For a family living in the Terra Coupe area in about 1869, what Catholic Church would the children have been baptized at? I found the family in Galien, Berrien, Michigan in the 1870 census, but the family information I have said my ancestor was born in Terra Coupe, IN. I realize that Terra Coupe is near the border.

For a family inTerre Coupe in 1869 the only alternative would be St Patricks or St hedwig in South Bend .... or a long shot St Marys in Otis In , Laporte County ....St Stanislaus Kosta had a mission in the 1880's but no standing church until the 1890's ... Who are you looking for perhaps I can help ...

Delphis Phillip MEAR was born 19 May 1870, according to his death cert, which of course, could be incorrect. However, I found the family in the 1870 census with Delphis' age given as 1 year. Since we don't know who talked to the census taker, this could also be wrong. A baptism record would hopefully resolve this question.

Yes. I have all that info. :) The question is his birth date. You know, some say it was one year, some say it was another. Even the place of birth was in question, but I would say it was Terra Coupe, IN. When I noticed that the family lived in MI in 1870, that made it seem more likely.

St. Patrick's might be my best bet then. Thank you very much.
