Re: Looking for Anderson/Robichaud

I've still been working on this over the past few months.

First Catherine (Kate)Mallioux is definitely Fred's second wife.
Elizabeth Gallant must have died some time between the birth of my gg grandma in 1898 and when he married Catherine in Aug of 1899.

There are two death listings for Elizabeth Gallant in the NB archives in 1899.
The one that I thought was "my" Elizabeth isn't.
I was told the name of the spouse on the record and it's isn't a match.

The other one is for an Elizabeth S. Gallant.

I haven't been able to order it yet to find out if it's the correct one or not. But it's in Kent CO, not Northumberland so might not be right.

The marriage reg that I had found before and thought was Fred and Elizabeth was for the wrong family. So I had been looking for the wrong parents.

A genealogist in the area did some research for me. From that I've learned that Fred and Elizabeth's family is listed in the Dictionary of Robichaud families. But in a chapter that the author was not able to connect to any other family.
But it did say that Fred and Elizabeth's marriage took place in 1884 in Northumberland.
Problem is they searched through the records and could not find the listing.

From Fred's marriage cert with Catherine Mallioux, I've learned that his parents are Luc Robichaud and Archauge Arcenault. Fred was born in Pokemouche, New Brunswick.

I haven't been able to find any firm info on Archauge birth or parents. But her family with Luc is found fairly easily.
But to add to the mystery there is never any reference to a son Frederick!

The children listed for them are:
Mary, Ferdinand, Peter, Philias, Maurice, Nazaire, Anthony, Stephen Etinne.

I'm thinking that my Fred might be the Ferdinand as Fred/Frederic is a nick name for Ferdinand. But haven't confirmed it 100% yet. Also have not been able to find a birth reg for Frederic yet.

I hope that this helps anyone else looking, and if someone has more info to add it's much appreciated!
