French ** Chasing a hunch - help reading occupation and where they went.
« on: Sunday 03 February 19 15:23 GMT (UK) »
Hello I am chasing a long shot in the never ending search of my great great grandfather.

I am trying to find what happened to the below people, and particular where Maurice Mathis came from, any brothers etc. Any help would be fantastic. Everything is French etc, the names and dates for people don't match and one daughter seems to of married 3 times in a few years?
1896 census - Saint-Denis, Seine, France
I have - Household
Maurice Mathis - 47
Philoméne Mathis - 57 (birth name Arthénac) married 1874 
Marie Mathis - 29
Marguerite Mathis - 16

I have Maurice parents from marriage record of him and Philomene as Maurice Mathis and Marie Marguerite Fournier.

Any help at all please, would be very grateful. Thanks :-)

Patron, modiste and couturiere. They all worked in the fashion industry.

Thanks Mike, finding the whole French looking records very hard.. Hopefully someone might feel generous to find out where they went, and where the father came from  ;D

Maurice was born in Paris 7 february 1849, 7 th arrondissement , Philomene in St Jean d'Angely, Charente -inférieure , born 20 july 1839 (parents Jean Baptiste Arthenac  died in St Julien de l'Escap and Suzanne Giraud died in St Jean d'Angely).

Unfortunately, the registers of this period disappeared in a fire .
