NOTES:

*Searched North Stukely parishes Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours & Ste-Anne-de-la-Rochelle and South Stukely; Eastman, Waterloo, St-Étienne-de-Bolton, Magog, Foster, Warden and Knowlton. No luck never found Malvina’s christening. The census of 1882 confirms birth since it states that she was 18. All 4 individuals which I found christenings were correct on the census. Since it was indicated that Napoleon was a trader, where were they between Feb 1863 & Jan 1865????

** Virginie was registered in the census as being born in the US & aged 11.

*** Charles was registered in the census as being born in the US & aged 7.

**** Kathy, based on your info, I have to assume that the Charles aged 7 must have died but could not find his passing away.
