Our story starts with the marriage of Joseph Ulric Therrien of New Hampshire and Avalin Watson
of Georgia in 1952.
It's a story about each of them, their children, and each of their families, the Therrien's and
the Watson's as well as the maternal family lines of the Marquis's and the Chambers's. The Therrien's were
originally from La Rochelle, France by way of Quebec, Canada and then New Hampshire. The Watson's were originally from Scotland by
way of Virginia and then Georgia. The Therrien's and Watson's are only part of the story... there are many more names in the
family history found inside! Chambers, Vachon, Marquis, Bryce to name just a few.
The goal of this website is to capture the history of all who belong in our Family Tree and to learn about our ancestors -- who they were, where they lived and the stories of their lives. So start your journey today. Explore these pages, learn about a distance relative who served in the Civil War, find out how many ancestors share your Given Name, look up where they lived, and ponder if perhaps some of our ancestors had a small role in making a bit of history.
-- Len Therrien, Webmaster, son of Joseph Therrien and Avalin Watson
Therrien, Watson, Vachon, Chambers, Marquis, Cole, Bryce, Canac, Lessard, Cote and many more.
