Re: Nelson FLEURY from CN, NY, MN, MI

In Reply to: FLEURY from CN, MN, NY... by J of 585

I just got Nelson Fleury's d. cert. today.

Nelson FLEURY d. 6-10-1881 age 67 Polk CO. MN
(b. 1814)Canada. White.
Father: William FLEURY b. Canada
Mother: Mariane COURROUIER b. Canada

I still cannot find his wife:
DELIA's last name.
She was b. 7- 1822 d. 1903 Polk Co. MN

The family rumors said after they came from Canada they were in Essex Co. NY.
There is a Nelson Fleury m. Louisa FOUNTAIN in 1864 at Westport...which puts "my" Nelson at the age of 60.
Could be that he married a couple of times?
Maybe "Delia" is Adeliade?
Another rumor from my family is that when the
Fleury's came to Canada from their home country...they intermarried with Native Indians in Canada. I haven't been able to prove this. I do not know Delia's background other than census reports said she could not read or write nor speak English.
