Doucet Alexander Marie. A Canadian Family Headstones


A la memoire de Alexandre Doucet decede le 23 av. 1931 age de 81 ans & de Marie Doucet decede le 27 jan 1920 agee de 75 ans. RIP Translation: In the memory of Alexandre Doucet who died on April 23rd, 1931 at the age of 81 and Marie Doucet who died on January 27th, 1920 at the age of 75. Rest in Peace.

Genealogy Notes:

I came across the couple memorialized on this tombstone while researching my own grandmother Elizabeth Doucet(m. Joseph Lagace) who is the daughter of a couple named Alexandre Doucet and Marie Roy. Both couples lived in the same approximate area and time period, and since my ancestors are also referred to as Alexandre and Marie Doucet, I am trying to untangle the two family trees. I would greatly appreciate help from anyone familiar with either of thse two lines.

This would seem to be the couple Alexandre and Marie Doucet who were married on November 19th, 1872 in Bathurst, New Brunswick in Ste-Famille Parish in the presence of James and Helene Doucet.

  1. Hi,

    The best Acadian geneologist is Mrs. Rosalie Guitard from Petit Rocher, New Brunswick. Here is her email (Note from Evelyn: removed for privacy – contact Lina for further information)

    Essentially, what I have learned is that Germain Doucet was the first Doucet in Canada. Germain had 2 sons who created the 2 lines of Doucet in Canada (now descendants are not related).

    But Rosalie can tell you the whole story!

    Good luck,
    Lina Doucet
    (Bathurst New Brunswick)

    • Thank you for your message, Lina, and the information.

      In my case my problem was never with the furthest back Acadian lines for which I have researched in Stephen White’s Dictionnaire, but with the connection from my branch to the main line. Since writing this post I have successfully made that connection wtih the help of a branch that is closely related to mine.

      Thanks for the heads up about Mrs. Rosalie Guitard, however I removed her email address for privacy reasons. It can only be listed if she approves, because “spam bots” may pick it up and then bombard her with unwanted mail!

      Thanks again,

  2. My maternal grandmother was Mary Martha Doucet born in 1898 in Bathurst, NB. Per my mother, I know there were approx 5 children in the family. All females had the first name of Mary, and I believe they were generally addressed by their middle name. There was only one brother, Simon. I would much like to learn the name of her parents and any other info on the family. Mary Martha Doucet married in Canada and emigrated to USA in 1925. I am 52 y/o and live in Louisiana, USA.

    Note from Evelyn: Corresponding privately.
