This page begins the earilier ancestors of Rosine Elizabeth Boyer. Rose Elizabeth Boyer was born January 23, 1836 near French Village, Ste. Genevieve, Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri. Read more about her on the George and Rose Rutledge page.
I had previously given Rose the name Rosine Esiell Boyer from other genealogists. However, after research, I have corrected her name to Rosine Elizabeth Boyer. The following gathers together her name in documentation:
1. In the county record of marriage, her name is Rosine Boyer.
2. In the June 2, 1880 census, Kingston Township, Washington County, Missouri, she is listed as "R. Eriell."
3. In the June 6, 1900, census, Washington County, Richwoods, District 0139 census, she is listed as "Rose I."
4. In the February 22, 1903 newspaper clipping celebrating her 77th birthday, she is called, "Rose."
5. In the May 12, 1910 census, Saint Francois County, Randolph Township, District 0083, she is listed as "Rosine."
6. Rose's death certificate lists here name as "Rosie E."
7. On her son James William's death certificate his mom's name is listed as "Rosa."
8. The family Bible lists her name as "Rose E."
In tracing Rose's parents the following information is considered:
1. Rose's death certificate gives her parents names as Marion Boyer and Francis Mosy. To date, I can find no information on Marion and Francis.
2. Rose's obituary lists one sister, Julia Dean. I found Julif Dean's death certificate and immediately dismissed it because the parents were not the same, listing "Batise" as the father and "Nora Boyer" as the mother. Later, I found this information helpful in confirming other research results.
3. A baptism record for Rose Elizabeth Boyer lists her parents as Jean Baptiste Boyer and Aurore St. Germain. Since this conflicts with the death certificate, I dismissed it at first, but upon a closer look, the birthdate of January 23, 1836, can be confirmed in three other documents, the death certificate, the obituary, and the family Bible. The "Batise" in Julif's death certificate would be "Jean Baptiste" and the "Nora" would be "Aurore," giving them the same parents. In addition, the birth parents were present when a baptism was recorded, but the informant of a death certificate is more likely to be incorrect.
This is a transcription of the baptism entry by Ida M. Schaaf, the sister of priest, transcribed in 1939.
This is the original baptism record of 1836 for St. Joachim Roman Catholic Church in Old Mines, Missouri.
The Godmother is "Rosine Lamarque" and it would seem that our Rosine Elizabeth Boyer was named after her. The Godfather is Étienne
Boyer. (How are these two related?)
I researched for a few hours these two unsucessfully, but have noted that the Lamarques were big contributors to the church in Old Mines. Also, Étienne is translated as Stephen.
From a quick review of the Jean Baptist Boyer family on Ansestry, he had about 15 children from his marriage to Aurore St. Germain. I wonder why Rosine's obituary would not list any of the other siblings? It could be that in 1916 Julie Boyer Dean was the only other sibling living (death in 1924). I have only just begun looking at this family, so I will edit this page as I research.
Jean Baptist Boyer was born September 6, 1792 in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, and died in 1850 in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. (There is another Jean Baptist Boyer, 1814-1841, a son.) Jean Baptiste Boyer married Maria Aurore Ste Germain. They had 13 children.
Jean Baptist Boyer's parents were Charles Boyer born 1753 in Kaskaskia, Illinois, and died in 1840 in Old Mines, Missouri. He married Marie Magdelene dit Chatillon Morice in Ste. Genevieve Catholic Church, Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, on July 10, 1786. She was born September 13, 1767, in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, and died November 18, 1858 in Old Mines, Missouri. They had 12 children. Charles is considered a "pioneer family" of Washington County.
This is an exerpt credited to Patricia Weeks: "Charles Boyer (one of the Boyer brothers to settle around Old Mines) was born around 1750, the son of Nicolas Boyer of Montreal and his wife Dorothee Olivier. This Charles was born across the river at Kaskaskia, Illinois. His parents moved over to the old Ste. Genevieve settlement where they both died in 1785. Charles, with his brothers, wernt back and forth from Washington County to Ste Genevieve. Archives mention Charles as active in mining lead as early as 1778. In 1786, at Ste. Genevieve, Charles married Madeleine Maurice dit Chatillon and from this union produced a large family.
Charles took up permanent residence in Old Mines around 1801. He later received the Old Mines Concession number 18. Brothers Joseph and Pierre also received Old Mines concessions, as well as nephew Louis Boyer. In 1833 Charles Boyer testified that he had lived continuously in the Old Mines since 1801 and was 82 years of age. The priest at St. Joachim gave deposition that he was well acquainted with Charles Boyer and family, and noted Charles had ninety seven children and grandchildren living at Old Mines. He died in the late 1830s.
His wife lived on until 1858, and in her burial entry the priest noted "she left living, mostly in this parish (meaning St. Joachim at Old Mines) a posterity numbering four hundred souls."
Charles Boyer's parents were Nicolas Antoine Boyer III born April 21, 1716, in Montreal, Canada and he died March 12, 1785, in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. He married Dorothee' Olivier May 14, 1748, in Kaskaskia, Illinois. (There is an indication on Ancestry that she is native American.) She was born May 14, 1728 in Kaskaskia, Illinois (one of 19 children) and she and died April 9, 1785, in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. They had 9 children.
Nicolas Boyer's parents were Nicolas Antoine Boyer II, born August 6, 1679, in Montreal, Canada, and he died June 21, 1723, in Montreal, Canada. He married Louise Payet dit Ste de Amour on June 2, 1704, in Montreal, Canada. She was born March 5 1684/85 and she died 1757 at Point aux Trembles, Montreal, Canada.
Nicolas Boyer II's parents were Nicolas Antoine Boyer I, born February 23, 1641/42 in LaRochelle, France (about LaRochelle on Wiki | born after siege in 1627-1628, just 13 years after the siege, his parents would have lived through the siege), and he died May 24, 1714, in Montreal, Canada. He married Marguerite Maclin on August 18, 1667, in Notre Dame de Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She was born 1648 in Champagne, France, and she died June 21, 1733 in Montreal, Canada.
Nicolas Boyer I's parents were Etienne Boyer born 1613 in Notre Dame de Cogne, La Rochelle, France. He married Perinna Peineau. She was born in 1622 in Aunis, France and she died in 1667.
