Dragon Family Mysteries

There are quite a few Dragon families that have not been connected to a descendance of Louis Quay dit Dragon... yet.
Can you help?

  • John B. DRAGON of Lee, Massachusetts, and family.
    See our new collection of Dragons in the Vital Statistics of Lee, Ma!

  • The Dragons in Alburgh, VT. (also, see Vital Statistics for Alburgh)

  • In New Orleans: a marriage certificate for a Pierre Dragon dated July 2, 1804 in which his father's name is given as Joseph. The mother's name was somewhat less discernible as it is written as Margart Bodein but [the writer has] seen other spellings since the original certificate is not very legible. Pierre probably came down the rivers to New Orleans where he settled.

  • John B. Dragoon, b @ 1808, Canada; m Matilda Strong [Trahault?]
    Note: The Dragoons of upstate New York are descended from Quay dit Dragon. Oddly enough, the Dragons in that branch of the family used the name Etier dit Dragon (or Hetier, Ethier, Hethier).

  • Antoine Dragon, b. Jan 1864 in New York wife: Albina Dragon, b. May 1866 in Massachusetts; enumerated in the census of 1900 in Lowell, MA.

  • "We have a black iron shoe last, with 2 different shoe sizes. It's very heavy and my husband says it was made to set down inside another device which would hold it steady, so the person's hands would be free to work on the shoes. It probably started out in a shoemaker's shop. There is a printed name of "DRAGON NO.1" on one side of it. "

  • Solved! One of our Dragon cousins found a milk bottle in a yard sale: its label is for DRAGON DAIRY. Any ideas?

    • Jacqueline Carbone suggests: "the bottle could have come from my uncles milk bar in Shefield.It was called Dragon's F 2 Milk bar.That only goes back about 25 or 30 years ago."
    • Richard Ellers writes, "When I was a kid in the 30s/40s, we'd stop there for a snack or meal traveling to or from our home in Amsterdam, NY and grandparents in New Haven, Connecticut.   Seems to me my Dad learned, from the owner himself, the name had to do with the way he jotted his initials: F whatever and the whatever looked like a 2.

  • John B. Dragon of Southbridge, MA, married to Herculine Durocher. He was from New York.
