My GGGrandfather was born Jean Baptiste LECHAT but I don't know where. He moved to Amherstburg, Ontario (near the Windsor-Detroit border) sometime after 1804 and later anglicized his name to SHAW. I have not been able to find where he came from. I suspect that because his wife and children visited relatives in Ohio and Michigan area that perhaps they came from Fort Detroit or the family landed in that area from Quebec or France, spreading into Ohio, Ontario and Michigan.
Therefore, I would really like to chat with any SHAWs of French heritage whose family at one time lived in Ohio or MIchigan USA or Ontario Canada.
BTW if you are an Ontario Shaw of French heritage, so far, my branch of the family is the only one I can find that list their heritage as French on the 1871 census.
thanks a lot
