In Reply to: Ethier Descendants from abt 1615 by Philip H. Bousley of 408

Hi Phil,

I have been trying to trace one of my husband's family lines and have hit a brick wall. I am hoping someone out there may be able to help me. I am trying to locate the parents and possible siblings of Peter Akey (Pierre Ethier)b. abt 1796 in Quebec, Canada.

Peter left Quebec and moved to Ontario however I am not sure exactly when he left Quebec.

Peter married Lorraine Wager on June 17, 1822 in Fredericksburgh, Lennox and Addington County, Ontario. Peter and Lorraine moved sometime later to the Tweed area of Hungerford Township, Hastings County, Ontario. Known children of Peter were Peter b. Jan 11, 1825; Thomas b. Jan 5, 1827 and Amab, an unusual name to say the least, b. Jul 18, 1833. There may have been another son named Joseph b. 1823 but have not been able to confirm that.

Some of the older members of the family say "AMAB" is an old family name which was passed down in the family. I think the name may have been "AMABLE" originally in French but the English record keepers couldn't spell it so it was spelt the way it sounded to them and the spelling stuck.

I would be very interested in any information you may have in your family history information which may connect to Peter and am willing to share what I have on this family.

Hope to hear from you soon.
