Re: Bourg - St Louis Mo

I am descended from Jean Baptiste Creely and Elisabeth Bienvenu Delisle dit Delisle through their daughter Elizabeth, who married Peter Piant. Much of my information about the Creelys comes from the "Early U. S. French Catholic Church Records (Drouin Collection)" available at I see some minor discrepancies between my dates and your dates, which makes me wonder if there is another source of information. I would think that the parish records are about the only source. Now that I look more closely you have birth dates and I have baptismal dates, which probably means that there is a baptismal record which I have not found. Often there are 2 baptismal records, one of which has a birth date and one of which does not.

The person who was buried 2 Jun 1835 was Joseph Menard. His widow lived for many years and was buried 16 Jan 1878 as Mrs. Aurora Menard. She was 82 years old. I do not believe that she remarried. The Aurore Creely who married Baptiste Chapu 12 Nov 1840 is the widow of Louis Noel Bourck, who was buried 10 Jun 1835.

I have that Michel's daughter Aurore married Joseph Brisette 5 Feb 1844 (rather than 24 Jan).

Relative to the child:

5 Nov 1851 -- "I buried Michel, Marie, & Aurore, three children born at the same time Parents Mr Antoine Crilis & Md Philisitè Le Fèvre, they lived about 24 hours"

I assume they were born on the 4th and were buried on the 5th.

I would like to exchange more information on this family. My e-mail address is above. I have a database 'hnparker' in WorldConnect ( with considerable information on Creelys and Delisles and related families. I have some information on Peter Piant and his children.

Here is an example of double baptismal records:

28 Nov 1841 -- Salomon, fils de Baptiste Chapu & Aurore Crilis; born November 10; godparents Antoine Crilis & Victoire Chapu; 200/315

28 Nov 1841 -- Salomon Chapu, fils de Baptiste & Aurora Crilis; 300/315
