Looking for Johnny Rheault

Looking for Johnny Rheault

Posted: 1098986001000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Rheault / Couture
My Great Grandfather is listed on a prayer card for my great grandmother Rose-Emma Couture (her parents are Achille Couture and Marie Audit) as Johnny Rheault. That is all I know about him. Rose died in Lac Fronntiere Quebec Canada in 1951 at age 63 and 9 months.
They had the following children I think in this order
Jeannette Married to Alphonse Lemmon
Ovila Rheault
Lionel b.1909 (my grandfather) Married Jeannette Cote 1929
Roseanna Married Real Belanger
Marie Jeanne Married Rosaire Caron

bonjour Jeannette:

I have not been able to go as far as I would have wanted with the ancestry of Johnny. One reason being that the surname has so many variants: Rhault, Raoul, Rheault, Rault, Rau, Reau, Rho and Alexandre.

Searching with the most distant ancestor (Francois) : the use of his wife's name (Genevieve Richard) did not help. This is not a name that has variants or at least not that many.

I suspect that the Francois got married in New Brunswick.

Here is the ancestry have I have able to find. Read from bottom to top.

Francois Rheault dit (aka) Alexandre married Genevieve Richard at a date and place unknown at this time.

Hyacinthe (Alexis) Rheault dit Alelxlandre married Francois Grondi (d.o. Louis and madeleine Daviau) 8 Feb 1802, Les Beacquests

Damase married Beatrice lariviere (d.o. J.B. and Lucie Gagnon) 22 Aug 1854, Plessissville

Joseph Rheault maarried Delphine Bergeron (d.o. Olivier and Lucie Prince) 19 Jan 1880, St-Calixte (Megantic Co.)

Johnny Rheault married Rose-Emma Couture (D.o. Achille and Marie Audet, 26 Jun 1906, St-Léon-de-Standon

Marriage data for children of Johnny:

Jeannette M (for married) Alphonse Lemelin 9 Jun 1927, Lac-Frontiere

Ovila M Fernande mercier, 24 Apr 1935, Lac-Frontiere

Lionel M Jeannette cote 1929 (your data; I have not found anything on him)

Roseanna M Real Belanger 20 Sep 1928, Lac-Frontiere

Marie Jeanne M Rosaire Caron 9 Jul 1946, Cap-St-Ignace

Germaine M Liones-Gaston Catellier 25 Sep-1939, Lac-Frontiere.

I trust that this is the kind of info you had in mind.

Thank you so much. I had gotten a little of that information from another message board but the information about Ovila and Germaine is greatly appriciated. My Mother had met Germaine but could not remember her husbands name.
I think that the info on my Pepere is not available because he moved back to the US and married my Memere. Also he died suddenly at 45 only 6 days after my parent were married.
But again thank you so much this is really helpful. The whole family will be thrilled.
