Need help finding immigration records from Canada into Michigan in 1871

I could really use some help. My GG Grandfather, Tellisfor Bertrand, immigrated from Canada in 1871. I find him living in Manistee, Michigan in 1880 US Census. He married Lillian Poire in June 1880. the 1990 census says he immigrated from Canada in 1871 but I can't find any record of it. He worked on a ship as a fireman while living in Manistee. Is there any records I could search that would help me find his immigration records? Didn't everyone have to fill them out when entering the US? Also, I am trying to find information to confirm his father. I think I may have found his father and his mother as well but can't find a difinitive way to connect them to my grandfather. His death certificate doesn't list his mother or father. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been stuck on this for over two years. Thanks.
