I am trying to confirm that Nerry Boyer, who was married to Celestine Godier (sp?) probably in Illinois about 1872, was the son of Baptiste Boyer and Mathilda Carron of Washington County, MO.
In the 1850 census Baptiste and Matilda Boyer had a 4 month old son, Nary and they were living in St. Francois County, MO.
In the 1860 census they were living in Ste. Genevieve, with Nerré, age 11.
In 1880 I found Nerry, age 28, and Celestine Boyer in Prairie du Rocher, IL with 3 children, Nerry, Willie and Johnny. Nerry claimed to have been born in Missouri.
Can anyone confirm who his parents were or when and where he married Celestine?
Thanks for any help.
