In your posting you talked about Montana, My great grandfather came from Havre, Montana. On one picture of the home, we have, it said the house was 1 1/4 miles ouside of Havre. According to my mother the family may have moved from Havre to Oswego in the US for a short period of time and then ended in Buffalo, NY. My GreatGrandfather was Fredric Albert. His second marrage was to Anna Catherine (nee Rexinger). They had 5 kids Fredrick, Ruby, Margret, Francis Catherine(My grandmother), and Florence. Their birth order I am not sure of.
Francis Catherine Esmay married My grandfather Amos Abraham Taylor of Chrystal Beach, Ontario. Is there any connection?
