Perrin, Charles m. Rivest, Odile | Evelyn in Montreal

Archives

According to the “Drouin bleu”, their marriage took place on Oct. 30, 1874, in St-Sulpice (Montreal?). I would like to 1- Ascertain if Charles-françois is the son of Dieu-Donné Perrin, who was married to Marie-Eulalie Castonguay, in Notre-Dame de Montreal on Jan. 6, 1826. 2- Know if Charles-François has a son named Hector (he is my great-grandfather). Hector married Georgine Senecal on June 1m, 1886, in St-Cesaire. Thank you for any insight. Colette Tremblay

Information

Charles Perrin was the son of Dieudonne Perrin and Marie Eulalie Castonguay. He married Odile Rivet, (daughter of Charles Rivet and Julie Hamelin) on Octobert 30th, 1854 in St. Sulpice, L’Assomption, Quebec
Notes: Dieudonne Perrin already deceased at time of his son’s marriage.
Odile was a minor, while Charles was of age.
