Wow! That you so much for ALL of that information!!! I'm glad you were able to make sense of the name "Jerh" on Eliza/ Lizzie's immigration record! I had been wondering for a while now what it read. I didn't know if there was an error in naming him as a brother. (One of my other relatives listed a sibling incorrectly as an uncle) Thank you!
I also forgot to note that there was a brother named George as well. He was born Sept 4, 1859. Makes me wonder now if there were more siblings.
I have listed Sarah Jane Petit as marrying Alonzo Thurber as well. Sarah Jane appears to be the daughter of Joseph/ Job Petit. Joseph/ Job Petit's father appears to be George Petty, husband of Eleanor Gaynard.
I have never used genealogybank before. I hadn't realized what a great site it is! It would be fascinating to see those articles.
My grandmother used to speak of the Tennian's. Eliza's sister Mary Petty married Patrick Tennian.
Also, Eliza would have been the "Coderre" listed in the other article. She married my great grandfather Napolean Coderre!!
The article headings are fascinating!
