Hi I'm still at a brick wall for Francis Xavier St Amour, b abt 1830 Canada.He married a Mary Ann Lafleur or Florent or even Miller for her last name.She also was born abt 1830 Canada.They came to Vermont prior to the birth of one of their daughters b Helene Louise b 1865 in Burlington. They only show in Burlington Vermont in the 1870 census. Looks like they were here till abt 1877 when they were godparents to one of their grandchildren.
The only clue to where this family came from was from their oldest known son Francis.He stated at times born in Merrickville Ontario.
If anyone knows anything of this family, I would apprecitate any little piece.(the 1870 census showed with last name as Sintmour)
Known children to this couple are:
Francis X St Amour, b abt 1850-1854 Poss: Merrickville Ontario d 1923 Burlington,Vermont,married twice, first to Josephine Delorme and 2nd to Aurelia Bessette.
