Thank you so much for the translation of the marriage record. My sister-in-law will be happy to stop trying to read both the old handwriting and trying to translate the French!
After your first email I had also been looking for Pelagie in the census records, but since her parents were already deceased at her marriage - I was not having much luck finding her - so happy to see you found her.
I had seen the death record for Pelagie (but didn't make a copy of it.... thinking I didn't have right Pierre). When will I lean to document everything that MIGHT be relevant!
So my thinking is that for whatever reason... the marriage didn't work out.... and Pierre established himself and had a new family in Wotton. When he received word of his wife's death, he quickly married Adele and legitimized their union and their children.
Thanks for all your help Claire!
