Hi Henry,

I see from another of your posts that they were living in PEI.

This seems to fit for them.


Francis, age 33, farmer, born May 8, 1867 PEI

Emelie, age 33, wife, born June 9, 1867 PEI

Axela, age 6, daughter, born Aug. 27, 1894 PEI (name looks like Adela in image)

Evangeliste, age 4, daughter, bon Aug. 3, 1896 PEI

Louis, age 2, son , born May 11, 1898 PEI (may be 17th)

Marie, age 11/12, daughter, born May 18, 1900 PEI

all are shown as being French


next door to them in another Aucoin family so perhaps parents of Francis


Amable, age 68, farmer, born March 10, 1832 PEI

Marguerite, wife, age 55, born July 6, 1845 PEI

Joseph, son age 30, farmer's son, born Aug. 29, 1870 PEI

Marie, daughter, age 27, born July 23, 1873 PEI

James, son, age 20, farmer's son, born May 14, 1881 PEI

Sophia, daughter, age 14, born Dec. 25, 1886 PEI


I went to 1891 census to see if I could find Amable and Marguerite to see if they have a son Francois/Francis

I believe this is the right family AND son Frank matches with age for Francis in 1901 census.

Lernob, age 48, farmer

Maggie, age 38, wife

Frank, age 23, son, lumberman

Joseph, age 20, son, fisherman

Mary, age 16, daughter

Ferman, age 13, son

James, age 10, son

Sophia, age 4, daughter

the names above are as indexed, in the image Ferman is Filman, Lernob does look like that in the image ?

all are shown born PEI with both parents born PEI

I only found one Emelie Gaudin of right age in 1891 census


Peter, age 82, shoemaker born NB father born Nova Scotia mother born Quebec

Adelle, age 60, wife, born Quebec parents both born Quebec

Antaine, age 28, son shoemaker (looks like Antoine in image)

Paul, age 23, son, shoemaker

Emile, age 24, daughter

all the children born PEI father born NB mother born Quebec

I went to the PEI online archives and there is a Francois Aucoin born APril 10, 1868 baptized May 30, 1868, son of Amable Aucoin and Marguerite Poirier

so this means either the fellow in 1901 is the right one OR he is not as the birthdate shown in the census does not agree BUT
I tend to think he is the right one and whoever gave the info to the census taker got it wrong which is quite common in census records.
With him living right next door to Amable and Marguerite it seems very likely he is their son and they do have a son of right name and age in 1891 census.

At same site IU found some children of Francois Aucoin and Emilie Gaudain/Gaudin/Godain (the various spellings used)

Adoline Evangeliste born Aug. 3, 1896

Louis, born May 17, 1898

Marie Alvina born May 18, 1900

Francois Antoine born May 2, 1903

Catherine Angeline born March 23, 1905

Sophie Olive born Sept. 23, 1906

Emilie Bernadette born Oct. 3, 1908

Marguerite Helene, born March 17, 1911

Pierre Amable born Oct. 6, 1912

so missing is daughter Axela who is with them in 1901 census, but there is a Marguerite Adele Aucoin born Aug. 1, 1894 to Francosi Aucoin and Emelie Gaudet who I think is likely her. As you see some of the dates of birth for other children do not exactly agree with the census but again that is quite normal for census records.This would also make sense for her to be named Adele if that is in fact the name of Emelie's mother ??

There is no marriage database there though which is too bad as that may have helped to confirm the parent's names for Francois and Emilie

I can go further back in census if you would like.
