I know this is over 3 years later, but I recently had an assignmnet for school in which I had to research my family tree and came upon this post. The family that you are searching for is also my Family. The man who changed his name was Fred Cond (Cund) and was married to a woman named Eliza. The settled first on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, living in the community of Bidwell. They had 5 children Rose, Joe, George, Lou, and Edith. 3 of the five children moved to the U.S. My great grandfather was Joe and he was one of the two that stayed in Canada.
