Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

An online genealogy suggests Aurélie may have been the daughter of Joseph Provençal and Ursule Roberge.

Richard and Aurélie were probably married in 1867 in Wotton, Wolfe County, Québec, Canada. The information can be found in a French-language church registry. (from pending source record, "Marriage record for Richard Lessard and Aurélie Provençal," which needs to be translated)

Richard and Aurélie may have had 16 children. [periodical-les-ages-de-soeurs-et-freres-1967]

She may have died in November 1892 and been buried on the 15th. This is based on my inexpert reading of a few dates in a French-language burial register from Vallyfield, in the Parish of St. Cecile.
