Julien Lalonde was born December 8, 1838 in St-Polycarpe, Soulanges, Bas-Canada the son of Louis Lalonde and Marthe Quesnel. He married Henriette Durocher Courtemanche March 21, 1858.

Note: Great Great grandson of Sarah (Allen) Hélène (1692 - 1764) 

Julien Lalonde is the great grandfather to Simone Lalonde (1911 - 1967) who was married to notable Gratien Gelinas (1909 - 1999)

We need help adding sources and cemetery info

His son Eloi Lalonde passed away fairly young after being married for a short time. How did he die? Where is he buried?

He married Henriette Durocher in 1858:

Quebec, Canada, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1968

    Name: Julien Lalonde
    Event Type: Mariage (Marriage)
    Marriage Date: 1858
    Marriage Place: St-Zotique, Québec (Quebec)
    Spouse: Henriette Durocher

    The only burial I can find that is after 1901 is this one:

    Name: Julien Lalonde
    Event Type: Enterrement (Burial)
    Death Date: 1926
    Burial Date: 1926
    Burial Place: Coteau-Station, Québec (Quebec)
    Place of Worship or Institution: St-Ménard

    I can't read French to tell you whether or not it's the same person. 

    There are a number of other Lalonde burials after 1900, but none with the name specifically Julien. Do you have a middle name at all?
    Thank you this shows he was a farmer and was born in Quebec. He was able to speak French and English with his religion being Roman Catholic. A good source to build upon

    I can not seem to enter his birth location. The French language isn’t easy for me either. I hope someone can add the demographic info for this 19th century French family smiley

    He married Henriette Durocher Courtemanche March 21, 1858. Her fathers last name is “Courtemanche” so how do we add th3 wife with LNAB? Do we use Durocher or Courtemanche?

    Hi Andrew,

    The easiest way to enter the birth location is to go onto the profile, click over to the "profile private view", and then click the yellow outlined box that says "place of birth" (or "place of death"), etc. It will bring you to the edit screen and down to the spot where you are supposed to enter it.

    Got it yes

    Almost all of the Lalondes on CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project are from Gatineau county.

    However, he resided in St Zotique, Soulanges at least until 1901. I can't find any Lalondes in 1911 that match his age in St Zotique, nor in the whole of Quebec. I suspect he died in between 1901 and 1911 like his wife (who died 1905).

    You asked about how to enter Henriette's LNAB.  I found her baptism and it was Courtemanche.  Her father Hyacinthe Courtemanche and mother Angelique Henriette Quenelle.

    Henriette was born 6/24/1834, baptized in St. Polycarpe the next day.

    Thank you so much and yes it would be very helpful smiley

    Julien Lalonde’s mother is Marthe Quesnel and his wife’s mother is Angelique Quesnel and both are the daughters of Jean Baptiste Quesnel (1770 - 1852)

    Which would make Julien and his wife first cousins (common in the era)

    I just noticed I’m related to Josephine-Emma Chantelois through my Ranger/Ronger side and Eloi Lalonde (1859 - 1888) smiley

    Cool!  That makes us some kind of cousins.  Even if we weren't, feel free to ask if you ned any Drouin lookups.  Their records are quite complete and I love that PRDH makes the family connections in ways that would take mere mortals a really long time if ever.

    I see you have Tremblay in your tree I have Trombly smiley

    8th cousins in this line 

    Monette too

    My paternal lineage is mostly French so when I see a English Female name from Deerfield pop up it amazed me! Of course she is Sarah (Allen) Hélène (1692 - 1764) my 6th GG. The YouTube video of her is excellent https://youtu.be/o3FppbKHpaE it literally brought my heart joy and sadness what she had endured and in the end survived and gave so much in her children’s legacies. She is soooo special I can’t describe how special she is to me.


    You might like to see «Nos origines» to help you in your research. This site is a tree like secondary source where names are standardized. Most of them are unsourced; so, use carefully. However, I find it very useful to follow the generations and to lead to official records. Beware of spelling because of standardization. I placed a link to Marthe Quesnel and Louis Lalonde on Louis's sources section.
