I am one of the grandchildren of Dr. Joseph Seymore Almas, a dedendent of Christian Almas, a Hessian who fought in the Revolutionary War. We have information that Christian was given a land gramt in Canada as payment for his services.

Dr. Joseph Almas's parents were David Almas and Maria Burns. We believe the family lived in Hagarsville, Ontario for a while. We have an old photo of a commercial building with the name "Almas Building" on the top floor.

Dr. Almas was one of eight children. He attended medical school in Toronto and immigrated to Havre, Mt in about1890 or 1990. He married Georgianna Taylor Sanderson abotu 1910.

We would love to have any information you have about this family.
