Thanks for responding, but I'm sure there's no connection here.I do know of all the relatives that were born here in the US (although I have lost track of distant cousins, and have at least one that I've never met -- but would love to make those connections if they're out there.)But it's really the Canadian connection that I'msearching for. And while Auclair is a French name, your spelling of O'Clair would seem to be more Irish or Scotch than French in origin ?? I'm not an expert on French Canadian names, by any means; I've just not seen that spelling before -- but perhaps someone else will be able to find you a connection.Good luck with your search.
