When you post dates use the format 2 Nov. 1814 or 11 Feb. 1814. We can't tell from your date which is Mary's birthdate.
Have you found the marriage record for this couple in Monkton, VT? Were there other families by these names in the area? If there were, you might be able to trace them and see if they come from one town or area in Quebec.

Good luck in your research!
