Is anyone familar with the Lavoie name sometimes appearing as the name Louden? If so, please explain. I have reached a brickwall trying to research my great great gransfather listed as Eli Louden and his wife Thursile Dore. Their son Fred came to the US via New Hampshire.
I have been given information that the reason I can't find them is because their name may have previously been Lavoie. I have found a few women who were born as Lavoie and then used the alias Louden. Any info you may have will be most appreciated.
