Found these notes regarding the marriage of Ignace Pitre and Marie Maher:

m: Abt. 1830 America [‘rehabilitation’ 21 July 1842 St. Regis, Huntingdon, Beauharnois, Quebec].
I think this means their initial marriage wasn't sanctioned by the Catholic Church and they underwent a "rehabilitation" wedding to make them officially married in the eyes of the church.
