I am trying to locate the birth record of my great grand mother Lillian Hellena Faubert (she was a Masson, Masseau, Massaw in Ontario).
The family has a date of birth for her - circa 1873. I believe that she was born in the Eastern Townships, maybe around the Huntingdon area. I believe that the family name was Faubert Dit Masson and when they moved to Ontario the name Faubert disappeared and it became Masson or different spellings thereof.
Lillian Hellena Masson was married in St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church, Lindsay, Ontario in 1892 and she listed her parents as Jean Masson and Angelique McCallum.
I believe that Jean Evangeliste Faubert and Angelique McCallum were the grandparents of Lillian since Jean Faubert was married in St. Martine, Chateauguay, Quebec on November 27, 1837 and Lillian was born 36 years later - therefore she must be the daughter of one of the sons but which one?
However I have not found a marriage record of this couple so maybe she did not know who her parents were and listed her Grandparents.
I do know that Lillian had two sisters Catherine (Known to the family as Aunt Kate) and Mary Jane.
I have no information on the family as to who the parents really were or were they were born and baptized.
This has been a problem for the family and we hope to get it solved one day.
