Research notes

There is a Charles Boileau, widower, who marries a Charlotte Maréchal Gagné on 9 Aug 1833 in Berthier in the protestant church there. Both are listed as residents of the seigniory of d'Aillebout. Charles would logically have remarried, he had minor children from his second wife, who died in 1831. But on the baptisms of 3 children he is listed as cultivateur rather than baker, on baptism of François is listed as journalier,

It would appear this is another Charles Boileau, where that one came from is unknown. There is an Élisabeth Boileau listed as being aunt of one of the children here, the only Élisabeth found in the family would have been half-sister rather than aunt. Unless the listing is erroneous and she was indeed half-sister. Charles' 2nd wife's funeral lists him as cultivateur de Kildare.

bug on the database did not permit me to view actual record.

they have the following children:

  1. François, b 30 Oct 1834 bapt 31st Ste-Mélanie-d'Ailleboust; died there 1 Mar 1836 funeral 2nd @ 16 m
  2. Matilde, b & bapt 9 Jan 1837 Ste-Mélanie-d'Ailleboust godparents François Gagné & Élisabeth Boileau, oncle et tante; marries Louis Laurin 20 Oct 1857 St-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Joliette); died 13 Jun 1858 funeral 15th St-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Joliette) @ 21; brother Urgel listed as present at her marriage, parents having given consent (minor), father not listed as deceased.
  3. Urgelle (m), b 15 Jun 1840 bapt 19th St-Ambroise-de-Kildare; Urgel married Derime Perreault 29 Aug 1876 St-Côme (Joliette)
  4. Marie Anne, aged 3 1/2 months when baptized 9 Apr 1843 St-Ambroise-de-Kildare
  5. Philomène, b 10 Nov 1844 bapt 1 Dec St-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Joliette); married Antoine Leblanc 7 Jan 1868 St-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Joliette)
  6. Marcelline, of age when she marries Godfroi Peltier 25 Sept 1849 L'Assomption; father listed as cultivateur
  7. Marie, of age when she marries Narcisse Poitras 15 May 1865 St-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Joliette) (is this Marie Anne? Father is listed as deceased.)
  8. Zoé, of age when she marries Jean Baptiste Vandandaigue dit Gadbois 14 Aug 1876 St-Jude[1]

They are listed as residents of St-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Joliette), which is somewhat north of Ste-Mélanie, in the same general area as Rawdon (sub-district per census)[1]

According to the records of the Church of England parish at Berthier-en-Haut, Quebec, Sarah Boileau and my ancestor, Orrimill Gibbs, then a widower, both of the Seignory of d'Aillebout, were married on January 29, 1833. Orrimill was a witness, in August of the same year, to the marriage of Charles Boileau, widower, to Marechal [?] Charlotte Gagne. other research
