Re: did suzanne beaudin have child with william baker
Bonjour Jean Pierre
Yes, William and Susan(Suzanne are hard to find! I got to thinking that maybe Suzanne had a child by William before marrying someone else?We were looking at the ages of the children in Suzanne Beaudin's household( from Grande Riviere) to see if the ages and numbers might fit Suzanne having an extra child (John Baker) I've looked for these two in Maine. New Brunswick, etc. Still haven't found them.There were William Bakers in the Gaspe...in 1812 i see William and James Baker as fishermen with the ship the Eliza, but I think this isn't MY William? These are Bakers from Peninsula and that William had land in Sandy Beach.So many Gaspesians are trying to help me find William Baker but so far no luck!There's John Baker, captain of le Courier de Perce, the Horatio and le Francis from about1842-? but I think my John Baker who married Mary Smith is not that one?
I don't know that William was in the Gaspe, but certainly his son,John,was.
I'd love to be back there so I could visit research centres in the area and try to gather better information.
P.S. I got the name Mitchell when I married a Mitchell who is from Scotland!:-)
