Headstone: Alexandre Doucet (1931) Marie Doucet (1920), Bathurst (New Brunswick) – Links Restored

Doucet Alexander Marie. A Canadian Family Headstones

Transcription:

A la memoire de Alexandre Doucet decede le 23 av. 1931 age de 81 ans & de Marie Doucet decede le 27 jan 1920 agee de 75 ans. RIP Translation: In the memory of Alexandre Doucet who died on April 23rd, 1931 at the age of 81 and Marie Doucet who died on January 27th, 1920 at the age of 75. Rest in Peace.

Genealogy Notes:

I came across the couple memorialized on this tombstone while researching my own grandmother Elizabeth Doucet(m. Joseph Lagace) who is the daughter of a couple named Alexandre Doucet and Marie Roy. Both couples lived in the same approximate area and time period, and since my ancestors are also referred to as Alexandre and Marie Doucet, I am trying to untangle the two family trees. I would greatly appreciate help from anyone familiar with either of thse two lines.

This would seem to be the couple Alexandre and Marie Doucet who were married on November 19th, 1872 in Bathurst, New Brunswick in Ste-Famille Parish in the presence of James and Helene Doucet.
