I am very interested in what you have found. His son, George (my great grandfather) traveled from Vermont (where he was born in 1830) down through the midwest to Colorado and then up to Montana (where I was born). He didn't do well in Montana and returned to Colorado but all his family stayed there. I cannot find the place in Vermont where he was born. The 1850 census said only his mother was born in Canada and a census before that in Kansas, I believe, said both parents were from Canada.
