Clouthine Bruisseau and John Baptiste Fountain parented Oliver Fountain, but who were their parents?

Finally, with help from Gill-1291 on G2G, I got the name of my great great grandfather Oliver Fountain mother's name right: clouthine Bruisseau. I corroberated that with a MA death record on Ancestry.com. (interesting, the attending physician at Oliver Fountain's time of death was a W.A. Brosseau, close enough to Oliver's mother's maiden name that the doctor could have, given misspellings and transcription errors, been related!)

Anyway, Oliver and his parents all have Canada listed for birthplaces. Likely, Quebec. They lived in Black Brook, NY for a while until pushing south.

Before this new information, I had Oliver's mother listed as Clotilde Brisson, who also lived in Black Brook, NY, in the same time frame! Could this be the same person? Her husband is Jean-Baptiste Fontaine, a more French variant of the surname "Fountain." I ended up with her because that's what I made of the hand-written record I had. I could solve this problem and begin moving backward in the family genealogy again if I could clarify who the parents of Clouthine (a.k.a. Clotilde?) and Jean-Baptiste Fountain were. (I know there were a lot of Fr. Canadian Marie's and Jacques, but this is ridiculous!)

I found Jean Baptiste Fontaine maried in St Constant, Québec  with Clodilthe Brission on the January 7 1828. They had two childrenont what I have. Jean Baptiste and Adéline. If they are the one you are looking about, i can find some other information on them. The parents of Jean Baptiste are Jean Baptiste Fontaine and Marie Anne Gagné maried the october 14 1805 in St Constant, Québec. His father is René Fontaine and mother  Marie Marguerite Sansoucy  maried january 10  1774 in Laprairie Québec. René is from St Pierre de la Rive Sud born on the may 9 1774. If you like to receive the lien for the certificat just write to me and i will send them to you.Excuse my english I am french quebec  Clothilde brisson  parents are Joseph Brisson and Catherine Caille fron St Constant.   Olivier is born the march 14 1841 in St Rémi, Québec   I found 8 children from them.  For St Constant the register was lost from 1796 up to 1830
