Caraquet history

 

The Caraquet Deveaus descend from the carpenter Firmin Deveau (son of Joseph Deveau and Rose Michaud), most likely from Kamouraska, Quebec) and Marie-Joseph Beaulieu (daughter of Mathurin Beaulieu and Marie Guerette).

Fort Coulonge (QC) Lagaces | Evelyn in Montreal

Reader Query:

Hi Evelyn, I’ve just come across your site and love it! I too am a descendant of this wonderful family.

My ggrandfather was Damase Lagace son of Andre Lagace and Domatile Bertrand. Andre was a son of Amable Lagace and Christine Pelletier. I am looking for a death record and possible marriage(s) records for Damase. He was born on 25 May 1883 in Coulonge. He married Rose Mary Beatrice Durocher (daughter of Alderic Brien dit Derochers and Marie Francoise Caille dit Jasmin) on 2 July 1912 at Fort Coulonge. Damase and Beatrice went their separate ways sometime around 1920. Have you come across Damase in your research? Any help you can offer is appreciated.    Sharon Katarincic

Dumont, Lagace | Riviere-Ouelle Memorial

Dumont | Riviere Ouelle Pioneer

 

This is the headstone of Anais Clementine Dumont who married Elisee Lagace on May 10th, 1886 at Notre-Dame-de-Liesse church in Riviere Ouelle.

Elisee’s parents were Edouard Lagace and Virginie Lizotte while Clementine was the daughter of Eusebe Dumont and Claire Levesque.  In my database, I have the following siblings for Elisee Lagace: Jean Charles, Augustin, Clement and Elisee.

If I have deciphered the headstone correctly, Clementine died in 1887.
