John Christopher Columbus b. 1832 Quebec

Been searching for years for the ancestry of this Columbus line. Can anyone help?

John Christopher Columbus was born Aug 14, 1832 in Quebec. His father was also John Columbus, but we have no further information on him, his wife, his ethnicity etc. Family stories say descended from Christopher Columbus, but....well....who knows.

John Christopher Columbus married Sophia Mary LeBlanc in 1858, Quebec. Their first 3 children, Eldrich, Harriet and Mary Sophia, were born in Canada. The family then moved to Ohio, where Victor, Emmanual, John Charles, Clarence G, and Anastasia Maedora (our line) were born. Births spanned 1858-1875.

Around 1890, the family headed west, settling in Walla Walla Co, Washington.
Anastasia ("Annie") married William Henry Beeman 1897 in Davenport, Lincoln Co, WA.

Can anyone help us with the ancestry of this Columbus line? Please email....any leads would be so much appreciated!
