Surnames: Morin Murray Boucher Bushey
'm looking for any information on my G.G. Grandfather Napoleon Morin (French name) who was born in Canada around 1872 and moved to the Fairfield/Waterville Area with his parents around 1886??. He later changed his name to Paul Murray and married Ethel Boucher/Bushey around 1897.They lived in Fairfield with thier children, Beatrice, Gertrude D. , Alton R., Mildred E., Reginald W., Virginia B, and Bernard L. (according to the 1930 census). If anybody has any records of Paul, Ethel or either of thier parents it would be extremely helpful. Thank you.

Are you still seeking information? Your query on RootsWeb/Ancestry is rather dated now.

If you are, the published records of St. Francis de Sales Church in Waterville (vol. 1; Robert Chenard) state on p. 173 that Napoleon "Paul" Morin was son of Jean Morin & Lucie Paquet and that he married 9 August 1897 Ida-Etta Boucher (daughter of Zephrin and Marie Boucher).

Bob Chenard (compiler) is probably the best French-Canadian genealogist in the area. His web site (google: <"french connection" chenard> contains a lot of information and you really ought to browse through it. Bob has several books of transcribed F-C records and they should be listed on the site. If your ancestors came from Beauce County (as most French-Canadians in this area did), he has records to trace you way back. Using Bob as a source, Cindy Spaulding has done this on her site "WatervilleGenalogy".

I am in Fairfield (adjacent to Waterville) and have access to records here but I am guessing that it is the earlier records that you want.
