We are wishing to find information on the family of Zoe Morissette and Edouard(Edward) Bernier who were married in St. Pie-de-Bagot, Quebec in 1842. We wish to locate their descendents because one of their children, a Joseph Alfred Athanase Bernier was the first parish priest at Oak Lake Manitoba. He was born in St. Pie-De-Bagot on May 02, 1857 and passed away on May 04, 1893 at the age of 36 at Oak Lake. The Roman Catholic parish was named in his honor at a later date. This church has now been closed for seven years. With much regret, the church now is being sold. Father Bernier is buried underneath the church and his body must be exhumed in order to sell the property. The Manitoba government is asking us to try and locate any living relatives regarding this matter.
