I have been researching the 'LeBars' in Onario and although I haven't come across these particular names I have collected quite
a bit of data.

The spelling doesn't seem to be relevant.
The same family members have altered it on a whim and of course literacy is a major problem.

I believe that there were two groups of 'LeBars' who came to Ontario.

1. Probably came from upstate New York or
Vermont to the Eastern Townships of Quebec. They seem to have come about 1790
and have at least some connections to the
Loyalists. I expect that they are descendants of the Huguenot brothers who
settled in the Philedelphia are about 1730. These people are not the Quebec French name LaBarre dit Genest. Some, later came to the Whitby Twp. area of Ontario. I belong to this group.

2. Are descendants of Andrew who fought in the war of 1812 and settled aroumd the
western end of Lake Ontario. I understand
that Andrew is a known descendant of the
above brothers.

If you have anymore clues, I would be glad to
look through my data.
