Both of my 2x Great Grandfathers on my father's side worked in the mills in Holyoke Ma. My 2x Great Grandfather Thomas J. Leetin was born Bet. 1828-1831 in Manchester England, immigrated to NJ in 1851 and finally settled in Holyoke/Chicopee MA area in 1853. My other 2x Great Grandfather Prim Chagnon was born on July 3,1825 in Vercheres, Quebec Canada and immigrated to Grand Isle VT abt.1846 during the Great Migration. He settled in Holyoke Ma abt. 1873. Both men were Master Loom Fixers, but at different companies. I am so proud to be related to them.
