ALLEN BORDEAUX  (1833-1917)

 Allen emigrated to Malone from Canada, probably Quebec, at about the age of 15.  Family tradition holds that he studied for the Catholic priesthood, and even in old age he assisted at house masses held in Reynoldston.  At about the age of 24 he married Julia Hutchins, of Malone.  The 1870 Federal census finds him in the town of Brandon, in the area that was to become Reynoldston.  He was, if not the first, one of the very earliest settlers in that area.  Bordeaux practiced farming and raising hops, and appears to have had little involvement with the Reynolds mill or logging operations.  He died survived by four sons, twenty-three grandchildren, and five great grandchildren.  Some of his descendants remained in Reynoldston until the 1980s, and others own land there today.           

Beatrice Beaman

Allen Bordeaux.   I can just remember him as a little old man when he was really quite old.  I can remember going there for hops.    Mother would send me there to buy a sack of hops.   Not to the grandmother (Bordeaux)…I don’t think she ever spoke English.  But we could talk to him.  Nice looking man too.    Well only that he was quite aristocratic sort of…you know a real pleasant nice sort of man  to me  Of course I was a kid I couldn’t talk to him but I think he was pretty well liked.  And he was fairly well educated.  I don’t know if he was educated in the church to start with or not…he might have been you know…because he had more education than any of them up there.

Beatrice Beaman Tape 6 p.4.

 


 Eugene Bordeaux

Mr. Bordeaux:  He was very religious.  He would go to church whenever he could.  You could not go to church here every Sunday.  There would be some Sundays you could not get out of here.  The snow was so deep.   They always said the Rosary on Sunday.  The whole family, during mass hour see, they all knelt down and said the Rosary. 

Mr. Langlois:  Did you say the Rosary as a boy? 

Mr. Bordeaux:  Yeah, I sure did.  You had to.  If you didn’t, he’d knock the head off me. He was a tough old nut. He could have been…he was an awful nice old man. Everybody in town called him Mr. Bordeaux.

Letter from Mary Bordeaux

Note:  probably Mary Alice Bordeaux married to Elmer Bordeaux (Reome) son of Theodore Bordeaux Pearl
River, New York 10965

June 21, 1969

Dear Cousin Bill

If there is anything I enjoy more than digging up ancestors, its swapping genealogy notes with cousins      (included with letter is a family Genealogy for Frances Bordeaux Langlois).  If you find anything about the Bordeaux history that I don’t have I would appreciated hearing about it.  I started collecting Bordeaux history about forty years ago and I have very little to show for the search.  Lately several cousins have sent me stories that I can’t quite swallow.  I wonder why we never heard of them before.  And how can they turn up now, when none of the older generation ever heard of them.    For instance Marguerite told us that Bordeaux was not always the family name.  She said the name used to be Bouvier and then was changed to Bordeaux.  Your cousin Ernest Young said that he is descendent from both of the generals of the Battle of Quebec Wolf
& Montcalm???

This is what the old Bordeaux[1] told me.   Eli Bordeaux lived in Le Prairie, Quebec Canada.  His grandfather Eli Bordeaux came from France.  Eli III came to the United States in the night during the war with the Indians.  He said his family were buried in Malone – issue. Eli III had 6 children:

I.  Eli Bordeaux who went west 5 children 1. Marie,  2. Eli (Fred) 3. Arthur, 4.Joseph,  5. Edith who married a    Jasemere.

Eli (Fred) had 4 children – 1.Jimmy, 2. Josephine Married Pierce  in 1967 she lived with her  brother 3. Jerome E. Bordeaux 1917-1989 in Largo Fla.

II.  Peter Bordeaux

III.
Allen 1832-1917 m. Julia Hutchins   8/11/1860 in Malone

IV.  Judith Bordeaux m. Dumas Duluth

V.  Captain David (Bordeaux) b. Clinton Co. New York 1841 married L.C.  Keeley

1 child Ida who married Capt. Samuel Golden Ida had 6 children.  Howard
b. 1888, Ida b. 1890, Edna b. 1892, Vera b. 1896, Doris b. 1907, Irving b. 1909

VI.   Emma Bordeaux married Nero lived in Malone

3 children – 1.  Lena Nero  2. Malvena Nero 3. Vina
Nero

Allen Bordeaux studied to be a priest for three years, maybe in Valleyfield, Quebec.  He built a house nest to the (Franklin) Academy in Malone.  It burned down and he built another.  He went to Reynoldston to lumber and sold bark etc.   Frank (Orson) Reynolds bought a farm in Reynoldston and was one of the early settlers.  Allen married Julia Hutchins who was a milliner in Malone before she married.   Before that she lived in Bombay or Ft. Covington.   She was the daughter of William Hutchins and Julia Beauprie.   Elmer Bordeaux remembers that Allen and other men who l ived Malone lumbered in Reynoldston before (Orson) Frank Reynolds bought land there.  He says they sold hemlock bark to tanneries in Malone and St. Regis Falls.

I can’t be sure of any of this information.  As the older members of the family remembered things, I wrote it down, but when I read my notes to others there is always someone who says it wasn’t that way.

One of the earliest exports from Reynoldston was Potash made from the wood that the early settlers burned to clear the land.   Most of the settlers of Reynoldston were farmers.  They sold hops, potatoes , grain and other farm products .   They sold venison.  I have heard that elves visited at night and tied knots in the horses tails. During the civil War every other man was conscripted but your g.g. grandfather Allan Bordeaux was skipped.  By taking the owner of every other farm the
left a scattering of men to take care of all the farms……  
One thing that I have never heard disputed is that Julia Huchins Bordeaux had an Indian ancestor. 

 The Allen Bordeaux family moved from Malone to Reynoldston when Alice Julia  was four weeks old and she was born in Malone
December 2, 1869. ….

 I have found several Bordeaux family histories in the NY Public Library but I can tie our Eli to them. I f I can help you further let me know and I’d like to hear about anything more that your find out about the family.

 Good Luck to you

Sincerely 

Mary
Bordeaux

Captain David Bordeaux,* captain of the propeller, John Moran, is one of the most widely known masters of the merchant marine of the Great lakes. He was born in Clinton Co., NY in 1841 and was educated at the Academy in Malone , NY and at Nicolette College, Quebec taking a three year course of studies in the last named institution. At the age of fourteen years he began life on his own account as a tar-boy on the schooner “Courtland” sailing between Detroit and Ogdensburg and after two months was earning a man’s wages as a sailor before the mast. He was then employed as a watchman on the side-screw-steamer “Baltie” running from Buffalo to Chicago. The Captain was married to L.C Keeley in 1866 of Buffalo, N.Y. and the had one daughter, Ida who married Captain Samuel Golden. Captain Bordeaux resided at # 386-14th Street Buffalo,

 N.Y. No record of Captain Bordeaux’s death is given, but it is believed he died at about 63.

 Additonal material added by W.J. Langlois through genealogical research. 

Additional material has been provided by Richard Young who has also been doing a lot of genealogical research on the Young and Bordeaux families.
