Looking for info on an Ontario Depew line

Classification: Query
Surnames: Depew, Swan
My father, Joseph Chauncey Francais Depew, son of Chauncey Depew, was born in 1934 in Ontario. I believe that his relatives live in or near a place called souix fall, or souix lookout. My father died a few years back without passing on much information of his relatives. This what he did tell me (questionable info at best). The Depews were orgionally French Hugenots (sp?), who moved to England for obvious reasons. From there, they moved to America, where we had plantations, also slaves, explaining african-american depews. We sided with the british in the revolution (why do you think my name is Tory?), and then moved to Canada. He once said something about the king giving us a chunk of land for siding with the british. He also claimed that we were related to the famous Chauncey Depew. Other than that, all I know is Joseph and his father Chauncey, and mother Margorie (maiden name Swan) moved to America when Joseph was 15. Joseph had 7 children, Myself, Tory, my brothers, Ferdinand, Gerald, Heath, Drake,and Bennett, and my sister, Kathleena. This is what I've been told, and would like to know the truth of any of it, and also any information on current relatives living in Ontario.
