In Reply to: TESSIER/CASEY by Sara Burkholder of 1317

We've been in contact before. I am a Casey whose grandfather and great-grandfathers were Tessiers. My line emigrated into Michigan from Montreal, Quebec via Peterborough, Ontario, and Port Huron, Michigan. I have my grandfather and grandmother's name change documentation from the early 1900's. I was told the rest of the family except one brother changed their name at this time.
I am descended from Alexander Casey/Tessier and Stephanie (Fannie) Corbeil (Corby). I am having a difficult time finding out whether Alexander had siblings or who his parents were. The only information I have is that many of them moved to the Detroit region. There could be the possibility that some had moved east from Ontario into New York. I just don't know!
Alexander and Fannie eventually settled in Saginaw, Michigan where many of their children also put down roots in the surrounding area. I am also told that there are Taceys in the Essexville area who are related.
It's hard to believe that a simple name like Tessier can have evolved into so many variations and downright different surnames!
