    • Name Francois CHARTIER 


      • In Chambly Francois Chartier was a carpenter, a trade that he followed throughout his life. He was also a British soldier in the War of 1812. In 1847 he and Josette and the children that were still at home moved to Keeseville, NY where Moise and probably the younger children had the opportunity to go to school. In 1855 Francois moved the family to Bourbonnais, Illinois probably on the encouragement of his son, Louis Chartier who had located from St Luc to Bourbonnais in about 1849. Bourbonnais was a community started by a French-Canadian Priest, as was St Anne, Illinois. These priests actively recruited French-Canadians to move to this part of Illinois, which wasn’t that difficult after the Quebec Revolution of 1837 – 1839. After this Revolution, the English clamped down on French-Canadian activities and opportunities. The Priests in Illinois planted in the minds of the French-Canadians they recruited to this part of Illinois that the territory would become a French speaking country more promising than Quebec itself. The family moved to Ste Anne, Illinois in 1859 a community started by Father Chiniquy who was excommunicated from the Catholic Church in 1858. Father Chiniquy, however, persuaded 80% of his congregation to join him in the formation of the church called The Christian Catholic Church, which later became the Ste Anne Presbyterian Church. In Moses Chartier’s biography in “Portrait and Biographical Record of Kankakee County, Illinois” Francois became sick while on a visit to his daughter in Kankakee. This is one of the basis for the connecting the marriage of Marie-Anne-Ermedlinde Chartier and Lewis Sheffer. Hower, this couple can not be found in the 1860 or 1870 census. When the 1850 census was taken, the “Francis Shorkey” family was living in Ausable (Clinton), New York. Francis and Leander were laborers. When the 1860 census was taken, the “Francis Chartier” family was living in St Ann (Kankakee), Illinois. Francis was a carpenter, Israel was a farmer, “Moyse” was a joiner, and Raphael was a student.
