A Canadian Family

Natives, French Canadians & Acadians

They Passed Through Kahnawake: Pierre St-Cyr and Clara Desjardins

Message from Alice M. Azure Can anyone provide me with leads to more information about the St. Cyr name that appeared in the above list?  


The St-Cyrs are a family of French Canadian farmers who appeared in the 1901 census for Caughnawaga.

Caughnawaga genealogy, St.Cyr, Kahnawake, Sault-St-Louis

I believe them to be (not confirmed) the couple Louis-Pierre St-Cyr and Clara Desjardins who had a son named Albert St-Cyr who married Alice Desjardins (daughter of Joseph Desjardins and Virginie Chartrand) on July 1st, 1924 in Notre-Dame-du Perpetuel-Secours parish (Montreal, Quebec).

Louis-Pierre St-Cyr’s parents were Pierre St-Cyr and Josephine-Elisa Smith  while Clara Desjardins was the daughter of Francois-Xavier Desjardins and Marie-Louise Labelle. That couple  had been married at Montreal’s Notre Dame Church on January 20th, 1896.
