Marie Ann Aglae Paquette m. Felix Albert George Larocque

Enquiry:

“Hi, my name is Ernest Larocque.

I am looking for information on my grandmother Marie Ann Aglae Larocque (born Paquette). She was born 1891 in St-Venent-de-Paquette, East Hereford, Quebec. She married my grandfather Felix Albert George Larocque September 28, 1910 in Riviere Qui Barre, Alberta and died in New West Minster B.C.May 18, 1978. Both my parents have past away and our family doesn’t really know much about the Paquettes so I really am grasping to find information about the Paquette family.
I don’t have access to records and wondered if you would have any way to determine who Marie Ann Aglae’s parents were.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
Thank-you”

A Lajeunesse/Paquette Family of Montebello Quebec

Last February I published a post (Sommier/Lajeunesse (aka Saulmier/Saulnier) | Papineauville, Petite Nation | Evelyn In Montreal) in reply to a query by Elise Campeau who is looking for more information about her grandfather, and in particular his aboriginal heritage. Elise is still looking for information about her ancestors, and wanted to share these pictures of her grandfather.

Paquette m. Brule, 1877 | Evelyn in Montreal

Earlier today Michele Martin was saying  “My g-grandfather, Joseph Guillame PAQUETTE married Marie Brule in 1877 in St. Andre Avelin, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The marriage record says he was from Kantucky. Obviously, this is incorrect. While I have been looking at your site, I noticed that you refer to Kahnawake. I know I have quite a bit of Aboriginal blood and was wondering if any documents still exist that could be referenced for his birth in 1854, and if there is a website. I know it is a reach, but I have had no luck with him at all.”

Information 1 – Confirmation Marriage

The BMS2000 Index (not original document) gives this information for the Paquette/Brule marriage: Joseph Guillaume Paquette (son of Charles Paquette and Marie Periard) married Marie Brule (daughter of Joseph Brule and Angelique Dubreuil) on October 16th, 1877 in St-Joseph Parish in Ottawa. A notation says: spouses from Ste-Anne, Ottawa.

Ancestry.com adds that “Marie Brule was born in St-Andre Avelin about 1851. J.Paquette was born about 1853 in Kentucky Hansbury“.

Information 2  – Perillards in Oka (native territory – see also 1901 census)

323. Jos. Perillard, Indian Agent at Oka, Quebec, wrote to the Secretary of Indian Affairs, on January 2,1907, requesting a hunting permit for an Indian of his Agency who had been prevented from hunting muskrat at Port Union, Ontario (east of Toronto) until he obtained a license.
