I'm not sure if this is relavant, but an Ancestry.ca search returned an interesting 1911 census entry from Nova Scotia:

http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1911/pdf/e001976530.pdf

Familly #70 at the bottom shows a Clara Melanson as head with 3 children, one being named William (after his father?) and another named Freda born in July 1906.

Are you sure she was born in Quebec? If not, it might be worth looking into this census record...

After a bit more digging, it seems like that census record is indeed for this family so I went ahead and created a few profiles and edited the original question to link it to one of those new profiles.

If anyone else has any more information, you can go ahead and add to those new profiles. I'm curious to get them linked to the earlier existing Melanson and Doucet famillies which are amongst my ancesters and find out how distant of a cousin I am with the original poster.
