I'm trying to find information on Counter Family from Canada.I have a Felix Counter (Contois) and Felix brother Oliver Counter. Felix married Sophia Goodchild and they had 8 children: Minnie, Polly, Joseph, Amelia, Delia, Mary, Louis and Theodore.Oliver married Agnes Counter and they had 4 children: Howard, Laura, Maud, and Ellen.
Is this the same family line you are researching?The name changes and much moving around makes it difficult to trace this family.
I have found some information that suggests that Felix and Oliver were part native american (Indian).Another name probably native american that shows up is Contwa.
This family went from Canada to New york to Wisconsin to Minnesota; at least that is what appears in the information I have found.
