Surnames: Bushee, Genereau, Corriveau
Scott,
I am related to the Bushee's that moved from Huron Counties(Ontario and Mi chigan)to Minnesota. Michael Bushee married Josephine LaPorte September 4, 1875 in Huron county;canada or michigan uncertain. There oldest child, Clare, married John Corriveau. Michael and Josephine's line is the one that moved to Minnesota. I had Cariveau's and Greenwoods in my graduating class, whom I personally know. Michael's 2nd child, Joseph, married a Genereau from Meade township, Huron county Michigan. I am trying to find out if this line has any native american links. Hope to hear from you. Kevin

Someone closely related in this family changed there name from Boisvert to Greenwood when they moved
Perhaps we have a connection???

I do not have a record for Albertine. The Greenwood/Boisvert family that is connected to mine lived in Huron County, Michigan and Polk County Minnesota. If I do find Albertine, I will post the info.

Surnames: McArthur, Goodwin, McCash, French
I'm researching some family names from Huron County. The names are connected to McArthur through the marriage of Hattie Goodwin and James McArthur around 1917. The other surname is McCash. Merritt French interests me, too. Are you familiar with any of these?

Hi Charlene

I don't believe that your McArthurs are connected to mine. Our McArthur line begins with John McArthur and Isabelle MacAuley who, along with 108 other families, emgrated in 1851, from Lewis Island, Outer Hebrides, Scotland, to Huron Township, Bruce County. This county is just north of Huron County, Ontario. The families came to Goderich, and then moved north in Huron Township. There were several other McArthur families who came at the same time, and perhaps your line belongs to one of those. I completed a book on my McArthur line in 1996 and did four generations of descendants, so know our line fairly well.

I will do a check on the names that you have and get back if I find anything. You might try to the Huron County Genealogical Society, Goderich, or the Huron County Museum, at Goderich. You will find them on the web, I think.

The McAsh name is not that common over here, but I did know a Louis McAsh family on the Bruce Peninsula, Bruce County, in the 1950s. They weren't a settler family but moved to the area.

Regards,

Patsy L.

Surnames: Granville, DuCharme
I have a Delina DuCharme b. 1831 husband Augustus Granville b. 1824 and brothers Gabriel and Joseph Granville. They were in Hay, Huron, Ontario 1851 census, and in Southampton, Bruce in 1871. I saw your postings on a Chippewa Michigan board listing Ann Marie DuCharme and Augustin Gonneville. The similarities make me wonder if there are connections.
Appreciate any info/leads.
Thanks,
Peter Granville Brown
