I am is search of Richard Francis Nantelle, my great grandfather and his early ancestors.The spelling of the name is very unique and was handed down through many generations. We believe that he was born in Montreal Canada in 1836. It is possible that he served in the US Civil War.He died in Saginaw, Michigan in 1920. Canadian researchers will not touch a look up without an exact date or location, neither of which I can provide. Richard's father was also Richard however we cannot confirm thiswithout records.Census information from Michigan indicates that Richard Francis' father came from France. We are not sure of this either. ANYleads would be greatly appreciated.
