Two different family lines came from or through Huron County. Louis DeRosia was born in Goderich. The family lore says there was a fire their town and the children were put into 2 boats for safekeeping while parents fought to save their town, the prevaling winds carried the boats with 14 children in each across Lake Huron. Is this fable or fact?
My family is the Kronich or Kranich line what was from Ethel Canada. John Kronich/Kranich came to Canada after the civil war where he enlisted from Germany into the NY Vols.
Thanks for you help in these families that seem to have desolved into the Canadian sunset.
