  3. Hello Melissa, Lena Petit was my grandfather’s younger sister. Lena and William were married 14th May 1914 at the Assumption Parish of Grand Falls in Grand Falls, New Brunswick. William listed his occupation as bridge builder on marriage registration and a new steel bridge was being built in 1914/15 to replace the bridge spanning the St John River originally built in 1860. Lena was youngest of the five children of Joseph Petit and Marie ‘Alice’ St. Amand. I will share all information that I have. Barry.

  4. My third great-grand-mother was Mary Ann Stacey. She was born on June 24th 1784. She married Joseph Lecuyer on May 31st 1808. Her father was John Stacey who passed away February 11th 1813. He was married to Marie Louise Ann Daudelin who passed away on April 2nd 1788. This was all in Caughnawaga. Apparently, John Stacey had 14 children. I’m wondering if this is the same Stacey family. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
