Hello Janette: Philomène Cormier is my Paternal Great Grandmother.She was born in 1851 and died July 27 in Haute Aboujagane, N.B. where she is buried. I visited her and her husband's garve site on May 21, 2000 taking appropriate notes of the grave stone's inscriptions.
Philomène was the daughter of André Cormier, born Abt.1828 and Osithe Gallant, born Abt.1830.(I'm presently doing research on the Cormiers and could have addition info on André and his ancestors in the near future).
Philomène married Basile Belliveau on Feb 1, 1869 in Barachois, N.B.Basile was born July 1843 in Cap-Pelé, N.B. and died Nov 27, 1924 in Haute Aboujagane, N.B.Basile and Philomène were my father's paternal grandparents.
Basile and Philomène had 9 Children: - Philias, born Feb 3, 1870 and diedJul 31, 1931 - Emma, born 1881 and died 1968 - Alice, born Abt.1884 and died unknown - Élise, born Abt.1888 and died at very young age - Virginie, born Jan 26, 1892 and died unknown - André, born Abt. 1894 and died unknown - Alyre*, born Aug 31, 1895 and died Nov 9, 1958 - Philippe, born May 6, 1901 and died unknown - Stanislas, born Aug 26, 1907 and died Jan 24, 1931 * Alyre is my paternal grandfather.
It would appear that we are related, both being direct decendants of André Cormier and Osithe Gallant.By my calculations we are second cousins once removed.
