Fort Coulonge (QC) Lagaces | Evelyn in Montreal

Reader Query:

Hi Evelyn, I’ve just come across your site and love it! I too am a descendant of this wonderful family.

My ggrandfather was Damase Lagace son of Andre Lagace and Domatile Bertrand. Andre was a son of Amable Lagace and Christine Pelletier. I am looking for a death record and possible marriage(s) records for Damase. He was born on 25 May 1883 in Coulonge. He married Rose Mary Beatrice Durocher (daughter of Alderic Brien dit Derochers and Marie Francoise Caille dit Jasmin) on 2 July 1912 at Fort Coulonge. Damase and Beatrice went their separate ways sometime around 1920. Have you come across Damase in your research? Any help you can offer is appreciated.    Sharon Katarincic
