« By 1850 in Michigan, the census takers were begging the french families to please shorten their names. They had originally been using the Tessier name on census records, but it is generally known that the census taker asked them to choose one, the family name or the dit name. Around this time, Francis Xavier, and his brother Hilary who also resided in Monroe, chose to use the name Santure».
