A couple more items from the Catholic registers (which are listed as Brewer Mills, but seem to have entries from the surrounding area as well, all shuffled together.  The individual pages are not labelled as to which church they belong to)

Marie Chapue
born 13 July 1853
bapt 18 Sept 1853
parents - Maxime Chapue  Marie Scott
Sponsors John Davis  Christianna (Naddew?)

Priscille Chapue
born 04 Mar 1854
bapt 10 Sept 1854
parents - Maxime Chapue  Marie Scott
sponsors Mathew O'Connor, Ann Smith

Burial:
Nov 19th 1879 in the cemetery of Brewers Mills was buried
the body of Maxime Chaput.  Died on 17th age 52 (cancer)
Wit. Michael Tierney and James Tierney

And I can't help but think this old forum post has to be about your great uncles/cousins:

Thanks Sandra, but you laid out the groundwork, so kudos to you!

The entry of daughter Mary marrying in Brewers Mills in1878 was a lucky find, as an 1874 directory states that the population of Brewers Mills was 75, which leads me to believe all the Shappees/Chappue/etc there have a very high probability of being related.
