Thanks Denise, I believe that this may be the same person. The birth date I got was March 23, 1809, but it was a hand written record in the museum in Empire, MI. I Know he is burried in Glen Lake, MI and the date on the grave stone is May 22, 1900. I believe Lizzeta (BRIEMER) Payment (? 2nd wife?) is burried next to him and the records in the museum list that they had 11 children. Most of whom where known to have been born in Canada, and I believe several married at least there 1st spouse in Canada, before comimg to MI. The story is that they came into the U.S. thru Ogden, NY, but most seem to have settled in Leelandau Co., MI (Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore area). Children of Francis Xavior that I have listed are: Maxime Michael, 1834 in Canada; Mary, 1847 in Montreal, Canada; Frank, 1842; Henry, Canada; Joseph, 1838 in Perth, Canada; Theresa; Philomena; Lizzie; Jane; Merceline, Canada; Phoebe.
