The King/Roy family primarily documented herein came to the U.S. in the mid 1840's from the area around Repentigny, just north of Montreal, moving to Clinton and Essex County, New York, Lowell, Massachusetts and Baraga County, Michigan The Gamache family of North America has been on the continent for over 300 years. Nicholas Gamache, who immigrated to New France ca. 1670's was the patriarch and virtually all North Amercian Gamaches can trace their ancestry to this one man. Our Horzen family started in this country in November 1904 with the arrival of Frank Horzen who immediately located to Sheboygan, Wisconsin
Our Krause family started in North America in the 1880's with the arrival of Benjamin Krause in New York in the early part of the decade, gravitating immediately to McKeesport, Pennsylvania Max Azen was the immigrant ancestor of our Azen family - arriving in Boston in 1906 with his wife and nine children to escape pogroms in the Baltic region of the Russian Empire. Max established a thriving fur business in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. xxx
