Re: Ellery/Alarie/Allary/Allaire of MI
I have let my genealogy searches slip for a few years. I hope you are still around. My side of the Ellery (Allaire) family came down from Canada to New Braintree MA (and North Brookfield, MA) around 1840 or so. The 1850 census has them as Allaire, and in 1860 it was changed to Ellery. Although not the same person, my great grandfather was Augustus Ellery b.12/31/1860. His parents were Joseph and Elmira. Joseph was b.1/28/1826 in Canada. Elmira (many spellings) was b. 1826 also. We are not sure of her last name. Also, she may have been Native American...as that is the family story.
