I just came across your message. Hope it's not too late. I am a great-grandson of Emmanuel and Marie V. Mathieu Lepine. I am the grandson of Anna Lepine Durand, wife of Cleophas Durand. Emmanuel's parents were Marc Romain dit Lepine and Eleonore Leontine Brunelle. They were married on 11 Jan 1842 in Notre Dame Church in Ste. Hyacinthe, PQ, I have not been able to find his ancestors yet. Please let me know if you have. I well remember M'oncle Paul as Napoleon was called in the family.
