1797-04-05 04-05 (Jean-Baptiste DESROSIERS oncle, Marguerite DESROSIERS-ENAULT
NB: The above entry has the mother as Marguerite rather than Catherine but the father is Claude, no other Martin/Desrosiers marriages are recorded, and the date fits in with their marriage and the birth of their other children. So, I am including it as very likely them. Your call.

I found no burials for any of the children, Pierre or Therese. Also I double-checked and could find no baptism for Alexis, just the marriage.

Have fun!

Hi Dave - Speaking for a friend I have some of the names mentioned but I
don't have full information. Perhaps someone would be able to make a
connection and provide a bit more info. If so, I would appreciate it.

Catherine PELLAND
b 20 Jan 1771 - Berthier
parents Pierre & Therese FAGNAN OR FAGNANT

Joseph Fagnan & Therese Mandeville
dau Therese Fagnant married Pierre Pelland 4 Feb 1765
and some of their childrens names are PELLAND-MARTIN

I realise the dates I have are before those mentioned in your message but I
don't have spouses for any of the children so their might be a connection.
Just asking in case someone already has a line with these names that might
connect. Joyce

Hi Ed,

It would seem that they stayed at least until 1829 in order to have
Baptized the following two children at Ste-Genevieve-de-Berthier:

Name Date of Baptism
Adelaide FAGNAN November 18, 1826 Joseph
compagnon-chapelier, Catherine MARTIN-PELLAND

(Jean ST-GERMAIN, Archange BOUCHER-PELLAND ayeule)

Joseph FAGNAND February 24, 1829 Joseph journalier,

(Joseph COUTU, Louis-Caroline FAGNAND)
(Burial) Age 8m. October 31, 1829 Joseph navigateur,

Received a couple of months ago some great information on my maternal
side of my French branch of my family tree, I can now trace at least two
lines back to France. What I'm trying to find is where my GGGrandmother
Helena Fanyou was born, in Berthierville, QC or Albany, NY. Her mother
was Catherine Martin-Pelland Fagnant born 10/18/1807 and her father was
Joseph Fagnant born 1807 and they were married in Berthierville, QC on
1/10/1826. It is unclear whether they left immediately after getting
married for Albany, NY or whether they lingered on until the early
1830s. There is a gap of several years between the time that Helena and
at least one other sibling was born and the bulk of their children in
Albany, NY.

One of Helena's GGrandfathers was Francois Martin-Pelland, who was a 1st
Lt who fought in a French-Canadian Regiment on the Rebel side in the
American Revolutionary War and was killed in battle in Fishkill, NY in
1778. The French-Canadian Regiment was made up of French soldiers who
had joined forces with Montgomery when the Rebels invaded Quebec to
remove the British and gain additional French support for their cause.
Unfortunately Montgomery was defeated and after being excommunicated by
Bishop Briand at least the French officers and their families were
exiled out of Quebec to New York. Her maternal Grandparents were Joseph
Francois Martin-Pelland born in 1771 in Berthierville, QC. He married
Archange Boucher in 1791 in Berthierville, QC.
