Subject: [Q-R] DEMUTH burial in St. Joseph Beauce, 1869
Date: Wed, 13 Aug 2008 18:27:44 -0700 (PDT)
In a published repertoire of burials for Saint-Joseph de Nouvelle Beauce, 1737-2006, (Beauce County)I found the following extract on p. 580 for:
"DEMUTH, Louis, g. prison",
the burial date was 1869-02-03, with the death occuring on 1869-01-31, age ca. 72. His spouse was Elisabeth Gregoire and his parents Louis & Marie Blanchet.
My request is for someone with access to Drouin on Ancestry.ca to look at the actual entry for me. I would like to know whether the quoted "g. prison" is accurate, and hopefully, some context that would indicate its meaning. It may be that he was a guard (rather than an inmate!?) He had been a court bailiff in nearby Ste-Marie for years until 1860. A court and prison were completed in St. Joseph by 1862.
Very few of the other burial extracts included a notation of occupation.
