Hi David, I've tried 3 times to send this reply, and every time my computer has shut down on me. Hope it will work this time. I'm glad I can help you. Andre' St. Andre' has 7 entries in the book I have. Twice on a couple of them, once translated from French and once from Spanish.

ANDRE' ST. ANDRE'
MARIE RACHAL
April 20, 1789, after two bans, marriage of Andre' St. Andre', native of Montreal in Canada, son of Jacques St. Andre' and Marianne Picard ... and ... Marie Rachal, native of this parish, legitimate daughter of Jacques Rachal and Ursulle Castel. Witnesses: Etienne Verge' (x), Louis Rachal (x), and Baptiste Barthelemy Rachal (x), all habitants.
