And the search and research continues of the genealogy of the Parisé Family Line continues. This time I veer and my sights are on the birth and baptism records of gggg-grandmother Catherine (née Grenier) Huard, Parisé.
The date of gggg-grandmother Catherine’s Baptism is 20 September 1840. Her birth is provided as 20 July 1840. We are now introduced to her parents, ggggg-grandparents Jacques and Catherine (née Duguay) Grenier. Note that this is another occurrence of the surname Duguay.
Once again I have discovered two Registrations in The Drouin Collection. Here are the images as downloaded via Ancestry.ca.
I have provided one transcription for the two Registers as it appears that, in this case and as best as I can read, both Registrations are similar.
Le vingt Septembre mil huit
cent quarante, nous pretre soussi
gné avons Baptisé Catherine né le
vingt juillet dernier du legitime
mariage de Jacques Grenier (a) et de Ca
therine Duguay de Paspébiac. Par
raine Felix Thériault Marraine
Theophile Parisé, qui n'ont pas signé.
My attempted translation -
On the 20th of September one thousand eight hundred and forty, we the undersigned priest have baptized Catherine, born July 20 last, of the legitimate marriage of Jacques Grenier (a) and Catherine Duguay of Paspébiac. Sponsors: Godfather: Felix Theriault Godmother: Theophile Parise, who have not signed.
From my previous Post, Part 807gh it appears that gggg-grandmother Catherine received her parents agreement to marry her double 1st cousin Romain Huard and that she was considered a “fille mineure”, a minor daughter. From my approximate calculations gggg-grandmother Catherine may have been 20 years old at her first marriage in 1860.
If you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, and comments I certainly would appreciate hearing from you.
The saga continues.
