Is there anyone who would know Paul Lamothe's parents name and where he was born? He married Elmire Belanger 27 Nov 1837 in the Cathedrale Notre-Dame Ottawa and died 5 Oct 1862 in Ste-Cecile-de Masham,La Peche, Qc, Canada. The Canadian Cencus of 1851 and 1861 show him to be a Blacksmith and living in Ste-Cecile. In the a microfiche copy of his death his name is shown as Francois Napoleon Lamothe therefore Paul could have been a nickname for Napoleon. I have Elmire's family and their children however I have reach a blocking point with Paul Lamothe's parents.
