I am trying to confirm who are the parents of Etienne Beaulieu, born in 1852 in or around Kamouraska, PQ. Our research so far would indicate that Etienne lived for a time in Chapeau, Que. and may have married Emilie Giroux in Chapeau in 1871. The marriage certificate, for the parish of St. Alphonse lists an Etien Boudont, son of Jeremiah Boudont and Sally Dupuis. The parents should have been Jeremie Hudon dit Beaulieu and Sally or Sole Dupere. It is likely that neither Etienne nor Sally knew how to read or write and would not have been able to tell if the priest got their names correctly. The priest appeared to have been english and Etienne may not have been too conversant in english. If this is the correct couple, they would have stayed in Chapeau for a few years and would have had two or more sons born there. The sons would be John, born in May 1875, Steven born in Sept. 1878 and possibly Paul in 1977. The family then moved to Bonfield Ontario.
Can anyone confirm this information or add to it. The key part for us is to confirm the parents of Etienne Beaulieu
