I once helped someone on Ancestry track down her "Smith" line. Another bunch of Vermonters who originated in Canada. I finally located them with some creative searching. Their name was some very long and difficult to pronounce French name. "Smith" was easier so they used that instead.
So far I have Poireau who became Poro, Tetreault, who became Tetreau, who became Tatro, Gregoire who became Gregor, who became Gregory, Dupuis who became Dupree, and the list goes on. lol
Thanks for the input. I'll take a look at some of those. One of them might just break down the wall!
