Earliest Occurrences of the Name


Francois Pierre Wasamimet b.abt 1774, appears to be the ancestor of all that are found of this family name at Odanak, except Romain.

Romain Wasamimet b.abt 1782 was actually a Gill. His marriage record states Romain 8esanmimett was s/o Joseph Gill & Therese Abenaki. Romain's dau. and sister used the Gill surname but he used Wasamimet. Perhaps his mother was a sister to Francois Pierre Wasamimet?

Ursule Wasamimet (d/o Francois Pierre) was known as Lucy Emmett (1806-1860s) in the U.S.. She married Francois Lagrave (Frank Brazil in NY) and the family lived at Sharon Springs NY.

Jerome and Elijah Wasamimet (sons of Francois Pierre) were at Andover and Rangeley ME with their Annance cousins in the 1830s. Jerome married Catherine Lombard of Magalloway, moved to Sharon Springs, NY, and changed his name to Peter Emmett.
