In the 1851 census for St Henri de Mascouch, there's a Mary BROWN, age 24, with a seven-month-old child named Eliza BROWN. There is no way to tell whether Mary is married or if Eliza is illigitimate. Mary is listed as Catholic and born in Ireland. Eliza is born at St. Henri.
I can not find a birth record for Eliza, nor a marriage for Mary in Drouin. If Eliza died young, that's not in Drouin either.
There is a possibility that this Mary is my husband's 2ggm, who had relatives in the St Calixte area. She married in New York State in 1857, but returned to Quebec for the baptism of her second son at New Glasgow (Anglican) in 1861.
I am looking for any ideas about sources that might help me learn whether the St Henri Mary was married and whether Eliza may have died young, as our Mary did not have a daughter in New York as of the 1860 census. (BROWN was her maiden name).
