As I am sure you know Robert is a bilingual name Roberts is usually English. Some of her children are born in Sutton, NH and the others are born in Bradford, VT. If I am correct, Laura had a sister, Rosa BUSHAW, who married George's brother Ephraim Mark Collins ABBOTT this is my father's line. In order to assure this information is accurate, I need more proof. I am hoping they tie in with one of the families I traced through Raymond families of New England. In order to find James's true identity prior to leaving the service, I have to search various resources using the most used names over the generations. One family member was told to search the records of the deserters.There are dozens of them in Vermont of 1790 (census) and a James living in Whitingham, Windham Co. I am unable to find a birth record or marriage record. She had a sister, Mary, who was born in Magoon Point-Georgeville--this shows on her death record. I sure do appreciate anything you can do to help me with any of the Abbott/Mcintire/Bushaw lines. I have traced my great grandfather's family to birth dates in Stanstead, Quebec but that is about as far as I have gotten. A Zebina RAYMOND marrying a Philena DAVIS, father Sampson Davis of Derby, Vermont around 1810 or so. Probably wishful thinking but it would make things a lot easier. Barb Pellett [email protected]'m doing some genealogical research and it appears that I've hit a snag with a family that moved from Vermont to Magog, Canada. The family is of Timothy WADE (or WAID, maybe WAIT, or WAITE) and Sabra STERLING.I have covered all the Historical Societies north of the border, with Kathy Curtis being very helpful.I have covered all the usual genealogy sites, Ancestry.com, etc.If you could give me some advice or direction I would really appreciate it.For me the problem is to find some kind of birth record (Church or Government) for Lewis around 1824 south of the border and/or his parent's birth records north of the border between -17.Sophia says in all censuses she was born in Canada and her parents were Canadian.
The Drouin Collection of records (available by subscription online) may be a help to you if you feel he may of had French roots. I am hoping to find where the families of John and Matilda came from. I believe shortly after he arrived in August of 1814 and after the Treaty in 1815 he may have been given a military land grant.I am trying to find out where my g g g g g grandfather came from but it is not in your area. His name is James ROBERTS b 2/26/1773 (I don't know where) d 8/2/1825 Swanton, VT. Adopted/ a French Canadian, always claimed he was an Alexander. If possible: 6) James & 7) Ruamy or "Amy" ALEXANDER parents to Alonzo....d. Background There is a probability that Alonzo' father and mother had moved back to his Canadian home when Alonzo and Mary moved to Georgeville. Alonzo's father came originally from Portugal, arrived in Canada in the Portuguese army under command of the British.
