8 Jan 1932, Globe and Mail newspaper has a marriage announcement (copied from Brantford paper on 7 July 1932)

Grace Deatta Rouleau, daughter of Mrs H. Rouleau of 76 Brock Street, married Robert Middleton, son of Mr and Mr B Middleton of North Park Street.  The marriage took place at the home of Mrs H. Rouleau (bride's mother).  There are some other family members mentioned... Rev. Roy Stevenson, cousin of the bride, from Chicago, assisted with the ceremony.  The bride's cousin Mr George Deklienhans of Kitchener, gave her away.  Bridesmaid was Miss Winona Rouleau, sister of the bride.

Francois-Xavier Rouleau Part 1

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)

   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,

Dennis Boudreau
