Chouinard m. Theriault | Evelyn in Montreal

Cate just left this message in the comment box.

Hi Evelyn – wonderful site. I was hoping to find some links her to my ancestors, but I haven’t been able to. Most likely a different branch of the Theriault’s. I am a descendant of Lucile (Lucie Marie Louis) Theriault, who was married to Jooseph Hilaire Chouniard on Jan. 28, 1823. Lucile was born about 1805 in St. Jean Port Joli, L’Islet, Quebec, Canada. I believe her father’s name was Jacques Theriault, m. to Francoise Fortin dit Bellefontaine (b. 2/9/1765), but I cannot find any further information. Is it possible you have them in your database? Any help would be appreciated. If the connection is found, I would be very happy to share their descendants. Thank you.
