My family spells the name TRAMBLIE, but I have also seen many spellings in my research. I have found no new information on Jonas Tramblie/Tremblay other than what you stated. I have found a Baptism record from the Catholic church in Stanbridge East, Quebec, Notre Dame de L'assomption de Stanbridge for birth of Jonas on 3/29/1846 parents Jonas Tromblay/Tremblay and Sophie Guyon from Berkshire, USA. I am told that Guyon is French for Young. This record matches info. from Jonas Tramblie's Civil War pension records, except last name spellings and he said on some records he was born in Sheboygan, WS, same date.
I have recently found a marriage record from Potton Methodist Church records, Brome County, Quebec for William Tromblie, age 22 and Sophia Young age18, married 5/19/1839, witnessed by Franklin & John Tramblie. All the info. fits, except the name William.
The story in my family: my gggrandparents came to Wisconsin from Quebec due to some falling out with their parish priest. After settling in Janesville, WS they changed the spelling of their name, would not allow French to be spoken in the home, and left the Catholic Church. I have spoken to a woman who is married to a son of Harry Ivan, son of Phillip, whose story was that the family emigrated to Quebec from France around the Revolution time because they were Huegenots. If that is true maybe they joined the Catholic church sometime after arriving in Quebec?
Please reply, I would love to hear any new info. you have found.
