Finally the intermission is over!
During that intermission I was able to validate my information about Chrétien Bracmaer aka Chrétien Lemeyère aka Chrétien Lemaire, and arrive at the conclusion that he is Steve’s ancestor.
Chrétien, tell me more about your family roots…
His only son Jean-Baptiste Lemaire, born around 1784, married Marie-Anne Paquet dit Larivière on November 7, 1808 in Chambly, Quebec. Both his parents are listed as late Chrétien Lemeyère and late Josephte Lagarde.
Josephte had died in 1785.
I looked for Chrétien’s burial act in the parish registers but I could not find it.
We will now take a look at the marriages of the children of Jean-Baptiste Lemaire and Marie-Anne Paquet: three sons, Jean-Baptiste, Julien, Médard, and one daughter, Onésime.
Jean-Baptiste Lemaire married Clarisse Masson, Julien Lemaire married Léocadie David, Médard Lemaire married Émilie Therrien, and Onésime Lemaire married Napoléon Brault.
Remember that name.
To be continued next Monday.
