    Notes 
    • Nicholas did not come to the United States with the rest of the family. He came at a later time after his service in the army.": Robert Leishman papers in possession of Robert L. Quinnett.



      Nicolas was apparently conscripted into the army at age 20 (1833) for seven years under the "Law of 1832 of Marshal Soult." Consequently, the earliest he could have rejoined his family in the United States would have been 1840 at age 27. : Jacques Charbonnier, email 23 July 2004, Subject: Re: La famille QUINET-GRANGIER ... Commentaires ! [He must have joined the family in New York, since the family probably moved to Wisconsin Territory between 1842 and 1844 -- see notes for Pierre, father of Nicolas, on the rationale for when the family moved to Wisconsin Territory. Apparently, he met Mathilde in New York either before or at the marriage of his sister Pauline to Moses Renaud, but he married her, apparently, in Wisconsin -- RLQ]

      "About 1875 Nicholas homesteaded a farm in Rooks County, Kansas and the family was there for about three years, and that is where Nicholas died in 1878. He was cleaning out a dug well and gas that sometimes accumulated in these wells killed him. Archique Quinette and another brother pulled him out and he lived four days.": [This information seems to have been furnished to Leishman by Jennie Philpott, daughter of Emily Frances Quinet, since the same information is in her letter to Archie Eli Quinnett of 29 July 1948, letter in the possession of Robert L. Quinnett.]

Quinet owned property near the town of Waubeka, once the Fredonia Post Office.": Marjorie Adair Neunes Gratton, MERRY CHRISTMAS to the descendants of the QUINET -- NEUENS FAMILY (December 1982), p . 3.
