What I have been told was that Barnabas who would have been my great great grandfather was the father of Francetta,who was the unwed mother of my paternal grandfather Kenneth Charles Lanktree. Grandfather married Hilda McCaffrey my grandmother,and they had 5 children of whom my father is the remaining one. The area is bordering Quebec and I don't know if they migrated down, but I don't have any recollection of any family members being of french canadian background. I do hazily recall my grandfathers funeral guests and some Irish accents. We were shown where Grandfather was supposed to have been born. It is on the the Canadian side of the border. There are Lanktree geneologists in Ontario, Doris and I can't recall the husbands name at present. But,they have a reunion, and would be interested to talk to you, and share some background. I hope you have checked back in since last August, and if you see this please write.
