By 1874 when the marriage took place Charles was 23 and may have immigrated alone.


The family name was changed for a number of reasons -
census taker may have had a difficult time understanding Charles' French Canadian

Charles could not read or write, so he could not verify the correct spelling

Census taker simply wrote what he heard for the family name

Order the death cert. for Charles directly from the county of death clerks office. Parents names should be listed.
