I have just discovered this line in my family. I hope there is someone out there who can help me.
There were two brothers Louis Jean Baptiste Alair and Etienne Alair who left Quebec in the late 1700's. They settled on the Niagara Pennisula and raised families. Louis became John Alair and Etienne became Akin Alair. Both men fought in the war of 1812 with Charles Askins and are mentioned in The Charles Askin Papers.
Both brothers had Basile/Bozzle/Boswell Alair's. One married Elizabeth Senn and had 7 children that I can find. This Boswell died on 5 Oct 1881. This Boswell is the son of John.
I am looking for the other Boswell. The son of Etienne and Madalaine Fralick. I cannot seem to find who his wife is.They had the following children. Mehitable b. 15 Nov 1831, Mary b. 1834,Peter b. ? and a Silas Spears Alair b. 1839. Boswell and his wife died during the Typhus Epidemic in 1840s. Etienne died in 1845 and Madalaine in 1850.
Mehitable was married by 1847 but I don't know about the others. Mehitable is my 3rd great grandmother.
I would like to know if anyone has any information regarding this family and if so I would love to hear from you.
