Joseph LEDUC is my great grand uncle, brother to my great grandmother Julia "Lucie" nee LEDUC VIAU. I have copies of the parish baptisms on both Joseph & Lucille (Lucie, Julia", 1835 & 1838. If you will scroll near the end of paragraph two, you will find Julia VIEO (Veio, Viau), mentioned as Joseph's sister. The parents of Joseph and Julia are Joseph LEDUC and Amarante (Emerance, Emertienne, Marie Anne) PROVOST. This is the first time I have validated a sibling of my great grandmother.
In Joseph's obit you will find that he was married to sisters, Nellie and Emeline nee LEDUC. Well naturally when a LEDUC marries a LEDUC, I become curious. So I started looking for U.S. census records---first in New York---and then in Michigan.
I'm not going to post everything about the census records I've found in this message but I will say this.
1870 Cheboygan, Cheboygan, MI, enum. July 29, 1870--listed as LEDUGUE
Gabriel and wife Zoe and (8) of their children (Emeline in the home, Nellie is not) are living next door to
Joseph and wife, Nellie and (1) child.
1880 Inverness, Cheboygan, Michigan, enum June 8/10, 1880, both Dist. 35--LADUKE
Gabriel and wife, Zoe and (3) children (Emeline, age 16 at home)
Joseph and wife Nellie and (3) children
1880 June 8/10, Census
1880 August 4, Nellie expires
1880 December 5, Joseph and Emeline wed, Inverness, Cheboygan, MI
I don't know if I'm right or wrong but it looks like Joseph Leduc married two of Gabriel Leduc's daughters. I have many Cheboygan news articles to gather regarding early deaths of the children of both sisters and marriages of Nellie and Emeline's children. I do have several BMS records already that I have retrieved from the LDS pilot site, plus Quebec, and will be looking for more.
This is a bizarre search and I can't help but wonder if there were more than one marriage in Quebec, within a specific time frame, between persons with the same names: Joseph-Thomas LEDUC and Elisabeth BOURBEAU. But if not, my great grand uncle, Joseph LEDUC married two of his uncle, Gabriel LEDUC's daughters.
Joseph-Thomas Leduc & Elisabeth Bourbeau
(2) of their sons:
Gabriel married Zoe Lefebvre
Joseph married Amarante Provost
Joseph and Amarante's son, Joseph married both Nellie & Emeline Leduc.
Was this common practice? I know cousins intermarried---but this other finding is mind-challenging.
Your feedback is greatly respected and needed. I'm befuddled.
