Reader Query: Days of Kazabazua (Alleyne, Pontiac)

My mother’s maiden name was Day, she grew up in Kazabazua Quebec, Her father’s name was Fred Day born around 1906. Would this be her relatives and what tribe would it be?


Louis Miller (son of Francis Miller and Mary Picard) married Velma Cecily Day (daughter of Fred Day and Sarah Anderson) on (1940s, exact date suppressed) in St.Antony Parish in Apple Hill (Glengarry County, Ontario).

Frederick Day (son of Henry Day and Margaret Ann Batten) married Sarah Elizabeth Anderson (daughter of William H. Anderson and Mary Carr) on February 21st, 1906 in the Anglican parish of in Alleyne in Pontiac, Quebec. The bride was from Aylwin.

The Day family in the 1901 census.

I am unable to make a direct link, but if you google Automated Genealogy (QU WRIGHT (#200) – Subdistrict: Aylwin C Page 5) you will see your Days here in the area you are expecting –

Day Henry M Head M May 3 1844 56
Day Marguaret F Wife M Dec 2 1846 54
Day Harry M Son S Jul 9 1877 23
Day John M Son S Apr 9 1883 18
Day Maria F Daughter S Jan 28 1885 16
Day Frederic M Son S Jun 2 1887 13

I clicked on the microfilm version and you will see they are listed as “English”.

For what concerns the Kazabazua connection, Wikipedia has a good entry on the area.

I hope these new names will allow you to keep searching.

Good luck!
