Note from Evelyn: This couple are my grand-daughter’s ancestors through her father’s maternal line.
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).
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.
Still in 1901, Josephine Boucher was also single and living in Kahnawake with her parents (Alfred Boucher and Marie Allard). She was 15 years old and had 6 younger siblings in the family (William, Joseph, Anny, Agnes, Eva and Pierre). The Bouchers were also French Canadian farmers who had leased land from individuals in Kahnawake (separate post to follow). There is also a mention a few years later of an A. Boucher renting land in the Extract: Indian Affairs Annual Report (1903) Viau.
By 1911 Emile Bellefleur and Josephine Boucher had moved to La Minerne/Labelle Township, however Emile’s brother Wilbrod Bellefleur was still in Kahnawake with his wife Louise Kaneratine D’Ailleboust daughter of Francois-Xavier Aronhente-D’Ailleboust and Henriette Salois.
