Hello Sally This has been long over due, but lost this site--new to internet!!! Some of my ancestors went to Minnesota from Ontario Canada about 1860. The one I am aware of was James, son of Francis & Jane who were born in Ireland 1797 & 1799. All of their children born in Canada West. Among some 12 or 13 was my great grandfather Francis C.born 1839. Others were Eliza, Catherine,Ellen, Sarah, Mary, Josephus, Harriet, Victoria,Ann and William. Any info would help & hope this helps you. Phyllis.
