William Chiasson, Caraquet N.B. | Evelyn in Montreal

Jessica Morneau said:

I’ve been trying to find information about the Chiasson side of my family tree for days, and then I finally came across this site. I was just wondering if anyone had information about William Chiasson and his wife, I think it was Jillette; they would have been born somewhere in the 1800’s and I believe they lived in Caraquet N.B. If anyone has information about these people and any information going farther back then that I would really appreciate it.

Thank You

Information

Hello Jessica,

Guillaume Chiasson and Gillette Paulin (aka Gilette Chiasson) appear in the 1901 Canada Census online. They are living in Caraquet, Gloucester, N.B.(c-2/p.3)with their children: Guillaume, Louise, Joseph, Henri, Daniel and Arthur.

You can get the full lineage of this couple with accurate dates and a one page summary of the family on page 81 of the book “Les Familles de Caraquet” by Fidele Theriault (no direct relation of mine). It is a very useful genealogical dictionary for all families of northeastern New Brunswick and I suggest it only because I have found the book to be very useful – not because I have any connection to it.

Fidele Theriault can be reached at (email suppressed)

Let me know if you’d like more help,
Evelyn Theriault
