Many descendants of Francois Bleau/Blau and Catherine Brosseau are found in the northern section of Clinton County NY. We know they married in L'Acadie, Quebec on 20 October 1817. I have researched the original church records of that parish and found three baptisms: Catherine Blau baptised on 18 Sept 1818, Francois Xavier Blau baptised on 10 Jan 1821 (born on the 9th Jan), Josephte Bleau baptised and born on 19 March 1823. and Pierre Blau baptised and born on 20 Oct 1824, all of the same parents and all baptised at Ste Marguerite-de-Blainfir church in L'Acadie, Quebec. And, I also found another son baptised in the neighboring town of Henryville: Joseph Moyse (Moses) Bleau was baptised (and born) on 20 Feb 1837 in the church of St George-de-Noyan, in Henryville, Quebec. These records will fill in a lot of gaps in your genealogical records. Bob Maurier
