The answer to that question, Bud, is obvious to every woman on this list, and one that is learned rather quickly by most clergy who perform baptisms: premature birth of the second child.

Interesting. Even more interesting is the fact that they were born only 6
onths apart to the same parents! What gives?

According to the record on two consecutive pages of the register of the parish
f St. Basile de Madawaska, Father Charles Hott, priest and pastor of that
arish, on 18 March 1806, baptised two sons of Joseph Tibeaudeau and Marie
osephte Cote, namely Firmin Theodule Tibeaudeau and Simon Maxime Tibeaudeau.
he record also indicates that Firmin Theodule was born on 12 January 1800,
imon Maxime on 28 July of the same year, and that both were baptised during
hat year by Messire Francois Vezina, missionary there at that time. There is
o reason given in the record for the second baptismal ceremony. However,
ccording to my own experience of nearly 40 years of priesthood, I am quite
ure the reason was that the records kept by Messire Vezina, missionary were
ither deteriorating or difficult to read. This was not simply a transcription
f the previous record, as indicated by the fact that, in addition to the marks
+ } of some of the
participants who were unable to sign their own names, there are names written
ut in a different hand than Father Hott.

n this page, there are two baptisms of two sons of Joseph Thibodeau &
rie-Josephte Coté, one for Firmin Thèodule, the other for Simon Maxime, both
18 Mar 1806. What is odd is that it seems Firmin was born 12 Jan 1800, Simon
28 Jul 1800. Can anyone figure out what is going on here? The URL is at the
