Canadian Look up - Joseph Seraphin Bourgeois
« on: Saturday 07 September 13 20:05 BST (UK) »
If someone could help!

Im looking into the marriage of

Joseph Seraphin Bourgeois (1839-1889) married Lea Crepeau (cannot find any dates on her)
Joseph and Lea got married on February 12 1861 at St. Alphonse Rodriquez, Quebec
Joseph also married Odile Mireault on Apr 21 1879 in St. Aphonse Rodriquez, Quebec but had no children with her.

Im looking for the names of the children Joseph and Lea had together.

If possible the birth/death of Lea.

Thanks

The marriage of Lea gave her parents as Joseph Crepeau and Denise Therrien.  This should be Lea and her family - parents and siblings - on the 1861 Canadian census.  It shows her place of birth as Mascouche.
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1861/jpg/4108813_00150.jpg

The Drouin collection has records for Mascouche St. Henri.  Given the age difference between Joseph and Denise on the census and the ages of the children the marriage to Denise might be a 2nd one.  The baptism for Eugene in Mascouche St. Henri on 20 July 1849 shows parents of Joseph Crepeau and Jean Marie Allard.  The baptism for Loe Crepeau (that's the way it's indexed by ancestry) at the same church was on 24 Sept 1844 and parents given as Jean Crepeau and Loe Allard.  Baptism for Jean Alphonse Crepeau on 06 May 1841 shows parents of Joseph Crepeau and Louise Terison (?). 

Added:
In 1871 the difference in age between Joseph and Denise has disappeared.

This I believe is the family for Lea, Thank you so much! At least it gives me an idea of a birth date for her which I had nothing for. I haven't researched her side of the family yet minus I knew the parent's names I'm working on her husbands side at the moment. Bourgeois.

Sandra gave me the info on the children in 1871, but I have since discovered through a relatives family tree that was done years ago there are 5 more children to this family that I am very curious about names are:

Francois
Louis
Urgel
Leon
Olive

Just trying to confirm they exist and looking for birth dates for them.

Thanks again for your help.
