Subject: [SCTCDN] Martin or Marshall Family in Montreal
Date: Tue, 11 Feb 2003 13:32:56 -0500
Searching for parents of Frank (Francis) Martin (possibly McMartin) born about 1840 in NY. Census info indicates his parents were born in Canada. My mother's recollections indicate her grandmother, Frank Martin's daughter, told her the family once owned the land the city of Montreal was established on. She was taken to a cathedral in Montreal on several occasions so I would assume a connection to the Catholic Religion. Frank Martin lived most of his life in Franklin Co. NY but I haven't been able to find any reference to his parents.
The other possibility is that the family referred to by my g-grandmother would have been from her mother's side. Clarissa (Clarissee, Clarisey) Marshall born in NY about 1837 to Joseph Marshall (Marchal) born in Canada about 1810 and Christie McDonald. Both Joseph and Christie's parents were born in Canada. Joseph's father's name was Antoine Marshall.
I'm new to Canadian research/history so any info that will point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
