* Home Page for the Gagnon, Riel, Hurley and Holt Families*

Updated September 6, 2000

This web page will display, from time to time, various reports relating to the following family lines:
Gagnons of France, Canada and New Hampshire.

Riels of Canada and New Hampshire.

Hurleys of Ireland, Iowa and Texas.

Holts of Georgia.

Spencers of England and Connecticut.

Smilies of Ireland and Pennsylvania.

My first report is with respect to my ancestor, John Smilie. He was born in Ireland and emigrated to Pennsylvania, where he soon espoused the cause of American liberty from England. He served in various civilian and military capacities during the American Revolution, and afterwards was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives during the 3rd and 6th through 12th sessions of Congress. I hope that this information will be of assistance to some of you, and I would hope that you would let me know via e-mail if you are able to provide me with additional information about this family line.

In the meantime, please feel free to email with inquries or to share information.
