Searching for information about my great grandmother ,Angelique Mailloux( Marie Angelique? ) ,whowas born in rural Quebec ,about 1844.
She married my great grandfather Louis O.Dubreuil on Jan. 6 , 1866(location unknown)after his release from the Union Army in July of 1865.
As a boy (about1842) he moved to the U.S. from St. Charles sur Richelieu , Quebecafter his parents died.Helivedin the U.S.using the alias John Wood until their marriage and they lived therefor several years after their marriage.
Shereturned to Canada ( Quebec?)for the birth ofthe first child , Angelique Dubreuil ( Marie Angelique?)aboutOct. 26 , 1866.
Several laterchildren wereborn in theU.S. withthe only documentedlocationsbeing in northernMass.and southernN.H. Inquiriesand census searcheshaveyielded little informationinthese areas .
Children’s namesnot occurring in the paternalfamilyinclude Olivine , Modeste , Dolphise , Emma , Anna , Georgiana , Amanda and Cleophas Aurele Dieudonne.
About1878the family moved west , probably pausing in Minnesota ( ? ) , before settling in Manitoba , Canada.From this point we have records.
Any suggestions regarding possible search strategies,sources of information or indications ofher place of birth, their place of marriage ,orpossible relatives would be greatly appreciated. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
