Would like the parents of JAMES & PAUL POITRAS. They r. Upper/French Canada c 1822 where the following known children were born:
JAMESb. 1822 JULIAb. 1823 PAUL D.b. 1825 CAROLINE b. 1826 JOSEPHb. 1829 JUSTINEb. 1832
Supposedly Paul was b. between Ottawa & Montreal, where his parents might have had a bar in which the boys were forced to work.Two boys supposedly left Canada for Central New York State c. 1840.Paul remained in Chenango County, NY, but James moved to Philadelphia, PA where he was said to have owned a clothing store & lived to be 100. One of the girls is said to have become a nun & lived in Louisiana, USA. Any inf. would be appreciated...thanks/merci.C.J.
