I am researching the children and descendants of Philippe St Amand - b.1855 Quebec, lived in Renfrew county, Ontario where several of his kids were born. Philippe was married to Marguerite LePage.
Children of Philippe St Amand and Marguerite LePage: i. Louis `Lou` St Amand ii. 2. Joseph Peter Francis St Amand was born 28 Jan 1888 in Fort Coulonge QC iii. 3. Joseph Philip St Amand was born 11 May 1889 in QC iv. Lottel `Lettie` St Amand was born 20 Dec 1892 in QC v. 4. Leo Arthur St Amand was born 05 Mar 1896 in Pembrooke Ontario vi.

Particularly interested in his son Joseph Peter Francis St Amand,born 28 Jan 1888 Fort Coulonge QC, married Mary Hanson in Montreal. Mary died giving birth and Joseph Francis had to leave his three daughters in St Patrick`s Orphanage, Montreal. He returned to the North Bay area in Ontario where he had been living. My best friend is the grand daughter of Joseph Francis and would dearly love to connect with his family. I am doing her genealogy to help her find a path to these folk. All help most appreciated, especially in finding old photographs, the burial place of Joseph Francis St Amand ( North Bay or Pembroke?) and any living descendants of Philippe St Amand’s lineage.
