I have been researching the Claing family for a few years.
I know there are several Claing families still listed in Canada that are probably connected to my family lines.
I am looking for any additional information on the family of Cleophas Claing and his wife Mathilde Lemire.I would especially like to find their date of marriage.Their daughter, Mary Malvina is my paternal grandmother.The family live in LaPresentation and St. Hyacinthe, Canada.They later moved to Connecticut, but may have returned to Canada to live their remaining years.My grandmother and several of her siblings married here in Windham, Connecticut.
Cleophas had at least three brothers...Victor who married Emelie Lemire, Christophe who married Odile Desrosiers and Francois.They are the children of Moise Clainge (Ste Rosalie) and Modeste Desmarais who married 27 June 1848 in St Hyacinthe, Canada.Moise had at least one brother, Joseph who married Zoe Roy (d/o Charles & Marguerite Lavigne) 28 October 1850.Moise and Joseph Clainge are the s/o Moise Clainge/Clennes and Marie Racine.
I know that my grandmother was born in 1896 in LaPresentation.She had several siblings including Antoine who married Laura Benoit in Connecticut in 1910, George who married Rose LeClaire then Eliza Benoit in Connecticut.He later married Bernadette LeBelle in Canada.Two sisters Laura and Yvonne also married in Connecticut.One married a Houle and the other a Lavigne.
Any additinal information would be greatly appreciated.
