The way the dates are, if they are correct, it's almost impossible to have
babies that close together.......unless the second one was a preemie....
and in those days, they usually didn't survive.

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

According to the record on two consecutive pages of the register of the
parish of St. Basile de Madawaska, Father Charles Hott, priest and pastor of
that parish, on 18 March 1806, baptised two sons of Joseph Tibeaudeau and
Marie Josephte Cote, namely Firmin Theodule Tibeaudeau and Simon Maxime
Tibeaudeau.  The record also indicates that Firmin Theodule was born on 12
January 1800, Simon Maxime on 28 July of the same year, and that both were
baptised during that year by Messire Francois Vezina, missionary there at
that time.  There is no reason given in the record for the second baptismal
ceremony.  However, according to my own experience of nearly 40 years of
priesthood,  I am quite sure the reason was that the records kept by Messire
Vezina, missionary were either deteriorating or difficult to read.  This was
not simply a transcription of 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 out in a different hand than Father Hott.

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