Mon nom est Maxime Poiré. I'm from Québec. I think we are cousin. There's only one ancester Poiré for all the canadian. So chances are that we're in the same family. I'll see if I can e-mail you my family tree. For your question about William, part of the answer is on the website: familytreemaker.com. If you type poire and you go to william, you'll see that he died in Kansas in 1963.
