I did go through the message boards on Rootsweb and extracted what was related. However, I am hoping to get in direct contact with the descendants - I am sure there is a grandfather around who has history on his ascendance.
From my research, so far, I have identified two persons from Ripley NY who moved to Kalamazoo : John Bevis Bergeon, born in Ripley, son of Joseph and Julia Bergeron from the Vaudreuil area in Quebec. Ross Edgar Bergeon, John`s nephew, also born in Ripley, son of Antoine (Anthony or Timothy) and Virginie Bergeron.
I suspect that the Bergeon from the Guitar store are their descendants.
In spite of their modest origin, these Bergeron from Canada have an amazing history.
