Parish registers…

The only way to go…

1786 Étienne Daigle

One of the index pages taken from Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire parish

This could be the last post on the Daigle or Dague family.

It was a draft post I had written before I found Stephen Dague’s real name in this document also taken in the same parish registers.

Draft post

Taken from this…

I don’t have the exact image to show you of the baptism of Étienne Daigle in 1789 who was the father of who I think is Stephen Dague who died in 1923. However we have definite proof of Étienne Daigle Senior’s birthdate: 23 September 1786, on page 25.

But is he “THE” Stephen Dague who had married Margaret LaFrance from Moscow, Quebec?

This message was left on a forum in 2001, and is probably where Judi got her information  about Moscow.

Hello,

I am trying to find a marriage of Stephen/Etienne Dague and
Margaret/Marguerite LaFrance. They may be from the Moscow, Quebec area.

Had son Stephen/Etienne Dague, b. 2 March 1827.
Family migrated to Vermont in the 1830s.
Thank you for any help. 

Gloria

So the search is on again…

End of the draft post.

The search is all but over and I have tried to reach Gloria Reynolds by sending her an e-mail using the e-mail address she left on the forum.

I hope she is still interested.

It has been thirteen long years.

Who ever said Start small, start slow?

I am closing this chapter in the life of Stephen Daigue who left this earth on March 2nd, 1923.

No pictures to show you, just a name on a death certificate.

That’s always the saddest part in a search for someone’s ancestor.

As a footnote to all this search for Étienne Daigle, son of Étienne Daigle and Marguerite Messier dit St-François…

 

What is above is part of my search that led me to this as I was just trying to find more clues in the Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire parish registers.

How can you trust someone who said Start small, start slow?

It was worth all the efforts.

Maybe someday someone will write me and have old pictures of people he or she does not have a faintess idea who they were.
