JAMES & PAUL of Upper Canada & USA

  of 257

Would like the parents of JAMES & PAUL POITRAS. They r. Upper/French Canada c 1822
where the following known children were born:

JAMES b. 1822
JULIA b. 1823
PAUL D. b. 1825
CAROLINE b. 1826
JOSEPH b. 1829
JUSTINE b. 1832

Supposedly Paul was b. between Ottawa & Montreal, where his parents might have had a bar in which the boys were forced to work. Two boys supposedly left Canada for Central New York State c. 1840. Paul remained in Chenango County, NY, but James moved to Philadelphia, PA where he was said to have owned a clothing store & lived to be 100.
One of the girls is said to have become a nun & lived in Louisiana, USA. Any inf. would be appreciated...thanks/merci. C.J.
