Looking for information on Octab, Joe and David Gardner who came to the US from Canada in the 1800's. They may have gone to Canada from France and could have been deserters from the Napoleonic Wars. The surname when they arrived in Canada could have been LaSavage or Dagenais. Their descendants settled in the Franklin and Clinton county areas of Upper NY state. If anyone can tie this in with any info they have, I would love to hear from them. Some descendants names would be Santamore, Hough, Mere and of course, Gardner.

I have many, many Gardner relatives, past and present in upstate NY. Except for Gardner the only of naem I have is Dagenais which I've raced back to 1600 France. Even though I don't recognize the names you've listed it is more likely than not that we could help each other. Contact direct if it is easier. Paul email: pjgard@aol.com

I have some information on a Gardner family that came from Ireland (orig. Scotland) in 1852 and settled around Watertown, NY, Canton, NY and Fort Covington, NY areas. But no tie-in to Canada or France that I am aware of.

Surnames: Gardner, Rossborough, McGregor
The John Gardner family came from Ballymena, County Antrim, Ireland. The Gardners reportedly came to Ireland in the late 1700s from the Perth - Edinburgh area. John Gardner was a successful ironmonger (hardware) salesman with a shop on Church Street in Ballymena. He was married to Margaret Rossborough who died circa 1850. In 1852 John brought the family to the United States and settled in Frankfort, NY, just outside Utica. The oldest son, James, who was studying to become a Presbyterian minister, went north to the Potsdam area and was ordained by the St. Lawrence Presbytery around 1854. His first posting was the church at Hammond, NY. He married Catherine McGregor, whose family came from Methven, Scotland.

I am unaware of any of Gardners who came from the New Grey Frier area. However, they reportedly resided in the Midlothian vicinity, so it's possible.
