I really hate the fact that I copied this from somewhere in this computer and didn't document the site where I pulled it from. I know at the time I grabbed it I was browsing through the library online from St Louis County Library from St Louis MO.
I too am a descendant from the Garneau Lineage, and after browsing so thoroughly through Dick Garneau's extensive site have found that it possible in the Canadian documentation we were GRENON but most census records here between Illinois and Missouri and our personal documents are Garneau and Gurnow.
