Looking for any information on either an Alexander Goulait/Goulet or a Joseph Goulait/Goulait. Family lore says Alexander may have been involved with the Civil War. Joseph was lasted as a sailor on census' from 1861 in Canada and also in 1870 in Michigan. I also have found both Joseph and Alexander as 'Goulat" listed as sailors in the 1851 census of Hay Township.
Any ideas of where to find further information would be appreciated.
