1925 Marriage (to Isidore Beaulieu in Bonfield, Nippissing, ON) age 46 born Hull

Hi Frank,

At Family Search, in the records from the parish that Danielle mentioned, Sainte-Cécile-de-Masham, this may be her baptismal record transcription ...

"Québec, Gatineau, Sainte-Cécile-de-Masham, registres paroissiaux, 1853-1901," images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 15 October 2021), Baptêmes, mariages, sépultures; Baptism Sophie Adèle Bellaire, 7 Apr 1881, p 48, baptism no 25, image 677 of 1239; Archives Nationales du Quebec (National Archives of Quebec).

Here's what I get: 7 Apr 1881, baptized Sophie Adèle Bellaire, born 4th of the legitimate marriage of Joseph Bellaire and Emilie Breton, godparents: Paul Bellaire and Adele Bellair

sorry, that date doesn't do it.  La Pêche is earlier known as Sainte-Cécile-de-Masham, and looking at the 1879 records of that parish reveal no baptism for her in that time period.

Maybe Adele was born on March 1881 in Masham.

She was born within last 12 months : 1/12 on the 1881 Census (House 109)
