I have done very little of this research myself as a cousin of mine had already done most of it before me.
Michel Joseph Gautron was born in Larochelle, France 16 October 1642. He left France for Quebec where the family surname became Gautron dit Larochelle. A few generations later the surname became just Larochelle.
Sometime before 1900 Solomon Thomas Larochelle moved from Quebec to Maine and married Marceline Rochette. These are my Great Great Grandparents.
