I appreciate all of your help here and appreciate the time that it takes to do all of this for me. Thank You.
Since I live about 9 hours away from Florence in Lower Michigan I doubt that I will get back to the Florence anytime soon.
A couple of more questions.
Alexander and Felicite were both born in the Deux Montagnes area, why would they go to N.Y. to immigrate? Detroit would have been the closer immigration office. Was there an office at Sault Ste.Marie?
Why didn't Florence County have a death record of Alex if it was such a big deal?
I was told by the clerk at the Florence court house that all naturalization papers were in Madison.
I'm trying to gather as much information as I can before the LeClaire reunion is held in the Flint area every year. This year it is on Aug 5th. Mostly descendants of Clifford LeClaire who settled in Perkins Mi.
Again, I appreciate all of your help here.
