Joseph Emmanual Delasandro sounds Italian rather than Spanish (-> D’Alessandro). Also on ancestry.com John Mirer/Meyer/Muerer’s wife’s name is spelled Mary Ann Dalessantis (-> De Santis). I doubt he was Spanish.

I wonder if any of these people appear on census or other records. Where they did come from?

I dunno, but I am pretty sure that Mary Ann Dalessantis/Delassanders/Dellasanntis had Italian ancestry. It’s also very unlikely that a Spanish man from Andalusia moved to Canada in mid 1800s

*early 1800s

Just about as likely as an Italian. What I meant was, I wonder what is the source for these people’s existence? Where did the makers of these family trees get the information?

BEHR is a Jewish surname originated from Germany

He is very European looking.

He looks like a concoction of every European ethnicity all mashed up as one – Dutch, Irish, German, Italian, Portuguese, French, Swiss, Serbian, Turkish…
