Hi. I'm not related to this family. This may be a marriage record for his daughter from

Here is the family in 1900:

There is a Nelson King, b. 1857 Canada living in Penn in 1880 but he is alone, no family members. If his father's name was Simon, this may be Nelson as "Narcisse Roy" living in Quebec in 1871:

1871 Census of Canada about Narcisse Roy
Name:        Narcisse Roy
Gender:        Male
Age:        14
Birth Year:        abt 1857
Birth Place:        Quebec
Religion:        Catholic
Origin:        French
Province:        Quebec
District:        Dorchester East
District Number:        160
Division:        02
Subdistrict:        St Anselme
Subdistrict Number:        a
Household Members:        
Name        Age
Siméon Roy        38 b. 1833 Que.
Claris Roy        30 -wife- b. 1841 Que.
Thomas Roy        26 b. 1845 Que.
Marie Roy        21 b. 1850 Que.
Narcisse Roy        14 b. 1857 Que.
Joseph Roy        8 b. 1863 Que.
Herménégilde Roy 10 months b. May 1870 Que.

And in 1861:

1861 Census of Canada about Thomas Roy
Name:        Thomas Roy
Gender:        Male
Age:        16
Birth Year:        1845
Birthplace:        Lower Canada
Marital Status:        Single
Home in 1861:        Dorchester, Canada East
Religion:        Catholique R
Household Members:        
Name        Age
Simeon Roy 28 b. 1833 Que.
Marguerite Fortier 28 b. 1833 Que.
Marcel Roy 26 b. 1835 Que.
Thomas Roy         16 b. 1845 Que.
Narcisse Roy 4 b. 1857 Que.

In this case, I think everyone is the family is a wife or sibling to Simeon, except for Narcisse, who must have been a 1st born child.

Simeon Roy & Marguerite Fortier had one child born in 1858 who died soon thereafter:

Anonyme Roi, b. 5 Oct, bur. 7 Oct 1858 St-Anselme, Dorchester County, Quebec, son of Simeon Roi & Marguerite Fortier, age 1 hour.

Howver, I can't find a baptism for Narcisse in St-Anselme.

They did have a child Joseph:

Joseph Simeon Roy, b. 11 Nov 1862 St-Anselme, Dorchester County, Quebec, son of Simeon Roy & Marguerite Fortier.

Here is a burial record for Margueite Fortier:

Marguerite Fortier, d. 30 Aug, bur. 2 Sep 1867 St-Anselme, Dorchester County, Quebec, age 34 years, wife of Simeon Roy.

Here is Simeon Roy's marriage:

Simeon Roy of St-Anselme (Charles Roy & Anastasie Goulet)
m. 29 Jul 1856 Ste-Claire, Dorchester County, Que.
Marguerite Fortier (Simon-Pierre Fortier & Marie Louise Fournier)

Here is a baptism for Simeon:

Simeon Roy, b. 28 Apr 1833 St-Anselme, Dorchester County, Quebec, son of Charles Roy & Anasthasie Goulet.

Hope this helps. Annie
