I'm trying to correct an unsourced profile in my suggestions but...

The information is extremely limited. Daigneault-2 b. 1802 is married to Hebert-223 b. 1811. I have similar information on my home tree but the only information I have found on either of them is at find a grave which lists them as being born in the 1860's


what can or should I do about this?

thank you

Well assuming you mean that find-a-grave says they died in the 1860's you might want to put abuy 1865 as a guess for when they died and then see what you can find in RootSearch in the way of death records or probate records.  Basically it's a crap shoot whether you will or won't find anything, but there are lots of choices and if you don't have access to Ancestry.com, I'd be glad to see what I can find there.

Thank you so much I do not have access to Ancestry and would appreciate the help.

I know many people name children after parents, g-parents, but sometimes it seems a bit odd to find two people who married 60 years after their ancestors of the same name did. I suppose it happens though. I don't want to change any dates yet because it would create havoc on a family line.

I think you might want to start looking sideways (brothers, sisters etc).

It might unearth some new leads.

Also his mother was Maria, same as his wife. If had a son and the nam was given to him, there is a chance the headstone belongs to a descendant. But equally not just down the line but across.

Thank you for the answer. I can't find any information on his mother, not her maiden name or married name. I know last month I had a huge problem with my home tree because someone listed two entire generations 100 years off. It took time but eventually I found the right information and changed it. One date error caused the entire mess. So I wouldn't be surprised if this is a similar case.

I removed Marie (Blondin) Daigneault as the mother from Jean-Baptiste Daigneault.

I added Marie (Blondin) Daigneault as spouse for Jean-Baptiste Daigneault.
