Canada Bas is Lower Canada or what is now is Quebec. I can find no places
spelled Ocomah or even that start with "Oc". And I found no county in Quebec
that sounded like that. Sorry.

Subject: [ONTARIO] Ontario Counties

Can anyone tell me if "Ocomah Co" is is Ontario? I can find an "Okemah
County" in Oklahoma but I'm looking for something in Ontario or Quebec
(Canada Bas?).

I'm not sure that's the correct spelling but that's how it's recorded on a
marriage record I have. I can find an "Oconto" in Frontenac County but I'm
not sure this is the right place. Supposedly the mother of the bride lived
around "Wolf's Head" which I believe is around Lake Superior but then there
is a "Wolfe's Island" near Kingston which I believe is in Frontenac County.

My Ontario geography is terrible so any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.
