Ted: I just read your original message, mentioning that Celia may have had Native American parentage. That is interesting, in that the Vaudrys were "voyageurs" - the Fr/Canadians who sailed and explored the Great Lakes area and beyond, and there is evidence (church records, Canadian records, etc) of intermarriage with native women, even as far west as Oregon. I have learned through internet research that my ancestor, Sarah Voodre, is said to have Native American blood. I have not yet been able to verify this, but the story seems strong in various lines of her descendents.
