Evelyn in Montreal: Cote & Martel, Brome County

Query: I have Cote and Martel in my line as well, and many questions (gaps to fill in).  Have you heard of a Celina Cote who m. Victor Martel (supposed to be her cousin, I think). She was his second wife. They married December 7, 1908, in Mansonville (I believe). His first wife, was Ida Castonguay. I have a picture of Victor and Celina at their farm in Mansonville, around 1908. I know who Celina’s parents are, but not Victor’s. I am trying to figure out how they are cousins. My mother knew Celina, and said she married a cousin.  My great grandmother was Sophie Martel m. Hipolite (Paul) Royer. Sophie’s sister Rosalie Martel m.

There are many Cote/Martel marriages like this, which makes things get a little confusing. Continue reading
