Oliver, born Mar 2, 1829 in QC, Canada. His father appears as Jean-Baptiste Fontaine in a census record my cousin checked.

Oliver C Fountain 

Birth: March 2, 1829 
QC, Canada

I came up with Clotilde Justine Brisson as Jean-Baptiste's wife. The trouble is, when I've tracked Clotilde on Ancestry.com, it only shows one child for them: another Jean-Baptiste. So, I really need a birth record to be sure who his parents were. (The census record I checked was smudged and "Clotilde Brisson" was my best guess at what was written there.) My cousin remains convinced that Jean-Baptiste had a different wife (whose first name started with a "C" and last name with a "B." I think a birth record with parents named would settle it.
