My great grand father is Samuel B:1841-D:1879 Bay City, Mi. he was the 5th child of Cyrille and Margurete Gagnon. They lived in Trois Pistoles, Que,
There were ten children. The last was Vital. I do not know if this is the same one you are looking for. I have found the name of Vital was somewhat common. He had a sister Matelda and a brother Maxime. They are buried In Kawkawlyn Mi a near Bay City.
My information came from the Quebec Canada census. Also there is a tree on Ancestry by the name of Marchan-marchand that has many links. The cemetery records confirmed that Mathilda is the daughter of Cyrille and Margurette.
Cyrille parents are Maxime and Francoise Cote. (the have a son Vital also)




Maxime D'Amour is a brother to Samuel. He is on the same 1851 Census of Canada. Maxime died Dec. 27,1928 of phenomena.

Maxime is buried at Kawkawlyn Cemetery in Kawkawlyn Mi. A suburb of Bay City. He is burried with his Sister Mateldia Roucheau and cousin Mathilda D'Amour Dumont.

I hope this is of some help.The family were member of St. Joseph's in Bay City. I wrote to St. Mary's in Bay City and a wonderful nun Sr. Rose Dorre researched for me and we met and she took me and my husband around town. What a help! It was not bad for us as we live in Livonia, Mi.
