I need some help here, maybe just a fresh pair of eyes and one with a world Subscription as well, since I can not afford such. I have an ancestor, harry Laplant [ might also of been spelled LaPlante ] born in 1852 in Canada, that is ALL the info I have been able to find on him, other than he married Maggie [ maiden Name: Moore whom was born in Ireland, and nothing more on her. They had, from what LITTLE info I have been able to find, is they had a daughter: Katie Laplant, whom was born Dec 1872 in Minnesota. Katie married john Duquette on 28 Dec 1895 in Escanaba Michigan, Delta County and they had two daughters. But again I can't find ANY death date on Katie or her husband John..
Any help Appreicated, and thank you for your time.

It will help to find as much as you can in the US first, since that may lead you to her parents death dates.

You can go to www.familysearch.org (free site) I started with a general search for Katie Laplante, born 1871-1873 in Minnesota. I actually found two marriages for her, the first one in 1889 for a Kattey Laplante and Anton Benjamin. Her parents were listed as Edward Laplante and Maggie Moore

I also found a female child, born and died in 1880, parents Edward Laplante and Margaret LaPlante. They were living in Houghton Township, keeneewaw, Michigan

There is also a marriage here for John Laplante, same parents
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FC8B-TSN

I encourage you to explore the familysearch site if you have not already. You can do a search from the home page, or you can scroll down and search by countries, then each country will have many links. Start by putting in less information, and it helps to leave a couple of years leeway with dates, as the person's age will vary with when the census was taken.

At www.findagrave.com I found a Margaret Laplant buried in Houghton County - here is her death certificate from The seeking michigan site

http://cdm16317.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection...
It says her husband Edward was the informant, and her maiden name was Moore. I didn't find Edward on that site, but it only goes to 1920.

Thank you So Much for this Info,and for your time on this... the ONLY problem with it, is this: Maggie [ or Margaret ] Laplante's father is Listed as HARRY not EDWARD on her marriage to her first Husband John Duquette..

Also Kate was Never married to a Anton Benjamin, her two marriages were to 1] John Duquette, which took place on 28 Dec 1895 in Escanaba Michigan, Delta County

and then her second marriage was to 2]Wilfred F. Rouse. Together they NEVER had any children but raised HER two or three daughters by her former marriage and her Grandchildren as well.

The ONLY thing I can make out of this is that Maggie's Mother was also a Maggie/Margaret and then makes sense with this Edward that you found. Could that be??

Again Thank you for your time and work in all this info and the help, but again I am stuck looking at it all. My confusion is this: UNLESS Maggie [ or Margaret} was married twice and to a set of brothers, then I can not figure out who EDWARD is... since a man named HARRY is listed as the father and Maggie Listed as the Mother, in the Marriage of daughter Katie Laplant/ Laplante to her first husband John Duquette, and when did HE die for Katie to marry to her second husband, Willard F. Rouse. The info you show me, the more Questions I have. Still looking... Have been looking in familysearch.org, genealogybank.com, Archives.com and trying to get into Michigan death records as well...sigh

Again, Appreciate all the work and time to help, thank you ever so much.

You should know -
Frequently, ppl flip/flopped btw their 1st & middle names
and the same is true with children.

Census takers had a difficult time spelling French last names.

Neighbors frequently supplied family info.

Match up the children with the parents 1st names for each census. If they are the same from one census to the next then the parents are alternating btw 1st & middle names.

I totally agree, cause everything else matched up, just was wondering WHY he would written down in his daughter's marriage record as Harry instead of Edward...But have run across the flip flopped names in my side of the family as well,Plus my Husband gave me some insight as well... Thank you again for all this info, really appreciate it.. What I am trying to find now is the death of John Duquette, and maybe HIS parents... so far nothing, but will try later after dinner.
