Hi Don;
I checked the 1881 CDN census but could find no Ferdinand & Angele Dumesnil anywhere in
Canada - even did a search for Ferdinand and Angele D* with no luck. If you can think
of another way of searching - a child's name (b bef 1881) I'll look again.

Found this for only Polydore Legault in all of Canada. Won't help with his marriage,
but you probably can glean some family ino from it.
