Herefordshire / Rev Van Blerk
« on: Saturday 02 May 20 17:56 BST (UK)  »
Seeking a death record or 1901 census mention for a Rev. Felix Van Blerk, parish priest who served at the former Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Ross-on-Wye in 1897-1898.  This info from Bernard Kelly’s Historical Notes on English Catholic Missions.  Any information as to his death or whereabouts would be appreciated after the years indicated.  He was originally from Belgium and had served in several Catholic parishes in Maritime Canada. This was as far as I could trace his paper trail.
Thanks in advance for any help in finding him.

Hi Beverly,

I found this family group in the 1880 Census of Rhode Island (living in Lincoln, RI, next town up from North Providence wherein can be found Greystone village).  I live in the neighboring village to Greystone, and wondered if this might be the family you're seeking.  Lincoln is next door to Central Falls, RI.

Family Number 171

REDMAN, John, 42y, head of family, born England (works in Sayles Bleachery)
REDMAN, Hannah, 40y, wife, born England
REDMAN Edgar, 19y, son, born New Jersey (sic)
REDMAN, Ada, 14y, daughter, born New York (sic)
REDMAN, John Jr., 9y, son, born New York (sic)
REDMAN, Frank, 7y, son, born New York (sic)

and also:

Edgar REDMAN, 27y, son of John & Hannah (France) Redman
Mary A. THORNLEY, 22y, daughter of Squire & Jane (Tuthell) Thornley
m Lincoln, RI 25 Dec 1886

Frank REDMAN, died Central Falls, RI 28 Apr 1923; 45y, 9 mos, 29d; son of John & Hannah (France) Redman; born New York, NY June 29 (No Year); place of death 78 Rand St, Central Falls, RI; single; occupation: chemist making blue dye; burial Moshassuck Cemetery, Central Falls, RI; cause of death: suicide by asphyxia from illuminating gas.

If you can access Family Search, here's the link to his death record:

John REDMAN, son of John & Hannah (France) Redman; d Cranston, RI 29 May 1935 (64y) [State Hospital of Acute Lobar Pneumonia]; born 1870; single; 64y; occupation: janitor; burial Moshassuck Cemetery, Central Falls, RI

Hannah Maria (France) REDMAN, daughter of Thomas and Sarah France, died 78 Rand Street, Central Falls, RI 29 Oct 1924 (84y); born England November (No Year Listed); widow of "Frank" Redman; buried Moshassuck Cemetery, Central Falls, RI; cause of death: broncho-pneumonia, chronic myocarditis and senility; informant: daughter, Mrs. Edwin Bamford (this would be Ada Redman)

Ada (Redman) BAMFORD, daughter of John & Hannah (France) Redman; died 112 Rand St. Central Falls, RI 21 Dec 1930 (65y, 7 mos, 14d); born New York City, NY 6 May 1865; wife of Edwin Bamford; buried Moshassuck Cemetery, Central Falls; cause of death cerebral hemorrhage.


You mentioned Frank was your ancestor, yet he died single  This doesn't seem to be the correct family but they were only Redmans I could find in Central Falls, RI fitting the description you gave in your primary post.  I don't know how Sanford, Maine comes into play, but perhaps they came through New Brunswick to the USA?  The family did live in New Jersey and New York (where their children were born) before coming to Rhode Island.  Hope some of this helps.

   xxi- François-Xavier,  b St-Nicolas, QC 13 Aug 1846.

   xxii- Virginie,  b St-Nicolas, QC 11 Apr 1849.

I could be wrong but based on my over 40 years genealogical expertise, I think this is the François-Xavier you’re searching for based on three things :

1- He was born in AUGUST.

2-He was born of his father’s SECOND marriage.

3-He appears with his widowed mother and brother Nazaire and sister Virginie in Halifax South,  Mégantic County, Québec in the 1861 census; but is gone from this family unit in the 1871 census of the same place, leaving but his mother, brother and sister in that household.  Perhaps he went west to Ontario and Manitoba.   

1861 census Mégantic County (Halifax South) (pp 1-2)

Mary Roulo (farmer), widow, 54y
Nazaire Roulo, 20y
Francis Roulo, 14y
Virginie Roulo, 11y

1871 census Mégantic County (Halifax South, Family 106)

Nazaire Rouleau, farmer, 27y
Marie Rouleau, widow/mother, 66y
Virginie Rouleau, sister, 22y

Hope this helps,

Hello K. Shaw and others responding on this question,

I also saw a similar question as this on Rootsweb, and think I may have the answer to your question.

First, the Francois Rouleau, son of Ignace and Rosalie (Fontaine) Rouleau is not your man.  He
was born at St-Jean-Chrysostôme, QC on 5 July 1849, and married at St-David (Lévis), QC on 30 Jun 1884 with Léa St-Laurent, daughter of Louis and Anastasie (Lamothe) St-Laurent.  This François died before 1890, as his widow remarried at St-David, QC on 28 Jan 1890 with a Hyacinthe-Elisée Dionne, son of Honoré and Mathilde (Guimond) Dionne, and widower of Célina-Elmire McClure.

Not to be discouraged, however, as I have another candidate for you. You mentioned that your Francis Rouleau was born in AUGUST 1848; the only other François-Xavier Rouleau that I could find was born in August but two years earlier in 1846.  Remember, all information was given by surviving members of the family, not by the deceased themselves, and they could have been off by a year or so.

The François-Xavier Rouleau I found was born at St-Nicolas, QC on 13 August 1846, the son of Michel Sauvage dit Rouleau and his SECOND wife, Marie Thibault.  I have the family traced back as follows  (see part 2)
