Thanks for your reply. I don't know of any connections to Pt. Colborne but
the Gonyou name is quite unique and I am sure we are related somehow. When
you are able, please send me your grandfather's name, and if possible his
father's name. Hopefully your grandmother can provide them. What I know
about the Gonyou name is that it is an anglisized version of a French name
and that it was probably first used in the Kingston area around 1820-1850.
There were three brothers, one of whom died without children, one from whom
I am descended, and a third who moved to Hastings county and which we have
no record of beyond that. You may be a descendent of that line, or of the
same line as myself. I have a second cousin who has a very good geneology
prepared and once we have your grandfather or great-grandfather's name we
should have agood idea of your family history.
What area in England does your family live in? My great uncle served in WWI
in the Dover area.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
