Gauthier & Larocque

Gauthier & Larocque

Posted: 1505160907000
Classification: Query
Margaret Ann Gauthier was born 1880 in Russell, Ontario.
On her marriage record, she lists her father as Francis/Frank Gauthier.
She married William Larocque, also of Russell in 1897.
I am trying to find information on the Gauthier family - with the exception of her marriage record, Margaret Ann and her family are a mystery.
I am unsure of who her mother was - various records show her as Margaret, Ann or Sophie.

Hi, Have you searched the 1881 Canada Census - the 1891 Canada Census
Should show members of the family - at the same residence at the time

Are you certain of the Birth Year -1880 for Margaret Ann GAUTHIER - in Russell Ontario?
Search of Librrary and Archive Canada - finds a
Francis GAUTHIER - age 38 - born Quebec -
spouse and 7 children ages 12 years - to 5 months
6 born in Quebec - infant born in Ontario.

You have Marriage Information ?

Thank you!

I do have the marriage record for Margaret Ann Gauthier and William Larocque in 1897 in Russell. In that record, she is listed as 19 years old. It is not inconceivable that this record is incorrect and she could have been 29 years old. She indicates that she was born in Russell and her parents were Francis Gauthier and Sophie Hemter/Hunter. I am not sure that this information is correct either, as on her death record, her husband stated that her mother was in fact Margaret Ann Gauthier.
I may be looking at a different record than you as I seem to be pulling out only Quebec records so far -

Hi You have the marriage information for Margaret Ann GAUTHIER to William LAROCQUE in 1897 - is this a transcription - or original.
you mention the age as 19 but possibly 29 years.
What is the age shown on the death information ? -

How old was William at the time of marriage ?

though helpful - this is not always the most correct document since the information comes from persons [ even spouse/ children] who may not have - or remember the correct information [ * from experience]
Husbands/ wives do not always remember the given names of their in law's

I do have this transcription in my records. On the original, the surname of the mother of the bride is not that clear - it could be Hunter or Hempter.

Margaret Gauthier gave her birth date in the 1911 census as March 1880 and on her death registration, her birth date is given as March 26, 1924, so this appears to be correct.

On her death record, her father and mother were both recorded as being born in Ontario. This matches the information given in census records. Additionally, the census confirm that Margaret Gauthier spoke only English and was Anglican.
