Hi Emily, My gr-gr-grandfather was Richard Nontelle who was born in Quebec, Canada in 1812. He married Margaret Murphy b. 1814 in Limerick Ireland. They had a son, my gr-grandfather, whose name was Richard Francis Nontelle b. 1836 Three Rivers, Quebec, Canada, d. Oct. 4, 1920 in Saginaw, Michigan.The men were marine engineers or boat operators on the Great Lakes between Canada and Saginaw, Mich. They dropped the 'e' at the end of their name when they immigrated to Michigan. After their deaths, my grandmother changed the names on the grave stones to Nantell. I have more info on the Saginaw Nontell family but nothing on the Nontelle's in Canada.
