Looking for Levi Gravel and his family. He was born in Canada about 1820 traveled through Cohoes, NY settling in Illinois. He married Marie Beauchamp about 1844 in Canada. According to the Troy,NY 1860 census; Levi, Mary, Mary L., Ester,Rosealee and Francis Mdgeall were living there.
One of Levi and Mary's children married my g-g grandfather, Napoleon Guertin. Napoloen's wife name was Armadulie Gravel who I suspect is really Ester. But have no 'proof' of that theory. Were this children adopted by Levi and Mary ?
Levi died in Peshtigo, Wisc in 1895. Beleived he was a widower and living with a daughter. I have no information on the where abouts of Mary's (wife) death or any of her family, like parents etc.
Anyone who has any information they would like to share with me........it would be greatly welcomed.
Thank you, Barb Ebeling
