Looking for any information regarding the family of Sifrois (Sefroid/Sigfried) Gagnon and his wife Ozithee (Ozite/Zeta) Martin. They were listed as the parents of Loren Gagnon, born 27 Nov 1869 in Van Buren and died 25 Jul 1946 in Presque Isle. Loren married about 1891 to Louise Lavoie (Laveway). I think Ozithe was born around 1850 in St. Leonard to Simon Martin and Salome Violette. Does anyone have any further info on this family? Thanks!

Rich,
I think this is the Gagnon family you're referring to, they appear in the 1851 NB Census in St.Basile:
http://www.upperstjohn.com/1851/stb5.htm#10
Lines 51-55 (Orry is anglicized phonetic spelling of Henri)

51 | 75 | Orry Gagnon | M | H | 58 | French | Farmer (tenant) | March 1838 | | House
52 | 75 | Victoria Gagnon | F | W | 51 | | | | |
53 | 75 | Orry Gagnon | M | S | 15 | | | | |
54 | 75 | Sefrois Gagnon | M | S | 13 | | | | |
55 | 75 | Leloise Gagnon | F | D | 10 | | | | |


These are, I believe Sifrois's parents, Henri and Victoire, from the Repertoire des mariages de Kamouraska:

GAGNON, HENRY fils de LEON ET CHARLOTTE GAGNE
HUDON-BEAULIEU, VICTOIRE fille de LAMBERT ET LOUISE LIZOTTE
maries a KAMOURASKA - 1834-11-18 - Page No: 170

Let me know if you've got other questions on this.

One more bit of info.

Sifroi, son of Henri and Victoire Beaulieu, was married twice.

First marriage, to Philomène Bourgoin (daughter of Barthélémi and Elisabeth Martin), at St. Basile on 7 Nov 1864.

His second marriage was to Zité Martin (d. of Simon and Salomée Violette), at St.Léonard-Parent, 8 Nov 1870.

So if you have Loren's birthdate correct, he was most likely the son of Philomène rather than of Zité. You'd have to check for Philomène's date of death to confirm that.

Chip,

Thanks so much for your info. Yes, I had seen the 1851 census and saw Orry, figuring it must have been Henri. The birthdate I have for Loren is from his death record. On it, Ozithee is listed as his mother but it's very possible he never new his real mother if he was only 1 year old when Sifroi married Ozithee (Zite). I just don't have much on Sifroi as the 1851 Census is the only one I find him in, both U.S. and Canada. Loren was listed as born in Van Buren in 1869, but he's not in the 1870 U.S. census there. I have no idea who Loren's siblings were nor where and when Sifroi died.

Thanks for your help!
Rich

Chip,

Just found the death record on Philomene as 29 Aug 1869... 2 months before Loren was supposedly born. As I say, the birthdate for Loren is from his death record. According to the 1900 Presque Isle census, he was listed as born in Dec. of 1872, which would make him Ozithe's child. Only way to find for sure is checking St. Bruno's records... I don't find Loren in St. Leonard.

I checked the Van Buren records, no Gagnons baptized in November or December 1872 or Jan 1873.

Thank you for the great info! It is "Florent" that I was looking for initially. He went by Loren and his birth year recorded on his death certificate was wrong. I searched the St. Basile records online through the Drouin Collection but never came up with this information. Am still hoping to find a baptism for Sifroi.
Thanks!
