Tammy LaForme,

I have just found a reference to a possible relation of yours at http://digital.library.mcgill.ca/County Atlas.
McGill's 1875 county atlas project includes Brant County.
There is an Agnes LaForme listed as an owner of Concession 1, Lot 10. She was the next-door neighbor of my great-grandfather, James Walton (Concession 1, Lot 11), who was married to Lucy, a Joseph Brant descendant through the Powless line. There is a Dr. Jones (related to Peter?) on Lot 12, and Jacob Brant on Lot 13.
Interesting neighborhood from a genealogical standpoint.
McGill has provided a great service with this site.

Terry Walton
