Evelyn in Montreal: Botting m. Blais, Quebec City

Marion Calway wanted information about a Botting family who lived in Quebec around the 1820s.  Henry Botting married to Mary/Maria. I think Henry may have married again after Maria’s death. They have the following children: Eliza, Elizabeth Ann, Henry, Hannah, Mary (born 1807)
