  • Notes 
    • - 1880 census has John Rehor, 45, at Oswego, with wife Lenorah, 32. They are living with her parents, Theophilus Bartrum, 69, and wife Margaret, 67, along with son Theophilus Bartum, 24; both born Canada as were his parents. Also in the household, Edward Rehor, 12; William, 8, and Corah, 5.

      - 1870 census has Theophile Bartra, 60, b. 1810, Canada, blacksmith, residing in the Town of Oswegatchie, St. Lawrence County, NY, with wife Margaret, 56, (b. 1814) and son Theophilus, 15, (b. 1855.) He and his wife Margaret were born in Canada but Theophilus was born in NY.

      - 1860 census has Tophelus Barteau, 48, (1812) residing in Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence County, with wife Margaret, 48, (1812) and children Emely, 17, (1843;) Virginia, 15 (1845;) Lenora, 9 (1851;) and Tophelus, 5 (1855.)

      - 1851 Census of Canada has at Prescott, Grenville County, Ontario, T. Bartra, 43, a carter, b. 1808; wife Margaret, 39, b. 1811; Armelia, 9, 1843; Virgnia, 8, 1844; Philemon, 5, 1846, and Ellenor, 2, 1849.

      Notes...
      - Also at Prescott in 1851 is Lephes Bartra, 1810, with Luesil, 1818; Armen, 1845; Joseph, 1849, and Delio, 1850.
      - Also at Prescott in 1851 is Leouis (Louis) Bartra, 75, 1777, with Madasin, 55, (1797); Shelber, 33, (1819); Aulden, 22, 1830; and Madrosmack, 15, 1837.
      - Also at Prescott in 1851 are: O. Bartra, 1809; and Lephes Bartra, 1811.

      Note for further research: Theophile Bartrand is NOT Theophilus Bartra, born Nov. 28, 1811 in L'Acadie (Ste-Marguerite-de-Blairfindie) of Antoine Barthieume and Marie Bigaillon Berthiaume, since he is still at Quebec in 1871, age 60; and 1881, age 70; and, in 1881, age 69, with son, Theophile, 42, his wife Sohronie, 35, and their children; while in 1880, our Theophile resides with son-in-law John Rehor at Oswego, NY. (Theophilus Bartrum, 69 and wife Margaret, 67, and son Theophilus, 24.)

      Other research notes: 1851 Census of Canada: Theophile Berthiaume, 40, b. abt. 1812, Lacadie, residing Lacadie, Chambly County, Canada East (Quebec)
      Wife is Marie Grenier, 40. Children are: Theophile, 11, Frs, 7, Delphine, 3, and Emilie, 1.
      1861 Census of Canada: Canada East - St. Jean, Theophile Berttiaume, 49, b. 1812, Lower Canada, with children Frs, 1844, Delphine, 1848, Emelie, 1850; Cerile, 1853.
      Search finds he is son of Antoine Berthiaume and Marie Bisaillon. Married Marie Grenier and had child Francois Berthaiume (this must be Frs) who married Rose de Lima Legrand July 12, 1868, at St Jacques le Mineur, Laprarie, and they had child Marie-Louise Berthiaume, 1872-1956.
      Theophile, b. 1811, is still at Quebec in 1871, age 60; and 1881, age 70. In 1881, Marie is still with him at age 69, as is their son, Theophile, 42, his wife Sohronie, 35, and their kids.
      So, if Lenorah is the daughter, she must be Delphone. And where did I get the name of her brother Theophilus, b. 1856? Check census records.
      Nope, this is not our guy, since in 1880, John Rehor, 45, is married at Oswego with wife Leonrah, 32, and her parents are living with them: Theophilus Bartrum, 69 and wife Margaret, 67, and son Theophilus, 24. both John and Lenorah were born Canada as were his parents.
      Theophilus Bartrum is 69, born Canada; Margaret is 67, b. Canada; Leonara is 32, born Canada; and Theophilus Jr. is 24, b. Canada.
      So: Theophilus was born in 1811 in Canada, as was wife Margaret, in 1813. Since likely oldest son Theophilus was born 1856 in Canada and Lenorah, 1848, Canada, they must have married about 1847 in Canada. Look for that.
      - Leanor Barton Rehor; Leona Barton Rehor
      - Found Jean Baptiste Theophile Emile Bertrand, b. 1856, Chambly, of Theophile and Marie Elmire Leblanc.
      - 1861 census of Canada has Theophile Bertrand, 34, and wife Mary, 34, (both b. 1827) at Ottawa, with a Theophile Bertrand Jr., age 3 (1858) Lenorah should be 13 - there isn't such a person.
      - 1910, Worcester, Mass is Theopholio C. Bertrand, b. 1856 Canada, with wife Olive, 47, b. Vt.
      Find obit of Lenorah Rehor.

      In 1947, death of William Rehor listed sister Mrs. James (Cora) Wood, Oswego.
