I am trying to find more information on my LaDrig< Ladrigue The earliest record I have of our family is a marriage record sent to me by a cousin.
the marriage book. The marriage date Aug.05-1866 St-Zotique Soulanges: Ephrem Rodrigue majority son of David Rodrigue(day labourer)and Elisabeth Potvin, married to Philomene Benoit majority daughter of deceased Francois Benoit(day labourer)and Henriette Deschamps.In presence of Alexandre Gabrion father to bride and Benjamin Duval served as father to bride.Only father to bride sign with us Alexandre Gabrion. comment by cousin:"Don't mention nothing if any Rodrigue were at the wedding or who were witnesses for his side.What baffle me was mention of the father until check the book."
Francois Benoit(parents Francois&M-Louise Thanase)married Oct.25-1836 St-Polycarpe to Henriette Deschamps (parents Louis&Josephte Leger). Henriette Heneault(that is a dit name for Deschamps) widowed of Francois Benoit married Nov.09-1846 St-Polycarpe to Alexandre Gabrion widowed of Angele Bray. Philippe Gabrion (Pierre&Marie Sabourin)married June 14-1842 Les Cedres to Angele Bray(Guillaume&M-Joseph Lalonde) another comment, "So Alexandre must have been stepfather to Philomene Benoit.Still weird to me how the priest wrote that down and "No Dah"for Ephrem."
Do anyone have anything on this family? Sue Bouchey
