While doing genealogy research I turned up records indicating that a Joseph Gardopée was born in Brockville, NY in either 1858 or early 1859. The rest of the family was from Bay City, Michigan, (although originally from Québéc) and Joseph later moved to Bay City where he was married in 1886 at age 27. Gardopée is a derivative spelling of Gariépy, and some records are in either or both surnames. This is the only connection I have found to Orleans County, but would appreciate any information that anyone might have. As small as Brockville apparently is, I am hoping someone who is familiar with the area may be able to help. Please reply directly by e-mail:

Thanks! -Ken Gardopée
