62 This information comes from "Pittsford's Second Century" by Jean Davies, Margaret Armitage, Lois Blittersdorf, and Jean Harvie.

"Pittsford became a popular destination for many people in the early 1900's. ... As most people did not have cars in the early 1900's several men ran jitney services,... Byron Powers had a Model-T Ford. Garage men often showed people how to drive,... Corinne Dennison took her driving lessons from Byron Powers in 1930. After Byron Powers closed his livery stable, the building was empty until his sons, Richard and Charles, reopened it as a garage. They sold Maxwells and Chryslers before ending up with Fords. Several different men ran it until 1939 when Richard Powers again took over, closing it during World War II. After the war he ran the garage until 1951; he sold the property to Ralph Hathaway in 1953. Byron Powers' livery stable, where Mike Blanchard now has his car sales, was one of the centers of town. The horses for the mail route were stabled there, and Byron's son, Charles, met the train everyday, picking up travelers through the area. After cars came in, Byron and his son, Richard, converted the livery to Powers Garage. Charlie Powers missed sleigh bells. "On a still night you could hear them for a mile across the hills. You could tell how fast they were coming, whether single or double team, and begin to look for a place to meet...., Sleigh bells have been replaced by exhaust of diesel trucks."

66 Virginia Osteyee believes that her Verbick ancestors may have migrated from Quebec, Canada. She remembers hearing a story that Mr. Verbick (Andrew?) did not allow his family to speak French when they came to America so that they would have to learn the English language and would integrate into society better. Verbick, Orin B.

67 Virginia Osteyee recalls that she met Sam during the Great Depression. At the time Virginia and her mother Allie Mae were living in a very small apartment on Washington Street in San Francisco near Polk and Van Ness. A Social Service worker visited them to ask if they could take in Allie Mae’s stepfather Sam who was then living on welfare. After looking around the small apartment the Social Worker remarked that the arrangement was not going to work out and she would have to find an alternative solution. Marston, Sam (I132)

70 [source = RootsWeb entry dated 27 Ma7 2003) OSTIGUY ANCESTORS LIVING IN FRANCE (By Roger Alphonse Ostiguy)
(Taken from "Memoires De La Societe Genealogique Canadienne-Francaise)
Jean Ostei (Ostiguy) and Catherine Chausse lived in the southwestern part of France in the Basque region, precisely in Arcangues (Basses-Pyrenees), in the diocese of Bayonne which was then part of the province of Guyenne, a township of 1160 inhabitants situated 8 kilometers from Bayonne according to the records of the Historical Society of Montreal, Quebec.

Place Married: It is estimated that it was in France where Jean Ostei and Catherine Chausse were married by the records of the Departmental Archive in basse-Pyrenees, France. 
Ostei, Jean (I871)
71 [source = RootsWeb.com, ID: 192995090, posted 27 May 2003] The following information from the Historical Society of Montreal, Quebec and researched by Roger Alphonse Ostiguy was translated from French to English.


Dominique Ostei or Hostey-Dit-Domingue (Ostiguy), born around 1722, the son of Jean Ostei and Catherine Chausse, are our first ancestors to arrive in Canada. It is unknown exactly when he arrived in Canada, however, it is estimated by the Historical Society of Montreal, Quebec, to have arrived around 1750. It is also speculated that he established residence, having land and a house in Saint-Mathias, Quebec on the Richelieu River in the surrounding of East Chambly, Quebec.


Before the nineteenth century, very few people residing in Canada could read and write; the spelling of surnames on church and public records was left to the fantasy of parish priests and notaries. Because the ancestor Dominique Ostiguy -Dit-Domingue was of Basque origin, conformity in spelling of his name was not easy. In various registers, one reads: Ostei, Hostey, Hostilly, Aostigui, Ostigui, Ostey, Ostilly and finally Ostiguy in the last century. A certain number of the descendants Dominque Ostei kept the name of Dominque as their surname.


Where came the first name Domingue given to our ancestor Dominique Ostei-Dit-Domingue? It is simple; he had for his first name Dominique, in Spanish Domingo, in French Domingue. The Dominican Republic's name itself is Saint Domingue in French


Dominique Ostei-Dit-Domingue, according to his marriage certificate, it is known that he was married in Canada on October 7, 1754 to Marguerite Parent in the parish of Pointe Olivier or La Conception De Chambly, Quebec, today called Saint Mathias, Quebec. Among the attending witnesses, the following signed were: Pierre Parent, Charles Legrain-Lavallee, Joseph Claveau, Francois Baret and Pierre Sancouci. The Parent family had settled there in 1724, originally from Montreal, Quebec.

The records of the 1765 census for the Government of Montreal shows that Dominique Ostei-Dit-Domingue (Ostiguy) and Marguerite Parent had two sons and a daughter, all aged under fifteen. During the spring of 1765, Dominique sowed eight acres of cereals on his eighty-acre farm. He was the owner of 2 oxen, 2 cows, 1 heifer, 1 horse and 2 hogs. A farmer of such considerable livestock and cleared land, at that time, was considered well-to-do. This colonist was also a prominent person in his community since he was captain of the army.


On March 29, 1777, the Governor General of Canada signed an order of the Legislative Council regulating the militia of the province of Quebec, specifying that all male citizens aged from sixteen to sixty were compelled to serve in the militia of the locality where they reside.
Around 1780, Dominique had the honor of being named Captain of the Militia.

The captain of the militia, nominated by the Governor General, became the head of the locality. His function required him to hold meetings of all the citizens of his jurisdiction the last two Sundays of June and the first two Sundays of July for militia purposes. He was responsible for the publication of edicts and regulations and the observance of these orders. He was also accountable for the maintenance of order in his circumscription. He often had to act as judge or arbitrator in certain cases at issue between citizens. The captain of the militia was the
representative of the governor and the civil authority.

An admirable paterfamilias, a prosperous farmer and a captain of the militia, Dominique Ostei-Dit-Domingue (Ostiguy) was also an eminent citizen in his locality during the last quarter of the eighteenth century. The Tabloid of the Militia of the Province of Quebec in 178?

On Sunday, October 6, 1754, parents and friends were reunited at Pierre Parent's home, father of Marguerite, for addressing the contract of marriage of the future spouses. As no lawyer was residing in Conception at that time, the only recourse was to the Office of Joseph Claveau, Lieutenant of the Militia in the area. He, being present and more or less educated, wrote the contract in his own way, mentioning the matrimonial conditions of the future spouses along with the witnesses.

The original contract was registered with the tribunal records of the Office of Lawyer Loiseau of Boucherville, Quebec on January 7, 1755.
