Cote & Martel | Evelyn in Montreal

Query: I have Cote and Martel in my line as well, and many questions (gaps to fill in).  Have you heard of a Celina Cote who m. Victor Martel (supposed to be her cousin, I think). She was his second wife. They married December 7, 1908, in Mansonville (I believe). His first wife, was Ida Castonguay. I have a picture of Victor and Celina at their farm in Mansonville, around 1908. I know who Celina’s parents are, but not Victor’s. I am trying to figure out how they are cousins. My mother knew Celina, and said she married a cousin.  My great grandmother was Sophie Martel m. Hipolite (Paul) Royer. Sophie’s sister Rosalie Martel m.

Perrin, Charles m. Rivest, Odile | Evelyn in Montreal


According to the “Drouin bleu”, their marriage took place on Oct. 30, 1874, in St-Sulpice (Montreal?). I would like to 1- Ascertain if Charles-françois is the son of Dieu-Donné Perrin, who was married to Marie-Eulalie Castonguay, in Notre-Dame de Montreal on Jan. 6, 1826. 2- Know if Charles-François has a son named Hector (he is my great-grandfather). Hector married Georgine Senecal on June 1m, 1886, in St-Cesaire. Thank you for any insight. Colette Tremblay


Charles Perrin was the son of Dieudonne Perrin and Marie Eulalie Castonguay. He married Odile Rivet, (daughter of Charles Rivet and Julie Hamelin) on Octobert 30th, 1854 in St. Sulpice, L’Assomption, Quebec
Notes: Dieudonne Perrin already deceased at time of his son’s marriage.
Odile was a minor, while Charles was of age.
