I rejected the 1880 marriage (perhaps pre-maturely) as it shows Pierre as having been married to Pelagie BEAUCHEMIN. And I thought I'd found a death record for her in 1880 (can't find it at the moment). So I didn't think he could be living with Adele in those census records while his first wife was still living.
Can you possibly provide me a translation of the record (I know very little French)? Is it a formalized record of a marriage that took place years earlier??? I just can't imagine them living as a family showing up in the census records all that time without a marriage record.
Or did they leave catholic church prior to being married and then came back to it in 1880 so needed to be "married in the church"? I see the daughter Esperance was married in Oct 1880 - maybe parents needed documentation of their marriage in order for daughter's marriage to proceed???
Any other info would be appreciated! This family is driving me crazy!
