How old was Pascal & Catherine's son when he married in 1865?
Bear with me on this one, because your Amiots/Amyots (sometimes with the "dit" name of Villeneuve) may have been some place in the 1840s you never expected to find them!
About 1817 a Samuel Powers of New Hampshire, born circa 1784, joined his brother Thomas in Darlington Twp, Durham County, Ontario Canada.Sometime between 1817 & 1822 he decided to join his brother Nathaniel in Yonge Twp (eastern Ontario) where he was married to one CATHARINE DORAN "of Yonge Twp".By the late 1820s Nathaniel & Samuel Powers and their families had moved to Clarke Twp, Durham County Ontario.Samuel settled in what would become the Village of Newcastle.About 1830 or so Samuel & Catharine 'disappear' on me although their children remained in the area.
By 1841 a James and Pascal Amiot were in Bond Head , Clarke Twp, Durham County Ontario.(Bond Head in 1856 became part of the Village on Newcastle when that village was incorporated).One or both of them ran a hotel at Bond Head from at least 1842 until at least 1843, although it would seem that by 1851 James may have been dead (his widow reappeared in the area in 1881) and Pascal disappears completely on me.
In 1841, at Bond Head, James was married to Elizabeth DeLong (born crica 1824) and Pascal was married on the same day in the same place to one Agnes Reeves.Now, Doran is not a common surname and 1840sOntario, let alone one called Catharine Doranliving in the same place as a Pascal Amiot in acounty that was not exactly rife with Catholic Quebecois let alone one called Pascal Amiot.
Did Agnes Reeves die and Pascal Amiot of Bond Head/Newcastle marryCatharine Doran, widow of Samuel Powers of Newcastle and they moved to Pascal's old stomping grounds - St Eustache Quebec?
