Hi, It has been awhile but I'm trying to clarify my great grandmother, Marie Eva Demers, siblings. I do have some more information since I last wrote. However, the information brings more questions then answers.
1861 Antoine Demers Gender: Male Age: 28 Birth Year: 1833 Birthplace: Lower Canada Marital Status: Married Home in 1861: Mégantic, Canada East Religion: Catholique
Louis Demers Male 6 1855 Lower Canada Single Philomene Demers Female 4 1857 Lower Canada Single Lana Demers Female 2 1859 Lower Canada Single Lida Demers Female 1 1860 Lower Canada Single (N0 mention of an Edmond 1858-1863 or Marie 1858-1865 as stated by some people)
1871 Antoine Demers Age: 40 Birth Year: abt 1831 Birth Place: Quebec Marital Status: Married Religion: Catholic Province: Quebec District: Mégantic Subdistrict: Halifax North Philomene Demers 26 WIFE Louis Demers 15 Philomine Demers 13 Anna Demers 11 (Lana in 1861 census) Délida Demers 10 (Lida in 1861) Caroline Demers 7 Breudauné Demers 3 (stated as a male but a Julie shows uup in next census for this date.) Mathildé Demers 11 months
1880 Anthony Demar Home in 1880: Westbrook, Cumberland, Maine Age: 49 Estimated birth year: abt 1831 Birthplace: Canada Spouse's name: Sarah Demar (this is second wife Celina Fortin m.1875 Lewiston, Maine) Age 29 Phebe Demar 23 Anna Demar 21 Lydia Demar 19 Catie Demar 17 Julia Demar 12 (where Breudaune in 1861 is shown as male) Matilda Demar 10 John Demar 8 (knew his son Jason very well) Mary Demar 7 (my great grandmother) Eva Marie Joseph Demar 3 by Sarah (Celina Fortin) Mary Demar 2 by Sarah Edward Demar 2m by Sarah
John Demar stated above died in Sanford, Maine July 12,1944 and the record states age 78y 1m 9d. This would have placed his birth as 1866 instead of 1872.
My great grandmother and John were very close. Why such a difference in his year of birth in census versus death record is unclear.
