French DeGRASSE-DeGRACE researchers:

Antoni Pedro GRAS or Pedro Antoni GRAS who came to New Brunswick from the Island of Majorca off the coast of Spain at the end of the 18th century. Purportedly Antoni changed his name to Antoine DeGRACE around 1795 when he settled in Bathurst, New Brunswick while working for a major lumber import/export business
He married an Acadian, Angelique HACHE du GALLANT, and had a very large family. Antoni's father was of Majorca, while his mother, Magdalena PUJADES, was from Barcelona. Antoine DeGRACE Family group sheet.

Fr. Donat Robichaud of the Nicolas Denys Historical Society has written an account of the DeGRACE family (in French), which I've never seen, but that should be available in major genealogy libraries or possibly on film from Salt Lake City.

Charles Picot continues to research the DeGRACE family. Contact him for informaton on the Antoni Pedro GRAS line.

Louis De Grace, a descendant of Antoine DeGRACE, has graciously provided his research notes and a short commentary on his numerous trips to Mallorca, Spain for research on this line.

Another researcher has advised

"There are also references to DeGRACEs living in New Brunswick as early as 1785, on Shediac Island, then not too long afterward near Bathurst. The Atlantic Canadians 1600-1900." Personal e-correspondence with G. Timothy Walton

I have separated the various queries by probable ancestry. This is my best guess as to which line they belong - links to German and unknown and French ones below. Additions and corrections welcome.

Queries related to the German line of Jacob GRASS.

Other unknown GRASS etc., queries.
