Hi, I am helping a friend Jean Theriault with his family history. (he doesn’t have a computer) Jean was born in St. Godefroi, Bonaventure Co., Quebec. As far as we can tell the family and others that married into it (most common Larocque & Duguay(on both his parents side)) were residents of New Brunswick and Quebec for several hundred years.
We can follow his family line quite easily until we get to the parents of CHARLES THERIAULTwho was born 07 Feb 1813 in Paspebiac, Bonaventure, Quebec.He married (1) SOPHIE AUBUT 23 Nov 1841 in Paspebiac, Bonaventure County, Quebec.She was born 07 Sep 1818 in Paspebiac, Bonaventure, Quebec, and died 10 Jul 1843 in Paspebiac, Bonaventure, Quebec.He married (2) MARIE EMILE DUGUAY 04 Nov 1846 in Paspebiac, Bonaventure County, Quebec, daughter of LAZARE DUGUAY and MARIE DELAROSBILLE.She was born 25 Dec 1825. Jean is descended from Charles and Emile’s son EPICARIE-ANTOINE THERIAULT (who married Rachel Larocque).
We understand that CHARLES THERIAULT’s (born 07 Feb 1813) fatherwas CHARLES THERIAULT who married ANNE DICKSON, daughter of JEAN DICKSON and ELIZABETH LABRASSEUR. Our confusion comes with Charles’ father. We had him as JOSEPH THERIOTwho married MARIE Francoise MELANSON. We have seen a couple of references to Joseph Theriot married to MARIE Blanche MELANSON. We were hoping someone might be able help us with this or give us some suggestions on how to figure out this.
