Dear Jan, Thank you for your insight into the history of Eastern Canada during this time period 1830-1850. It does help to explain the migration of these folks to the US. My dad's story was that this Michael Casey/Tasey/Tessier was in trouble with the law over a fur trading deal. Thus he changed his name to Casey. That may explain part of his history but I think the name change also had to do with record keeping. The census records show him to have been born in French Canada. I will try your suggestion to see if any info turns up on his parents. Thanks again. Sara Burkholder
