Thank you much. You are an angle. I never thought about Marcelline's previous marriage with regard to these two children. She was a baby machine. I now need to trace three or four of her children supposedly born in the USA. You have to appreciate that Exurie born in L'acadie moved to Napierville, Lecolle, Henryville, St Hermeneguild and at one point to USA where he was godfather to William my grandfather and endded up in St Hermeneguild where he died. His father Francois fathered 23 children with three wives. Follow that??? Thanks once again you cleared my head on this matter.
