Je vous remercie pour votre réponse ,
Laurent Moore was my arrière-grand-père. Laurent married Celanire Gagnon and had a daughter Pamelia Moore. Pamelia married Adelard Marion. One of their quatorze children was moi mère , Beatrice Marion from Ontario. My surname is Brunet and I descend from Pierre Brunet from Quebec.
I do know Laurent was not French by birth.
I was hoping some one from St. Claire would know of his history.
