They Passed Through Kahnawake: Emile Bellefleur and Josephine Boucher | Pt.1

Bellefleur Boucher Marriage Record

Emile Bellefleur (son of Zotique Bellefleur and Adele Bourdeau) married Josephine Boucher (daughter of Alfred Boucher and Marie Allard) on September 21st, 1903 in St-Francois-Xavier Church in Kahnawake (aka Caughnawaga).

1901 Census

Emile Bellefleur appears with his family in the 1901 Sault-St-Louis census district. The household was headed by his widowed mother (Adele Bourdeau) and included 19 year old Emile as well as his older brother Wilbrod (21 yrs.) , and his younger brother Arthur (17 yrs.) and his younger sister Ivonne (14 yrs.) The three oldest boys are listed as farmers.

She was 15 years old and had 6 younger siblings in the family (William, Joseph, Anny, Agnes, Eva and Pierre).
