Racicot/Monchamp Query

Reader Query

Evelyn/Madison,

My paternal grandmother was Jeanne Alice Ainee Racicot, born 15 May 1899, died 14 April 1926. She is reported to have been from St Constant, Quebec, and met my grandfather in Boston, MA sometime around 1924 or 1925. Her father was Louis George Racicot, of Boucherville, born 1 June 1868 and died 5 June 1888.

Im interested in determining if my paternal grandmother had any brothers and sisters (likely) if any of them might be still alive, or any of their children. In short, our family tree is undeveloped at this branch and I am interested completing it.

Sure would appreciate the help.

Bob

 


Hello Bob,

I have no connections to this family however I’ve listed some information below to help you in search. Remember to check back often or “subscribe” to the comments in case someone else answers your query.

 

1.)

Jeanne Alice Aimee Racicot was born on May 15th, 1899 and baptized on May 16th, 1899 in St. Constant Parish in Laprairie, Quebec. Her parents were Louis Georges Racicot and Rose Anna Montchamp. Her godparents were Anthime Vinet and Rose Vinet.

Jeanne’s father Louis-Georges Racicot was the son of Louis Racicot and Flavie Barbeau. A couple named Louis and Flavie Racicot can be found in the 1901 census as well as
1911 census for St. Constant.

Jeanne’s mother Rose-Anna Monchamp was the daughter of Francois-Xavier Monchamp and Aglae Patenaude. The couple were married on June 5th, 1888 in St. Constant Parish (Laprairie, Quebec).

 

2.)

In the 1901 census  there is a record that seems to be for Jeanne Racicot with her parents and siblings, as well as her paternal grandparents next door. [Note: Louis-Georges Racicot is living in 1901] In the 1911 census for St. Constant   I see only the grandparents. [Louis-Georges Racicot is living in 1901]
