I too am related to the Livernois family, from years back, my maternal great grand mother, Mosierann Bennett, was half Livernois, and the other half was apparently Ojibway. She settled in Northern Michigan at Kenton with her husband William Bennett and had several children, Sam, my grandfather, Jack, Robert, Rueben, Jane, and Ethel. Sam was the first state trapper in Michigan in the early 1910's and Jack was the second. They were responsible for eliminating a huge quantity of the coyote and wolf population in central upper Michigan to make way for homesteaders to have free range for their cattle and horses. Nice to read your post regarding the Livernois family background. Thanks.

I have researched the LaVanway family back to Paul Benoit dit Livernois and Isabelle Elizebeth Gobinet. I have just joined the Vermont French Canadian Genealogy Society, to verify my findings. My ancester from Que., Canada to Clinton County New York was Toussaint Livernois/LaVarnway. Thank you for the information.

My husband is of the Joseph Lavanway/Eunice Woodley line. Joseph and Eunice have a daughter which appears to be "Moserand" on the 1860 census in Wisconsin when she was nine years old. I believe she and your Mosierann are possibly the same person. Please e-mail me at:[email protected]
