Thanks for your note and a very good point indeed. I have no information as to Why or How he / they arrived at either Waterloo / Saint-Dunstan / Lac Beauport or Broughton. The records I have indicate a marriage in Lac Beauport with three children born there and three in Broughton before the trek to the mid north of Ontario where the other four children were born. I suspect maybe other family members were already there.
Interesting and a family history adventure for sure.
