>>One record using a another name 'Alphrode', and one of his children's death records used the name Moses (Moyse?).<< Yes, I was referring to children of Frederick's death record. Was it a mistake of a living relative or friend long after Frederick had passed away? Could be, and probably.

When did Frederick cross the border 'officially'? I don't know. If I make the presumption that he went from France occupied Territory where he was born (according to most of his children's census records, which gives his mother as Canadian born), then on to the USA, than I'd say that his first born's Canadian birth, and second born US birth would be the obvious choice time frame for his 'official' crossing. How long was he in Canada prior to coming to the US?? Unknown also.

I would love to have an 1840 Canadian census record or buisiness directory of where he lived (hard to tell!). His earliest US Census is 1850; which doesn't mean he's not on the 1851 Canadian Census, and may be a good idea to look for. If I were to guess his location in 1840's, it might be L'Acadia, or there about.

In 1850, he's living in Chazy, NY, just across the border from Canada, and like St. Valentin, where Helene was born, it's on/near Lake Champlain. Is his 'day labor' trade connected to fishing? Perhaps farming (since many French Canadian farms line the water ways).

1860 is a unique time period in the US, of course, due to the Civil War. Only his wife is seen on the census, and we didn't ask civilian's at that time if they were widowed, so I'm not sure if he died prior to 1860 or after. I don't find another census for him for certain, but that doesn't mean one doesn't exist. I'll attach a possible record of him, a Frederick Swenor, that I found for 1860. It may be him.

I've also found evidence that Sarah 'Sally' Celestia, Frederick's wife, married Nelson Stone, possibly as early as mid 1860's
