Searching for a link between a Peter Jock b. 1844 and Amable Jock b. 1795.
The 1871 census of Canada has a Peter Jock b. 1844 living with Catherine LaRue b. 1844 along with two boys Frank b. 1867 and Peter b. 1869.They were living with Catherine's family in Glengarry Ontario.Mother is not listed but father is Angus LaRue.
I think that my Peter Jock b. 1844 is Amable's grandson but I cannot identify his father or mother.The leads I have found show a Peter Jock b. 1848 dying at age 16.Another lead shows a Peter b. 1851 that is the son of Andrew and Marie LaPorte who drops out of sight.I have no further info.
Later U.S. census data has Frank b. 1867 living in Monticello Iowa and Peter b. 1844, Catherine b. 1844 and Peter b. 1869 living in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
My other thought is whether Amable had any brothers with children???
