1834-1835 Passenger List

Posted: 31 Oct 2007 1:54PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Sobraro, Peacock, Barbeau, Lalonde
Does anyone know where we can begin to search for passenger records leaving Sault Ste Marie Michigan during this time frame.

Sobraro, Margaret also Sobrano; arrived in 1835 on the steamer Niagara from Michigan; on Oct. 13, 1842, married the gunsmith and later successful lumber dealer [see] Joseph Peacock, who came to Chicago in 1836

Margaret Sobraro was just a young girl at the time of her arrival in Chicago. She may have been travelling with her younger sister Josephine. We know that her mother Josette Lalonde Sobraro was deceased, and have evidence that her father Jean Baptiste Sobraro and her older brother Francis Sobraro remained in the Soo for the rest of their lives. A point of interest, is that her uncle Pierre "Peter" Barbeau was in the fur trading business. He may have had some connections to have these children put aboard the Steamer Niagara and receive safe passage to Chicago. She and her sister were probably staying at Fort Dearborn on their initial arrival. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
