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. Celestin Cote. I’ve come to realize, that many of the brothers and sisters of one family, married brothers and sisters of another. There are many Cote/Martel marriages like this, which makes things get a little confusing. Continue reading
