Belangers in Pawtucket Rhode Island
Joan Craig (unknown parents)
Joseph Roger Belanger (J Romuald Hertel & Blanche Dubois)
m. 7 April 1956, Pawtucket, RI.
The question is on their children.The St Matthews, Central Falls Baptism records show:
J Roger born 8 Oct 1956, Central Falls
Diane Blanche born 16 Oct 1967, Central Falls and baptized 29 October 1967 at St Matthews, Central Falls.
Then, the real odd entry is this:
Jo-Ann Crawford Belanger
Born 16 Oct 1937, Joseph Roger & Joan Craig
Bapt. 29 Oct 1937 (No Godparents listed)
This is a very strange entry. The parents of both children are the same. The parents were married in 1956. Diane was born 11 years later but Jo-Ann was born in 1937, 19 years before the marriage of her parents. Let's assume that the entry is in error and the year for Jo-Ann should have been 1967. The exact birth and baptism dates would indicate the two were twins?
Might 1967 actually be 1957?That would make more sense than 11 years after marriage???
