Seeking info on this couple who came to Canada from France sometime between 1780/1800 probably. They were both born in France and were Huguenots. Joseph's surname was most likely spelled GONU in France. We know that they settled in the Thousand Island area of Canada and also lived in Ontario. Joseph died shortly after arriving in Canada and Margueritte raised their sons alone. The boys were double jointed and performed as acrobats, possibly preformed in France, but she also received a lot of money from revenue in France to support them. We have no idea where the money came from.
