Antoine Ascelin & Elizabeth Commandant (Maniwaki) – Parents of Bernard Ascelin (m. Anna Simon) – Descendants

I’m looking for information on Antoine Ascelin(Asselin) who married a native woman named Elizabeth Commandant….I’ve looked everywhere for descendants or any type of information and there is a blank .… maybe you have some information you can share with me.  Debbie

I had come across this couple as the parents on the marriage records of their sons  Bernard Ascelin and Anna Simon of Maniwaki (Gatineau, Quebec), Joseph Asselin & Madeleine Beaudoin, and Charles Asselin & Celanire Desrivieres as well as their daughter Emilie Asselin who married Francois Desriviers.
