Places Family is Found


We have several theories about the possible origins of the family at Odanak --- Joachim Basil, heir to Francois' Durham Land appears to be a Taksus, so this family may be a branch of Taksus. Basil is a personal name found in two generations of Metallic descendants. The ancestor of Francois Lagrave appears to be Basil Lagrave and the Lagrave's used the surname Brazil in the U.S., so there may be a connection.
