I have access to original records and would like to correct some of the data that were posted here.
LOUIS VERVILLE, son of Joseph Bourbeau Verville and Marguerite Provencher, was born March 12, 1825 and baptised on the 13,in Champlain, Qc. His family lived in Gentilly.
On Feb. 23 1852, in Gentilly, he married:
VICTORINE LACOURSE, daughter of Francois Lacourse and Marie Doucet. She was born Feb 2, 1823 and baptised on the 3, in Gentilly, Qc
Before moving to Michigan, in 1869's, Louis Verville et Victorine Lacourse lived in Plessisville, Arthabaska, Qc, Canada. That is where all their children were born:
Marie Heloise was born and baptised Dec 21, 1852 in Plessisville. She is known as Excelia in the 1870 census, or Louise, elsewhere (closer match to her birth name)
Victoire was born on July 5, 1854 and baptised on the 6, in Plessisville. She's Victoria in the 1870 and 1880 census.
Joseph Amedee was born June 11, 1856 and baptised on the 12,in Plessisville. The census taker wrote Mada in 1870 and Amada in 1880.
Joseph Norbert was born July 14,1857 and baptised on the 15, in Plessisville. Known as Norbert in the 1870 census
Josephine was born April 25, 1859 and baptised on the 26, in Plessisville.
Alice was born and baptised August 16, 1860 in Plessisville
Joseph Ludger was baptised Sept 14, 1862 in Plessisville. He is known as Joseph in the 1870 census
Gedeon was born Feb 1, 1865 and baptised on the 2, in Plessisville. His name is messed up in the 1870 census. For some reasons, the name he gave in the 1900, 1920 and 1930 census was Edward but in 1910, he kept his birth name of Gedeon. Since the names of his wife and children are the same in all cases, there is no doubt, it's the same person.
Marie Olivine was born and baptised July 31, 1867, in Plessisville. She became known as Ida

Census Records of 1870 and 1880 show Louis Verville, Victoria Lacourse and their children as living in Ely, Marquette, Michigan. In the 1900 census of the same place, Louis is a widow and lives with daughter Victoria and son James(?)
Louis Verville's brothers, Moses (married to Emily Mars) and Alexis (married to Phoebe Trottier) lived in Michigan, North Dakota or nearby states. Most of the other Vervilles who lived around there are cousins.
Does anyone know when and where Louis Verville and his brothers died?
