I need help with look ups in the general Montreal area and further south in the areas there for this man. Below I have listed all I know on him when he imigrated to the US was 1871 and he was in Chippewa Co. WI in the 1880 Census and I have him in 1900 in Barron Co WI.I need to find him in QC and all I have is he says Montreal on his daughter's birth certificate. See below for info I have. Can some one help me out here?
This Napoleon you have in 1880 Chippewa Co. WI married to Eloise Thibert is our man. The marriage is from the church records had written by the recorder there Notre Dame Nov 5, 1876 in Chippewa Co.
Here is what I have in FTM as there are differences to his dob.: 1880 Census Record Chippewa Falls, Chippewa Co. WI states Napoleon is a Mill Hand Born in Canada age is 30 so b. 1850 and both his parents were Canadian born. He is Montreal, Quebec, Canada born in Aug 1856. per the 1900 Census in Barron Co. WI, USA. The Family Bible says 1852.
His wife Eloise Thibert Gervais b. Sept 4, 1859 Ste Philemon, Chateauquay, Chateaugay Co,QC states in the family bible it is 1852 but she tried to erase a daughter's existence and she may have tried to do the same with her husband that she said died in WI in 1893 but I found alive in 1900 WI Barron Co. and only a few doors away from her and the girls at Andrew Nelson's as a Saloon Keeper. So even her 2 daughters kept the lie as well.
I did find court records on Napoleon and Eloise Jarvis in Barron co. over the building they bought jointly called the Cameron House after she got him out. She made it a respectable place after his gambling saloon business in the same building. I obtained them from the Archive records at the Univ. of WI at Stout location.They give no ages or heirs or any information we can use.
I will appreciate the list you have of all the Napoleons if you do not mind. He may be among them. I thank you in advance for all the trouble. Anita
