Antoine Menoche immigrated from Canada to the United States about 1856. From our research we have determined that Menoche was a dit name for Cotnoir in Canada. Antoine apparently was born Antoine Cotnoir as indicated by his baptismal record. After his immigration he was a mill worker in Rhode Island and was called Anthony Miner. We speculate that the Americans had trouble pronouncing the French sounding Menoche. Upon moving to Massachusetts the name was changed to Menoche. Antoine is descended from François Cottenoir who was living in France in the early to mid 1600s. Please go to the Coat of Arms for more information.
The Menoche family has been traced back to Charlemagne through Gervais Le Marchand sieur de La Bellonière. The lengthy lineage is not included here. However, you may contact us directly for the details.
The site now contains a search feature. This will find persons who are listed on the site. If the person is still living e.g. a living child, there will be a link to the parents.
You can also use the surname index to find a person you know. This option will not find people who are living it will only find people included on the site.
I have added map links to the person pages. If you click on the icon after a place this will take you to a Google map to show the location of that place. However, in some cases the link may not work e.g. a place that no longer exists. If you find any links that do not work, I would appreciate it if you would contact me and advise me. Then I can manually create the link to correct the problem.
