John Burke arrived in Canada, age 11, on 29 Sept 1847 on he ship Champion. I cannot find him on any passenger list. He supposedly was residing with a La Page family on the 1851 census in Rimouski County. I have searched that census for several hours without finding him there.
Does anyone have a La Page family on the 1851 Rimouski County census with John Burke living with them. Why would a family there take a boy off of a ship to live with them ?
