( INSERTS FROM " THE LOTTINVILLE FAMILY" by Armand J. Lottinville Washington D. C. 1942) d'Anatoine Lemaitre dit Lottinville, his wife Maria-Aurelie Picot and their seven children took passage on the ill fated steamer the Alantic, for Detroit in the summer of 1851. The steamer had 600 passengers on board, on the night of August 19, 1851 while sailing on Lake Erie there was a collision with a schooner. At the very last minute their rescue occurred, loosing all they had, except their night cloths. In twenty minutes the steamer Alantic went down, carrying all but 120 of her passengers with her. Of those 120 passengers, d'Anatoine Lemaitre dit Lottinville, his wife Maria-Aurelie Picot and their seven children were able to all escape together alive. He and his family then proceeded to Bourbonnais, Illinois, there with the help of Nole Lavasseur, and his every ready purse, aided the family. The Lottinville's came to section 22, range 12, of Iroquois County Illinois, and built a farm house with lumber they hauled from Chicago. More amazing is that four of these same young men who escaped death on Lake Erie, served in the Union Army during the Civil War, and all survived and as follows: February 10, 1865 Thomas volunteered for the Union Army and was a member of Company K 147th Illinois Regiment. He served one year. In 1869 he became the first grain merchant in Papineau, Iroquois County Illinois when he put up the first scales. In 1873 he engaged in the mercantile business, and filled the office of assessor six years, constable seven years, and president of the village for four years.

Maria-Adeleine Lemaitre de Lottinville was sister to these brave young men, and my great-grandmother, she married Ludger Gelinas dit Bellemare.
