a. Note:   Note that the family was "using" the surname, Lapham, in the United States as early as 1861 in Shrewsbury and before Telesphore used it in Albany [New York] circa 1864. Many French-Canadians "anglicized their names in the United States. French speaking Canadians were looked down upon by English speaking Canadians and Americans. Very seldom, however, did French-Canadians marry outside of their heritage, this being apparent with the later generations of "Laphams". And it was quite upsetting to "Anglo-Canadians" if a son or daughter married someone "French". This occurred in the 1903 marriage of Silas Louis Lapham and Norah Agnes Goodspeed with the Anglo-Canadian Goodspeeds having next to nothing to do with Agnes Lapham for one half a century. The rabid separatism of current day Quebec is one of the manifestations of the attitudes toward the French-Canadians by the rest of Canada. {by: Herbert Louis Lapham, Jr., 1996} is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
