By 1881 Charles is not with the family. Here are the Demers in 1891:

And in 1901:

Here is a baptism for son, Nazaire:

Nazaire Evangeliste Demers, b. 18 Sep, bap 20 Sep 1868 St-Etienne-de-Lauzon, Levis County, Quebec, son of Evangeliste Demers & Sara Demers. -godparents- Modeste Demers, paternal uncle & Virginie Demers, maternal aunt of the baby.

And Alphonse:

Joseph Alphonse Demers, b. 25 Oct, bap 25 Oct 1875 St-Agapit, son of Evangeliste Demers & Sara Demers.

And Emile:

Joseph Emile Demers, b. 23 Aug, bap 24 Aug 1885 St-Agapit, son of Evangeliste Demers & Sara Demers.

I could not find a baptism for son Charles, but I suspect he was baptized in St-Nicolas or some other parish in Levis County.

Here is a marriage for the parents:

Jean-Evangeliste Demers (Francoise Demers & Elizabeth Desrochers)
m. 26 Nov 1861 St-Nicolas, Levis County, Quebec
Sara Demers (Mathias Demers & Sophie Moffette)

Here is a baptism for Jean-Evangeliste:

Jean-Evangeliste Demers, b. 2 Aug, bap 3 Aug 1831 St-Nicolas, son of Francois Demers & Elizabeth Desrocher. -godparents- Jean-Gabriel Desrocher & Marguerite Demers.

Hope this helps. Annie
