SORDELET

 

The Sordelet family name goes back many years into France.   There are records from the church at Courchaton, France, which give much information.    It appears that several branches of the family of DECOLE SORDELET came to America and settled in Allen County, IN.   Some in Perry Township and some in Jefferson Township.  

 

Deicole Sordelet  born about 1630 in France was married to Francoise Martin also born about 1630.   Their children were:

 

            Francois Sordelet b:  1650

            Madeleine Sordelet  b: 1655

            Pierre Sordelet  b: 1658

            Jacques Sordelet  b: 1670

            Henry Sordelet  b: 1672

            Luc Sordelet  b: 1672

            Claude Sordelet  b: 1678

            Anne Sordelet  b: 1679

 

From these branches came the local Sordelet families.   If any Sordelet family members have the Sordelet genealogy going all the way back to Decole Sordelet we would like to include it in our archives.   

 

There are many, many members of this family and they all seem to have 3 or 4 names at least making the tracing more difficult.    Let us hear from you Sordelets with your family line,  stories and pictures also.
