I'm searching for information on the family of Octave Bellavance (b. 18 Oct 1873 Fall River). He doesn't show up in the census record (that I've found) until 1900. The only vital record I have for him is a marriage to Clara Forcier in 1892 in Fall River. The 1910 census indicates he has a brother named Eugene (b. 1878), but I can't find anything else on him either.
On the marriage record he is named Octave Garner and his parents are John Garner and Julia Hubert. I figured that Garner is supposed to be Gagne, since the Bellavance surname is a branch off the Gagnes in Quebec and I've seen all kinds of mashups of the two surnames. So I've been looking for information on Octave, John or Julia under as many variations of the Bellavance/Gagne name that I can think of, and I have absolutely nothing on John or Julia at all.
If anyone has any sort of information they could share, I would be very, very grateful!
