Monroe dit Sincennes or Munroe-dit-Sincennes of Masham, QUE and Ottawa, ON
I would like to know why the name was changed from Sincennes to Monroe-dit-Sincennes and eventually to Munroe only. Can anyone tell me the reason why the change.Where did Munroe/Monroe come from?????
Here are the families I am talking about:
Magloire Sincennes born 18 January 1820 in St-Jacques-L'Achigan, Quebec; Married Marie Priscille Vaillant in Aylmer, Quebec on 02 June 1846. Magloire died 05 November 1911 in Ste-Cécile-de-Masham, Quebec.
One of their sons, Magloire Monroe dit Sincennes born 03 May 1846 in Ste-Cécile-de-Masham, Quebec; He married Clémence Coderre and he died 23 January 1930 in Ste-Cécile-de-Masham, Quebec.
Magloire and Clémence's son Alphonse Monroe-dit-Sincennes born 08 July 1895 in Ste-Cécile-de-Masham, Quebec, married Rosa Pelleau-dit-Lusignan 25 April 1916 in Aylmer, Quebec.
Magloire and Rosa had a son Alphonse Darcy Monroe dit Sincennes born in Ottawa, Ontario 02 July 1918.
Going back to Magloire and Priscille, one of their other sons, Théophile Sincennes-dit-Monroe born 06 May 1851; Théophile married Mélina Philippe 01 June 1873 in Ste-Cécile-de-Masham, Quebec.
