I have documents on Jean, his sons John Jr. and George in Cape Breton in 1818.
Their naming standards were John, George, William, James....sound French?.....I don't think so.
One of the land grant requests states George, age 22 petitioning for land in Nova Scotia in 1818..claiming to be a native of Scotland.
These same boys, with a brother James and sister Jane show up in Newfoundland, Sandy Point in 1839.
My branch went from there to the Magdalen Islands, Nova Scotia and finally New Brunswick in 1923.
Can anyone else add to any of this, or fit into it?
