A Canadian Family

First Nations, French Canadians & Acadians

Richard m. Labrie of Riviere-Ouelle and Michigan (USA)


I am pleased to find these articles, my family is Antione(Antwine) Richard, and wife Harriett Labrie from Riviere – Ouelle. They are my grt Grandparents, their son Jos Antwine(Antione) is my Mom’s father,. They came to BayCity, Mich in 1885 and grt grandparents separated and returned to Que. from 1900-1910 separately. Some of the kids stayed here including my GrPa, and several we do not know where they moved to, a couple died in Mich. We think they moved back to Que.  I think that maybe Clopha, Geo and Frank and Wm may have went back to Que, maybe Geo to Ont. If some of you are from my family, would love to hear from you.

Also have a GrPa married to a Boucher and one to a Gamache, and a Miville. I am also on My Heritage but on free plan so have gotten matches from Cote,Levesque,Ouellette and several more, just cannot access their contact info on that plan. I have been educating myself with all this Que info. Sent to some of my other cousins in U.S. Nice too to see Celine Dion comes thru my Richard/Gamache grandparents. Always loved her now I know why. Actress Angelina Jolie comes from that line, and her Dad John comes thru my Dad’s side, the Rockefeller’s. Quite the tree, my Mom is from the Angell’s of Rhode Isl. also. She never knew all this info past her grandparents.

Information 2

Since you are trying to connect to relations in Quebec, I am listing the Richard/Labrie marriage and then siblings of Antoine.

Antoine Richard (son of Jean-Baptiste Richard and Adelaide Cazes) and Henriette Labrie (daughter of Bernard Labrie and Henriette Hudon) were married on August 20th, 1872 in Notre-Dame-de-Liesse parish in Riviere-Ouelle (Kamouraska) Quebec.

BMS2000 shows 14 children for this couple. Of these there were at least the following children who were married: Cyprien Richard & Victoria Dube, Jean-Pierre Richard & Marie-Arthemise Ouellet and then Emilie Richard, Caroline Richard & Charles Pruneau, Liguori Richard & Alphonsine Gagnon, Antoine Richard & Henriette Labrie, Alphonse Richard and Claire Dumont, and finally Francois-Eugene Richard and Marie-Claire Levesque.

You can find the Jean-Pierre Richard/Emilie Richard, and Francois-Eugene Richard and Marie-Claire Levesque couples in Kamouraska in the 1901 census (KAMOURASKA District 1901 Census Index – Automated Genealogy).
