I am looking for any information about Margaret Cartier. Unfortunately, I only have the following information about her:

Margaret Cartier married Joseph Forcier. Joseph was from Masha, Canada. He was b. 12/12/1852 and d. 3/24/1919.

They had several children, one of which was Josephine Forcier (b. 1/9/1859 in Centerville, MN / d. unknown). I do not have any information about the other children.

I do not have Margaret's date of birth or death date, but I believe she immigrated to the USA with her husband, then returned to Canada after his death.

Any information or suggestions as to where I might find such information would be greatly appreciated.

About 1855, my gggrandfather Pierre Cartier emigrated to Centerville, Minnesota from Yamaska, Canada. He had a sister Marguerite born about 1924. Their parents were Louis Cartier and Dorothee Ritchot.

Coincidentally, today, I found a stoneware jug for sale on ebay with the inscription "lafleur hotel yamaska." Hoping to find out about this hotel, I typed those words into the google search engine and was surprised to see that the second hit listed was "the ancestors of Guillaume Forcier." I took a look at the site and found the information you're looking for on Joseph Forcier and Margaret Cartier and their family (see #17). Here's the link: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Oaks/1015/forcier2.html

Hope this helps you with your research. Good luck.

Did your Marguerite have a daughter named the same born in 1848 in St. Guillamne, Quebec who later married a Louis Cote?

I'm a bit confused by your query. Do you want a marriage between a Marguerite CARTIER and a Louis COTE or between a Marguerite FORTIER / FORCIER and a Louis COTE ?

I have found information saying that Marguerite Cartier (de LaFrance) married Louis Cote in 1871. One of their children was Joseph Cota who was my grandfather. I have little information beyond that on the Cote (my maiden name was Cota) family.

Maybe you should check out this message from the Coté board :

http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=message&r=rw&p...

We do have access to the MA Vital Records at the Montreal Central Library. I'll try to find the marriage records next week to see if I can't find anything.

Surnames: COTA - CARTIER - LAFRANCE - TONNONCOURT - FOURQUIN - DUSSEAU
I've checked the MA vital records and here's what I found :

Lewis (Louis) COTA, born c. 1846 in Richford (Franklin Co.) VT, (son of Joseph COTA and Mary Ann ...) and Margaret CARTER (Cartier), born. c. 1848 in Canada, (daugther of ... & ... Carter) married 09/12/1871 in Northampton, MA.

I found the death record for a Margaret CARTIER (LAFRANCE) Northampton MA in 1882. Her parents were stated as : Antoine & Mary ...).

All those datas lead to one marriage :

Louis CARTIER dit LAFRANCE (s/o Louis & Modeste DUSSEAU) married Mar. 01 1859 in St-Michel d'Yamaska (Yamaska Co.) Quebec to Marie-Exerille FOURQUIN dit LEVEILLE (d/o Antoine & Exupere DESROCY dit LINCOURT).

Louis Cartier's wife died in Northampton MA in 1881/82 and Louis died in Dakota in 1903 (Cartier datas found at my genealogical society).

I've checked the Vermont vital records, but I found nothing relating to a COTA family in Richford VT.

I've also found an obtuary in the Index for the Richford VT Gazette and Journal (1880-1957) for a John COTA, 77 years old, born in La Presentation (St-Hyacinthe Co. Quebec). He died in Richford Jan. 15 1898, at his son's Arms Hill house. The OB states John had a daughter living in Valleyfield Qc and that his burial would take place in Sutton (Brome Co.) Quebec.

In the 1900 US federal Census for North Dakota, Rolette Co, village of Dunseith, I found two entries that might be of some interest:

# 3536 :
COTE, Louis, widower (30 yrs marr.), born Canada East (US migration 1870)
COTE, John (son) b. 11-67 in Canada (US migration 1879)
COTE, Rose (d) b. 10-80 in Canada (US 1879)
COTE, Lizzie (d) b. 02-82 MA
COTE, Maggie (d) b. 03-84 MA
COTE, Louise (d) b. 23-84 MA

Also :

# 3435 :

LAFRANCE, Louis, widower (39 yrs marr.) b. 04-37 Canada East, farmer (US 1850)
LAFRANCE, Alice (d) b. 09-78 MA
TONNONCOURT, Joseph, b. 03-78 Canada East (US 1890), famer

If I find any Cartier or Cote lead, I'll let you know.
