The Melanson Family

Father: Charles Melanson [Charles] [Charles La Ramée] [Pierre Laverdure]

Mother: Marie-Anne Granger

Note: Some of this family ended up in Québec due to the Acadian Expulsions of 1755 hence the use of both the original English spelling of the Melanson surname and the Frenchinized version.
