Classification: Query
Surnames: Daviau aka Devoid, Fortier aka Furkey
Furkey is in no way Indian thow this might not be as romantic as your assumptions, Furkey is simply the name change from the french FORTIER name that was mispelled by your census takers in the USA. Before crossing the border they were in the area of the Eastern Townships in the Province of Quebec, the Closest border crossing were Beebee Qc. or Rouse Point, N.Y. I have one example of a couples change; Joseph Daviau & Francoise Fortier born and married in Quebec under those names lived and died in Vt. USA under the names Jos. Devoid & Frances Furkey: Among some of the towns in the Eastern Townships you find Waterloo, Granby, Sherbrroke, Brome, Drummondville, and many many more. Need more help contact me at
