In my tracing the Vanasse family I have started to trace those families with a Vanasse as a mother . Charles Louis Bernard married Elisabeth Vanasse in 1888 in Pembroke On . Both have Maniwaki and Indian ties . I cannot find this couple in the census records . Children of this couple were mostly born at L'Annonciation Quebec .
1. CHARLES LOUIS BERNARD (JEAN BAPTISTE and Angelique Simon ) was born Abt. 1860 in Petit Nation Quebec, and died Aft. 1905. He married ELISABETH VANASSE 20 Nov 1888 in St Columbkille Pembroke Ontario, daughter of EUSTACHE VANASSE and ANGELIQUE LACROIX. She was born 18 Sep 1872 in Maniwaki Quebec, and died Aft. 1905.
Children of CHARLES BERNARD and ELISABETH VERTEFEUILLE VANASSE are:
i. CHARLES LOUIS3 SIMON-BERNARD, b. 17 Sep 1889, Pembroke Ontario.
ii. MARIE ANGELIQUE SIMON-BERNARD, b. 22 Jul 1891, La Passe Renfrew ON.
iii. MARGUERITE CELINA SIMON-BERNARD, b. 31 Jan 1893, La Passe Renfrew ON.
iv. ELIZABETH SIMON-BERNARD, b. 25 Feb 1894, La Passe Renfrew ON.
v. MARIE JULIE CELINA SIMON-BERNARD, b. 27 Dec 1896, L'Annonciation Quebec.
vi. LOUIS JOSEPH SIMON-BERNARD, b. 22 Feb 1898, L'Annonciation Quebec.
vii. MARIE GEORGIANA ELISABETH SIMON-BERNARD, b. 08 Apr 1900, L'Annonciation Quebec.
viii. MARIE ROSE ANNA VICTOIRE SIMON-BERNARD, b. 12 Feb 1904, L'Annonciation Quebec.
ix. EUGENE AUGUSTIN SIMON-BERNARD, b. 10 Dec 1905, L'Annonciation Quebec.
Secondly I have found another couple in the Maniwaki records of Charles Louis Racine and Elisabeth Vanasse . I have found two children born at Maniwaki in 1902 and 1907 . I can't find this family in any census record . Charles Louis Racine died in 1924 at Maniwaki . No known marriage record either for this couple .
I'm thinking that maybe this is the same couple .Still can't find either couple in the census .
