Hello. I am looking for my great grandfather JOSEPH DION from Canada, who for many years used the name JOSEPH
SAWYER, and then changed it to JOSEPH YOUNG. I know he was on the Vermont border in Canaan, NH for a a couple of
decades. He moved around a fair amount, following lumber-related work. This Joseph was married to Julienne Bourgeois/ alias
Julie Bushway. They had children Joseph, Ellen, Charles Arthur, Otis (my grandfather), Henry and Fred. There may have been
more. I always heard 4 had died of smallpox around the same time.

Joseph Dion/Sawyer/Young lost his wife Julie in 1887, and remarried a younger woman named Mary Durant, who was
supposed to be from Vermont. She was French, not English. I speculate her real name may have been Marie DeLaDurantaye.
Or some variant thereof. Or Durand. She was a widower who had been married to someone name Guyette or Guyotte. Mary
had a brother named Henri Durant, also supposed to be from Vermont, and also French Canadian descent. Anyone make any
connections with these folks?
