Yes, and thank you. I have most of this data, however there still remains the question of whether John George Brontmire's name was John George Brandmaier prior to his arrival in Canada. The 1871 Canada census spells his name Brandmair. All subsequent census records up to present day spell the family name as Brontmire. == My family was Anna Maria Brandmaier b.1836, and her brothers Michael Brandmair b.1832 and Charles Brandmire b.1829. Note the three different spellings. John George Brontmire was b.1828. All were born in Germany and moved to Dundas, Ontario around 1856. My Charles married Anna Marie Hirshman about 1856 in Germany. John George Brontmire is next to Emory and Elizabeth Hirshman in the 1871 census, and are buried four plots from them in St. Anne's Cemetery, Dundas, Ontario. I hypothesize that Emory b.1820 and his brother John b. about 1824, and sister Laney b. about 1825 may be the siblings of Anna Marie Hirshman b. 1831. If so then John George Brontmire may be the sibling of Charles, Michael and my geat Grandmother, Anna. Does anyone have any information that may either reinforce or negate this hypothesis?
