Londo Surname


Julia Philomena (Londo) Root

While researching my husband genealogy, I found a French connection.  I’m new to French Research, so some of it seems very different to me.  The French language is scary!! Wish I would have paid more attention in French class!! I’ve got it from Wisconsin > Quebec, Canada > France (that’s where the name changes!) The name Londo changes to Languedoc in Quebec, then in France to Cazalet Languedoc to Cazalet de Languedoc to Cazalet. And they lived in Montpellier, Languedoc-Roussillon, France…. gasp!!

When Julia Philomena Londo was born on June 4, 1863, in Ahnapee, Wisconsin, her father, Alfrederick, was 29 and her mother, Philemon, was 29. She married, Charles Harrison Root, on July 24, 1880, in Jacksonport, Wisconsin. They had 14 children. She died on October 4, 1919, in Cadillac, Michigan, at the age of 56, and was buried in Calvary Cemetery, Flint, Michigan.

When Alfrederick “Frederick” Alderick Londo was born on February 2, 1834, his father, Antoine, was 32 and his mother, Almira, was 20. He married Philemon Burbey on July 4, 1855, in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. They had 19 children in 27 years. He died on May 22, 1928, in Allouez, Wisconsin, at the age of 94, and was buried in Wausaukee Evergreen Cemetery, Wausaukee, Marinette , Wisconsin.


Frederick Londo Gravestone

Frederick Londo enlisted in Company K, Wisconsin 21st Infantry Regiment on 12 Aug 1862.Mustered out on 02 Mar 1863.

He is found in the US Federal Census’ of 1850, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, & 1920 all in Wisconsin.  Also in the 1890 Veterans Schedule Census in Egg Harbor, Door County, WI

Antoine Joseph a Londo Languedoc was born on August 3, 1801, in Quebec City, Quebec to Anne Madeleine Pinard, age 19, and Joseph Antoine Cajolet de Languedoc, age 21.  Antoine married Josette Lamirande on February 6, 1827, in Baie-du-Febvre, Quebec, Canada and they had 4 children.  He then married Elmira/Almira Champeau and they had 12 children together. He died on August 4, 1852, in Brown County, Wisconsin.


Joseph Antoine Cajolet de Languedoc was born in 1780 in Quebec, Quebec, Canada to Marie Francoise Faucher Chateauvert, age 43, and Jean Baptiste Cazelet de Languedoc. He married Anne Madeleine Pinard on February 8, 1790 (I’m not sure if this is a right date, because that would make Joseph 10 years old. So either his birth date or marriage date is wrong).  Joseph died on April 18, 1835, in Vaudreuil, Quebec, when he was 55 years old.

This is also where I start to find a lot of French connection, and the change in the names. Francois Cazalet from Montpellier, Languedoc, France is Joseph Antoine Cajolet de Languedoc‘s 2nd great grandfather & my husband’s 9th great grandfather.
