Currently, I am seeking information regarding Catherine (Traynor) Barry, James Traynor, Joseph Traynor, Alexander Traynor, George Traynor and Marie Emma (Traynor) Laurin.  These are the children of James and Mary Flavie (Benoit) Trainor (see 1870 census below).  This family group went by"Trainor" in the 1870 census and "Traynor" in the 1881 Canadian census.
