My Great Great Great Grandfather was Narcisse Payan dit St. Onge who was born/baptised October 3, 1819 in St. Charles sur Richelieu (or St. Athanase) in St. Hyacinthe,Quebec, Canada.His age was calculated from his marriage register dated 3/16/1848.He was married to Rose (possibly Rosalie) Normandin on that date at Mont St. Gregoire, Iberville County, PQ, Canada and died sometime between 20 Mar 1886 - 18 Nov 1917.He is probably buried in the St. Joseph cemetery in West Warwick, Rhode Island as is his wife Rose although they were not buried together.She had been married twice before her marriage to Narcisse - her first husband was Jean baptiste Derome dit DesCarreaux and they were wed on 18 Dec, 1833 at St. Athanase, Iberville, PQ, Canada.Her second husband was Antoine Lareau and I don't have a specific wedding date but it might have been 7/4/1843 at Beauharnois.I mention all of this because GGG Grandmother Rose died 18 Nov 1917 and is buried next to a son, Joseph Larrow (anglicized spelling for Lareau)in Section C of St. Joseph Cemetery in West Warwick - Gough Avenue ... `15 ft away from Pole #104'.I visited this site about 5 years ago and all was as I've stated above.Incidentally, that St. Joseph Cemetery is located on Gough Avenue near Payan Street in West Warwick.I hope to be able to find out if Payan Street was named after GGG Grandpa Narcisse Payan dit St. Onge but that's in the future at some point.If you have any related information, please contact me at UncleBud2@cox.net .(Rose had 22 children so there are loads of related Derome, DesCarreaux, St. Onge, Normandin, Payan, Lareau, Bessette, Benoit - and many others - grandchildren +++++.)
I am Armand H. Demers,Jr. and was born of Doris Genereux and Armand H.Demers, Sr.; my mother, Doris was born of Emiliana Benoit and Jean Baptiste Genereux; Emiliana was born of Zoe-Angelina Bessette and Achille Benoit; Zoe-Angelina was born of Zoe Payant dit St. Onge and Joseph Bessette and Zoe Payant dit St. Onge was born of Rose (Rosalie) Normandin and Narcisse Payan dit St. Onge which is where we started here.I trust that I have not confused the issues here.I go back further but will hold off on that until you contact me since your notice is over 4 years old and you might no longer be interested.
We are probably cousins of some kind so please contact me.
