Mission Impossible II – Antoine Sauvé dit Laplante

mission impossible

I have not forgotten about Antoine Sauvé dit Laplante.

Let’s just say I got stranded in Moscow, Quebec with my M.I. team.

As I was trying to help Catherine with her Sauvé dit Laplante ancestor I had found this information on the Internet.

Explications concernant le nom de famille et des parents.

Sur l’acte de mariage le 30 avril 1804 à St-Constant le curé avait écrit mariage entre Antoine Majeur, fils d’Antoine Majeur et Marie Williams. Or ces lignes sont biffé et remplacé par “domicilié en cette paroisse”.. Il y a un contrat de mariage no. 352, rédigé le 28 avril 1804 devant le notaire Demers. Dans ce contrat est indiqué que les parents soient feu Antoine Magée et feue Lisette Laplante. Les enfants sont né avant 1817 sous le nom Magé, plus tard Laplante. Lors de son décès son nom est Laplante. Lors du décès de sa femme Charlotte Barré 20 ans plus tard son nom est devenu Antoine Sauvé. Denis Laplante a fait de recherches publiées dans le volume 48 des Mémoires de la Société Généalogique Canadienne-Française. Il vient à la conclusion que Antoine Majeur / Magé / Laplante / Sauvé se nommait probablement McGee et serait, de toute évidence, d’origine irlandaise. Les parents sont jusqu’à date inconnus. Inhumation de Antoine Laplante le 27 avril 1855, âgé de 77 ans, époux de Charlotte Barré de St-Clément de Beauharnois Source: Denis Laplante, vol 48 SGCF 1997 et propres recherches dans les registres paroissiales.

I wrote this quick message to Cathy to tell her daughter that going to Libourne in France to see Pierre Sauvé’s birthplace would be a waste of time.

Hi Cathy,

For what I could find, Antoine Magee or whatever his name was written became Antoine Laplante or Antoine Sauvé dit Laplante. I could not see the parish register, but someone did and wrote about it.

Antoine’s parents might have been Marie Williams and Antoine McGee, but that is all presumption.

For what I know he was not a descendant of Pierre Sauvé because the priest would have written his parents’ names.
Sauvé had been a well-known name in Quebec since Pierre Sauvé and his numerous descendants.
There is no reason whatsoever to omit his parents’ name.

So the hypothesis of McGee is still alive, but no proof will ever be found.

1st Teacher’s Pet Awards – Notes to Ponder

I had a recollection after doing the dishes with my son last week. I get most of my inspiration from doing the dishes or when I take a shower.

Honest, you have to trust me about this…

Trust is everything in life and on this blog about genealogy!

I was just putting a leftover bell pepper in a plastic container. The bell pepper was orange in color which is not that important to be able to understand this post. What I had recollected about was the first time in my life I saw my first bell pepper, a green one which is also an unimportant information. I was visiting a friend and his mother was cutting a green bell pepper.

I was 10 years old which makes me a baby-boomer although my father never went to war and got killed. Something to ponder about isn’t?

Recollections was the title of a post from a blogger who at first I thought was a man.

I am a pretty bad judge of a blogger being a male or a female.

Our Ancestors is all about recollections and vice-versa. I have them all the time like the bell pepper anecdote. It reminded me of where I lived back in 1958.

After that recollection I had a flash.

How to tell the world about my favorite bloggers?

I was never a teacher’s pet nor as a teacher did I have any.


Teacher's Pet

I trust you 100% my dearest teacher..

I never had any teacher’s pets that I know of, although some of my students could have believe otherwise. Everyone was on the same level though some students would stand up amidst the crowd.


Teacher's Pet

I picked it all by myself from my own apple tree…

It did not matter because I loved them all.

This is my first “random” teacher’s pet award though some of my favorite bloggers could believe otherwise.

It goes to Notes for her post about recollections.

Click here.

Just write Notes a comment and let her know she won an award. I am sure it will put a smile on her face.

I will be back next Monday with my second Teacher’s Pet Award.
