Can you help with my brickwall?
Julie Dugal married Felix Allard 24 January 1832 at
St-Roch de Quebec. Julie and Felix die before 1877. Some of their children are Honore who married Philomene Laverdiere at St-Roch 17 October 1859;
Alfred who married Marie Morency 9 January 1866 at St-Roch
and Felix who married Georgina Royer 9 October 1877 at St-Sauveur de Quebec (Felix's reisdence is St-Roch);
Germain who married Eleonore Moffet 2 May 1883 at St-Roch.
I have not been able to find Julie Dugal's parents or her birth/death dates/places.

A little of what I know as of September, 2002:
The earliest members of my family in North America on my mother's mother's side include William Maundrell born 7 March 1834 in Wiltshire, England and his wife Maria(h) Vickery born 12 July 1836 in Somersetshire, England. They immigrated to Canada in 1854 and spent most of their lives in Sarnia, Lambton County, Ontario, Canada. Maria died in York Township, she had been living with her daughter, Kate Grace.

William Lawton born about 1801 in England and his wife Mariah Luther Penson born 19 February 1808 in Little Steeping, Lincolnshire, England. They married at Navenby 9 July 1827 and sailed from Liverpool and arrived at the Port of New York 26 September 1827 on the Brig Goliah; immigrated to Upper Canada from the United States in 1832 and spent some of their lives in St. Thomas, Elgin Co.; and Mosa, Middlesex County, Ontario. I acquired a copy of William's 1872 will at the D. B. Weldon Library at The University of Western Ontario.

Abner Kelly/Kelley born 4 February 1814 in the United States and his wife Elizabeth Cowal/Cowell born about 1816 in Upper Canada. They were married in Southwold, Elgin Co. but spent most of their lives in Ekfrid, Middlesex County, Ontario. This summer brought a great break-through in Kelley research with the help of a related Kelly researcher from St. Clair Co., Michigan.

My mother's father was Roy Ellwood Kinney born in 1902 in Lansing, Ingham County, Michigan and died in 1944 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan. His father was Charles Franklin Kinney born 1870 in Edgerton, Wisconsin and died in 1943 in Walworth County, Wisconsin. His mother was Florence Rosetta May Robbins, was born 1862 in Chautauqua County, New York. Her parents were George Robbins Jr. (b. 1821 Otsego NY) and Susannah M. Ordway (b. 1829 NY). This summer my mother met a first cousin she hadn't known about before I dug up her family tree with the help of another Kinney family researcher.

On my father's side, the Magnans have been in Quebec since the early 1600s. My grandfather immigrated to Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan in the 1920s.
