If you have Sedores in your Canadian ancestry, you may be interested in the following:

Sedore Family History, Volume 1 of a planned four-volume history

Volume 1 traces the descendants of Coonradt Sedore (New York ~1734-~1810) and Antje Bouckhout through four sons
Isaac (came to Canada), Stephen, Frederic and Jacob and their grandchildren, and mentions his great grandchildren,
whose biographies will appear in future volumes. Eventually 10,000 descentdants and about 6,000 of their spouses.

Sedore was a very unique name in early Ontario, and the vast majority of Sedores can probably trace their name back to

If you would like more details about the book please email me direct. It's published in the States,
and my connection to this is that one of my husband's gggrandmothers was a Sedore.

Surnames: Sedore, Thompson, Barnhart
My husbands great-grandmother was Phoebe Sedore, daughter of John and Margaret Sedore. nee: Margaret Thompson.

Phoebe was born in the Dominion of Canada, about 1826, and she married Jacob Barnhart. Jacob died in Canada in the spring of 1853. They had three sons, Leman, Noah and William. Phoebe came to Mecosta County, Michigan in 1860 and married George McGill, date unknown.

There is an old stone at Quigley Cemetery, which shows John and Margaret Sedore which date back to the eighteen century. I believe these are Phoebe parents. I have pictures of it. It is located up on top of the hill, buried in a lilac bush.

Do you have any information on Phoebe or Jacob Barnhart?

No relation to the Sedore's, but my Mother's family name is Bouckhout. Does the book tell any thing about her family?

The book is available from Willow Bend Books:

I checked my copy, and this volume only goes as far as Coonrad's grandchildren - basically births up to the 1850's.

Anna H. isn't listed.

I'm not sure you got the info you were looking for but, I have quite a lot on this family. I'm not sure you are aware of it but there were more than 3 sons. In addition to Leman, Noah & William, there were 2 daughters, Margaret and Fanny and a son, John.
Please contact me at for more info. I would be happy to share. Also, you can review my tree on ancestry.
Hope to talk to you in the near future.

Hello Paul Forhan,

Regarding your aunt Cecilia Sedore Forhan, I am related too. Cecilia's mother, Rose Hodgins, was my gr-gr-aunt.

Do you know when, where or how William Sedore died?

I have a studio photo which my mother believes to be Cecilia with her grandparents, Michael Hodgins & his 2nd wife Alice Dermody. The little girl looks to be about 4-7 years old.

I've heard that after William Sedore died, Rose was unable to care for daughters Cecelia & Alice Maud. Cecelia was enumerated with her Hodgins grandparents in 1911 census, and was an heir in Michael Hodgins' will.

I have another photo dated after WWII of Herbert Hodgins (grandson of Michael), his wife, his sister-in-law and two young men with very curly hair whom my mother says were named FORHAN.

I'd love to correspond with you about the Forhans & Sedores.
