The & sign means married. How ever many & signs is how ever many spouses.
These are the children I have by Marie Lepage: Marguerite & Antoine Couture, Marie & Antoine Fortier, Angelique, Charlotte & Jean Baptiste Boulet, Angelique, Francois, Michel, Pierre & Angele Pouliot & Marguerite Couture, Francois. They all differents birthdays so maybe the first Angelique and Francois died early coz I don't have their death dates yet.
Children by Marguerite Lacroix: Marie Anne &Joseph Laflamme, Isidore & Marguerite Goulet, Anastasie & Jean Baptiste Beaule, Louis, Marie Louise, Margurite & Charles Ruel & Prudent Talbot, Elizabeth, Antoine, Jean Baptiste & Anastasie Bocage & Luce Morin.
Does any of this sound right to you? I do have dates if you need them. Thanks DEB
