Was there an early colony of Frenchmen in the GEORGETOWN, NY area? I believe a JAMES POITRAS/PORTER, a French-Canadian, settled there between 1830-1846. I have inf. that he later r. in Chenango & Broome counties, NY, before moving to Philadelphia, PA where he died, aged 100. Would like to know where I can locate the history of this French settlement. Thanks, CJ
