[QUOTE[My best friends name is Ouellette. His parents are both from Maine[/QUOTE]
Lot of French families from the St John Valley and Ft Kent/ Aroostook County area have branches in Conneticut, they moved down for work at Pratt and Whitney, Phizer and the the other big companies. Ouellette is the most common spelling up there, But I've seen it with no E on the end, one T , and I knew a guy from Presque Isle that spelled it Willette.
I'd bet there are more than a few Pelletier' s, Clukey's, Daigles, Morneault's,
Cote's, Dubois ( du Bay, du bwah , du Boys) Thibodeaus , Theriault, Soucier, Saucier, Belanger, and Rioux (reo) in the phone books there.
