The surname Votrie is likely a corruprion or anglization of Vaudry, a more common Fr.Can surname. I mention this because my ancestor's surname was Voodre, somwhat similar to Votrie, and I have come to believe it was originally Vaudry, though still seeking a positive connection.
Ther were many Fr.Canadian natives in the area at that time.
