Per Lisa Young in an email 10/19/2001
Could this be the same Peter Procunier listed in this 1850
Ogle Co., ILL census?
1850 Ogle Co., Illinois census listing:
Peter Procunier, 30, farmer, Canada
Elizabeth, 24, Canada
Nancy M., 7, Canada
Henry, 2, Canada
Did Peter and Elizabeth relocate to the USA from Canada ending
up in Ogle County, Illinois around 1850?  If so they must have
moved back to Canada prior to their deaths!
