Arsenault (Bernard/LeBlanc)

Arsenault (Bernard/LeBlanc)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Arsenault, Bernard, LeBlanc
I am looking for help obtaining some additional info if possible regarding my maternal great-great grandmother specifically. I have really come to a wall at this point.

The name of my great-great grandmother - Mary/Marie Blanche Bernard (1871(PEI?)-1950(? - New Brunswick)).

Her parents, father = Joseph Bernard (Born PEI - parents Rufin Bernard & Suzanne - this is what I have been told by family) & her mother = Marie Arsenault (no other info).

She married Wilfred LeBlanc on Aug 18, 1889 in St. Paul de Kent. Wilfred's info: born 1868 New Brunswick, died 1956 New Brunswick & his parents are Thadee LeBlanc & Domithilde Johnson).

Wilfred & Blanche had my great grandmother Azelia (aka Zelia LeBlanc - 1897 St. Marie de Kent - 1975 Moncton New Brunswick).

There has been an ongoing family discussion Blanche or her mother was a full blooded indian. Unsure on this information.

Any help with this would be VERY appreciated :)

If it helps, I have and I can email a picture of Blanche and Wilfred. Also, a copy of a eulogy supposedly of Blanche's father I believe (Joseph Bernard). I cannot read it for it is all in French, but I can connect the dots of the mentioned names.

Thanks in advance for your time.
