Evelyn in Montreal: Michaud m. Lagace (Van Buren, 1851)

Down in the comments section of another post, Beth said:


I’m trying to find if Jean Michaud and Rose Lagace (married Aug 4 1851) had a son Joseph who grew up to marry a Sophie St. Pierre. Please let me know if you have any info ?  Beth


I’m sorry, Beth, I don’t have this couple’s offspring. Although they are French Canadians I`m presuming they settled down in the USA? Perhaps one of our American readers with access to American sources will be able to help you.

Here is the information I do have in my database:

Jean-Marie Michaud m. Rose Lagace (Mignier) on 4 Aug 1851 in Van Buren (Aroostook ME USA). Jean-Marie’s parents were Jean Baptiste Michaud and Elisabeth Langlais. Rose was the daughter of  Germain Lagace and Marie Leclerc.

  4. Thank You for the information. I am looking to confirm or eliminate Jean and Marie Rose (Lagace) as his parents. I’ve some info pointing toward them as being his parents but in later census records he is not listed as living in Jean and Rose’s household. There is also a record of a Joseph son of Jean and Marie Rose dying at the age of one. If anyone has anymore info it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You

    • His birth certificate would state his parents. The Drouin collection that I gave you above will get to that information.

  5. Hi My mom is a Monique Lagace and her dad was a Joseph Lagace. They are a big family but I don’t know if they are who you are looking for.
