PILKAY

Hi...
My grandmother was a Pilkay(Eva Pauline) and her name had been changed from Peltier when they came from Canada to the states. The dialectal pronunciation of the name Peltier,
was quite common for a T to be pronounced as a K in some French dialects. Hence Pelletier, Peltier = Pilkay, Pelky, Pelkie. Just wondering if anyone else had run into this.
I have been looking in vain for any info on my Pilkays. They were: Alfred (Peltier) Pilkay, his wife Mary Louise La Que Pilkay. Alfred's father was Henry Peltier and his wife was a Canadian indian named Lettie Grey. We think they were from Ontario Canada.
This Pilkay family settled in Anderson and Knox Co.s TN.
Ring any bells for anyone? Thanks!
