Seeking children of Narcisse Fortin & Felicite Rioux

Seeking children of Narcisse Fortin & Felicite Rioux

Surnames: Fortin, Rioux
Narcisse Fortin & Felicite Rioux had at least two children:

Marie Dorothee, b. Apr. 10, 1848, St. Simon, Rimouski, QC
Narcisse Nelson, b. May 13, 1860, St. Simon, Rimouski, QC

Marie Dorothee is my ggrandmother. I would like to know if she had any other brothers and sisters, when and where they were born, spouses, and death dates. Many people have placed the information about Narcisse Nelson online because of Madonna, but there is little about the rest of the family.

Thank you,
Sharyn Hay

Thank you for replying, Dina. However I have the uncommon problem of knowing this line all the way back and wanting the descendants of Augustin Fortin and Felicite Rioux through any *other* children they may have had. Narcisse Nelson Fortin and my great great grandmother Marie Dorothee are brother and sister (so I am Madonna's 3rd cousin, once removed, speaking genealogically). I need to know if Narcisse and Dorothee had any other brothers or sisters and find out about their lines. I look forward to any information anyone has on them.

Thank you,
Sharyn Hay

Hi Sharyn,

If i find what you're looking for I'll let you know! In the meantime, if you could, would you please explain to me how you figure out your relationship to other cousins as per generations go, gr. grandparents, etc.

If someone and I share the same gr. grandparents ,(my 7th, their 8th) and 2 of their children who obviously were brother and sister, the brother my 6th gr. grandfather and the sister their 7th gr. grandmother, what would be our relationship as cousins?

I never fully understood all this once removed stuff, though I was told it means you are or there is a generation apart .? Anyway, if you are able to help me here I would sincerely appreciate it! Thanks for your time.
:) Dina

Hi Dina,
Although most Family tree programs have a built in relationship calculator, many are available online. Here is a simple one:

Just plug your information into the chart and you'll have the answer.

Sharyn, I am trying to find out more about Felicite Rioux.
I posted to different replys you have made to this board, and here I am again. I could care less about this Madonna relationship. I want help finding my hubbys Rioux family connection.
Being from Bay City, Michigan and Essexville, Michigan area, we do have many family names in common. I do know Joseph Fortin is a family name and of course, Rioux is too.
Can you give me ANY info on Felicite Rioux at all?
Thanks again, Bev Reou/Rioux

I will answer your question about Felicite RIOUX here (because one married a FORTIN), but see the RIOUX board for possible leads to your husband's family (which I just posted).

There appear to be at least three women named Felicite RIOUX who married in Rimouski diocese (there are hundreds
of RIOUX marriages).

Marie Felicite RIOUX (Vincent & Marie Josephe SIROIS-DUPLESSIS) m. Narcisse Augustin FORTIN (Augustin & Marie Euphrosine GAUDREAU [BAUDREAU]) on February 09, 1847 at St. Simon, Rimouski, QC.

Felicite RIOUX (Etienne & Ursule COTE) married Vincent RIOUX (Vincent & Marie Josephe SIROIS-DUPLESSIS) on September 16, 1839 at Trois Pistoles, Rimouski, QC.

Their daughter Felicite RIOUX married Lazare TURCOTTE on Jan 14 1878 at St. Fabien, Rimouski, QC.

Thus these women were directly related , Marie Felicite RIOUX FORTIN was the sister-in-law of one Felicite and aunt of the younger one.

As for the reason you will see Madonna's name mentioned with the FORTIN genealogy, it is because her genealogy comes through two FORTIN lines, both of which were thoroughly traced for a Michigan genealogical society by the late Rene Jette and are very reliable.

If you seek information on your Joseph FORTIN connection, please post your query to this board.

Regards,
Sharyn
