Hi Chris, this information I already had. I was hoping that you had first hand sources like his birth certificate or his mariage certificate.I would like to see on them whether the name of his parents are really Joseph Delorme and Marie Albert. Why? Because he lists on his naturalization certificate and the 1900 census his birth date as being the 18th of March 1848 in St-Malo. If he is the son of Joseph Delorme and Marie Albert, although he would have been born on the 18th of March, it would be on the 18th of March 1846 and not in St-Malo but in Plouasne about 50 km away. Thanks for your answer anyhow!
