They Passed Through Kahnawake: Joseph Laramee and Philomene Boudrias, Alphonse Laramee and Victorine Guerin
Joseph Laramee (son of Jean Baptiste Laramee and Olive Pitre) married Philomene Boudrias (widow of Joseph Mallette) on March 4th, 1889 in Ste-Philomene Parish in Mercier. At the time of the 1911 census, they were living in Caughnawaga with their children Joseph, Cecille, Lucenne, Arthur, Edouard.
Another household with the same family surname in the Sault-St-Louis census consisted of the couple Alphonse Laramee and Victorine Guerin, and their children Aime, Alphonce, Leonie, Bernadette, Jeanne, Gabrielle and Jean-Baptiste. Continue reading
Following some research I did awhile back for Carmen Vieau about her father’s belief that their family was in some way connected to Caughnawaga, I decided to list the Caughnawaga-related Viau marriages that I have from their parish records, as well as some links to related census records.
The first Viau couple that I identified who were associated with Caughnawaga for many years consisted of Alexis Viau (son of Joseph Viau and Felicite Briault) who had married Theotiste Guerin (daughter of Jean Guerin and Marie Louise Marotte) on February 14th, 1825 in her parish of La-Nativite-de-la-Ste-Vierge in Lapraire. The Viaus were from Laprairie. Alexis descended from Joseph and Felicite and then 1. Louis Viau who had married Felicite Breau on January 17th, 1791 and 2. Pierre Viau who had married Marie Menard in Longueuil (Chambly) on January 17th, 1747.
If we turn our attention back to Alexis Viau and Theotiste Guerin at the time they were living in Kahnawake, we can see the following offspring who were all married in St-Francois-Xavier Parish:
Francois Xavier Bourdeau (son of Francois Bourdeau and Charlotte Gagnon) married Anne Viau on November 3rd, 1857.
Gilbert Viau married Odile Gibeau (daughter of Jacques Gibeau and Angelique Perras) on July 4th, 1864. (A note on the marriage records states that he had previously been married to Cleophee Bourdeau but I haven’t located the marriage record).
Hormidas Viau married Alphonsine Gagnon (daughter of Francois Gagnon and Marie Rufiange) on February 11th, 1870.
Isaie Viau L’Esperance married Marie Livernois (daughter of Francois Livernois and Sophie Viau) on October 9th, 1871.

I am looking for LeFebvre Perrie around the early 1800′s. I am looking him up as my great great grandfather I know that he had a child name Zoe, and Zoe married Hormisdas Guerin had a girl name Emma Guerin. Emma was born in March of 1884. If you could help with any information I would greatly appreciate it.
