A Tribute to my Ancestors - And a Legacy to my Children

     Welcome to my Procunier Lineage Page. The Surname of Procunier has many various spellings, such as; Peconier, Brockunier, Bragunier, Bragoonier, Bragonier, Pragunier and a few others. The Procunier's were originally French. This line fled France to Germany due to religous persicution. My page will start off with John Nicholas Peconier. A lot of this information come from the book; "Early Settlers of Long Point", and "A Compedium of Mabie Research", to name a few. I would also like to thank all of my distant cousins and friends who helped me with this line, such as: Irv Krause, Elizabeth Mock, Judy Ring, and many others. I believe that all the information below is correct, but if you find any discrepancies, please email me. I hope you find the information below helpful to you.

     Please remember each bit of information found here, or elsewhere, must be researched and proven by weight of evidence, via you, the researcher.
