Dear Richard, Thank you for your information.According to my computer we are 4th cousins.I found that Ferdinand Perrier was baptized at St. Benoit on 15 August 1845.These are the brothers and sisters I have found:
Jean-Baptiste-Baptized at St. Benoit des Deux Montagnes on 26 February 1842
Marie (Caroline?)-Baptized at St. Benoit on 12 July 1850
Joseph (My great-great, grandfather). Born about 9 March 1853. Died on 20 April 1917 in Franklin, Town of Franklin, NY.Married 2 September 1873 at St. Andre Avelin, Papineau, Qc to Elmire Filiatrault.Moved to the US about 1892.
Marie Louise Josephine-Born 11 September 1863; Baptized 13 September 1863 at St. Andre Avelin.Residence listed as Hartwick? Ontario?
My descent from Joseph and Elmire is as follows:
Their daughter Marie A. Perrier married James Hodges on 13 September 1894 in Alderbrook, Franklin Co., NY
Marie and James had a daughter Florence E. Hodges who married Deforrest Dwyer in 1927 in Schenectady, NY.
Their son, Bernard Dwyer (my father) was born in Schenectady, NY in 1928 and married Charlotte O'Leary (my mother) on 8 September 1951.I hope this is helpful--it is good to find new cousins! Au Revoir, Daniel
