Reader Query: Martin/Lachances of …..
Did the Martins come from Normandy area of France? My great great grandfather was born in Canada and my great grandfather George Martin was born in New Hampshire. He married Diana Lachance from St Gabriel Quebec. I think Diana was born in 1879.
I only see one Diana Lachance baptism in Quebec between the years 1865 and 1880. The date is close however it is not in St-Gabriel (Lanaudiere region).
Marie Louise Diana LACHANCE (daughter of Joseph Lachance and Marie Maurel) born on October 19th, 1877 and baptized on October 21st, 1877 in St-Joseph Parish (Lauzon, Levis). Godparents were Philias Maureal and Philomene Letourneau.
