John's family immigrated to Ishpeming, MI from Ste. Julienne, Quebec some time between 1871 and 1875. Between 1877 and 1880, the family moved again to the Garden Peninsula in Delta County. The family lived on a farm that was southwest of Garden.
Census records show John's nephew, Joseph St. John, coming to the US in 1880.
I have no information indicating when Elzear St. John immigrated.
