the Hunault family or of the Desorcy or Desorcey
family either. Only a Damase DECOURCY from Quebec city with his wife
Marie Cécile FOURNIER. His name is sometimes spelled DECORSY and De
COSTA, but never DOSORCEY, so I suppose him not to be your man.
Neither families are listed on the 1846 census of Woonsocket.
That is not to say they were never there, of course. It is probable that
they arrived in Woonsocket much later, or that they did not settle there
longer than one generation.
