Hope this reaches you. The Rodier forum on Genforum isn't that active any more it seems. My husband is desperately searching for his numerous Rodier roots (perhaps related, perhaps unletated to one another).
Anyhow, here is some datato start with :
My husband's name is André Vincent.
His parents are William Vincent & Yolande Berthiaume.
William's parents were : Sabin Vincent & Victorine Rodier.
This Victorine Rodier's father was : Louis Rodier (Apr 1847 - Jan 1941), married twice, it seems, André's ancestor being probably the second wife, Victorine Roireau Laliberte (1864 - May 1946).
This Louis Rodier's first wife was Lucie Breton, or Lucie Elie Breton.
To complicate it a little more, I found in my search an Albina Rodier, daughter of Louis Rodier & Lucie Elie; this Albina married Arthur Hardy and they in turn had a daughter, Lucie Hardy, who married Jeremie Rodier, son of Louis Rodier & Lucie... Breton.
!!! That's mystery number one.
As to who our Louis Rodier's parents were ??? ... Mystery number two. how many Louis Rodier do we have at this stage ... But there is more coming ...
Now, le's go back to André's mom, Yolande Berthiaume :
Her parents were : Ovila Berthiaume (1899 - 1981) & Sophie Augustine Tetreault 1893 - 1961).
Both parents are half Rodiers :
A) Ovila Berthiaume's mother was Malvina Rodier, daughter of Charles Rodier & Edwige Ruel. This Malvina married Isaac Berthaume on Sep. 11 1883 in Ste Cecile de Milton. She was born Dec. 20 1860, d Jul 7 1944 in Longueuil. Can't get any further back because can't find anything on Charles Rodier & Edwige Ruel. Among Charles & Edwige's other childre were : Mathilde, born 1858 in Ste Cecile de Milton; Jean-Bte,m1 Henriette Hasen(?) 1877; m2 Louise Beauregard. Charles-Damien, m Marie Luce Alexina Dupont (1878); Joseph (?) m Louise Morin.
These Rodiers may not be related to the above or to the following ...
B) Sophie Augustine Tétreault's mother was ... guess : another Victorine Rodier, daughter of ... guess : Another Louis Rodier & Sophie Parent. She married Toussaint Tétreault, III, (or Tetreau) Oct. 9, 1883 in St. Liboire. We have nothing on this other Louis Rodier, nor on Sophie Parent - nothing like searchin "Parent" on the web!.
Two Victorines and at least two Louis, and God knows how many marriages, all in the same area. Mystery number 3.
This does make a long story, doesn't it ?
I thought the best thing to do would be to share it with Rodier cousins and see what happens... I hope someone can help - feel free to share with others like Georges if he's still around.
Just so you know, André and I are both blind persons. We try our best to find materials on our own, but the great big genealogy books are not accessible to us.I got some help from the church of Ste Cecile de Milton, but not everybody is ready to take the time and help search the registers.
But we'll go on trying everywhere we can.
André and I live in Longueuil, Quebec, near Montreal.
