Flora family of Oswegatchie, Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence Co., NY

I'm helping a friend on her Flora origins. The earliest known family member is Peter Flora, born around 1814 in Canada. His wife is Mary Guffell, and they had 10 children, all born in Canada:

1. Frank Flora, b. ca. 1832
2. Maxim Flora, b. April 1840.
3. Thomas Flora, b. June 1841
4. Mary Flora, b. ca 1842
5. Orrilla Flora, b. ca 1844
6. Remo Flora, b. 1846
7. Peter Flora, b. August 1848
8. Joseph Flora, b. ca 1850
9. Marion Flora, b. ca 1852
10. Louisa Flora, b. ca 1854

The family is in Lisbon, in St. Lawrence County, New York, in the 1860 census, and in later censuses are in Oswegatchie township, in Ogdensburg, still in St. Lawrence County.

Peter died on 9 April 1892 in Ogdensburg. I am trying to find the family's origins in Canada. I would welcome any suggestions!
