He passed away on April 4, 1851 and his burial was on April 26th 1851 in Saint-Louis-des-Français.
Since we don't have any records that show Regis's age, his year of birth is estimated based on his wife's approximate year of birth. His parents were married in 1770.
Regis was the son of Paul Bellefontaine and Rosalie Comeau according to Stephen White. In the marriage record for Luc Bellefontaine, it says that Luc was the son of Paul Bellefontaine and Rose Comeau, and one of the witnesses was "Regis Bellefontaine, frère" (brother).
