This page represents all of the information I have gathered about my DeCoste lineage.  Louisa Baker DeCoste (generation 11) was my paternal grandmother; my grandfather was her first husband, William Smith.  Most of the information before Generation 11 is unverified, and a lot of has come from Karen Perusse's The Wonderful World of DeCostes website.  If you see incorrect information here, or if you have information you wish to share, please e-mail me.
