Hi. I'm not related to this family. Here is a death record for Leon:

This might be the family in 1895:

There is also this marriage record for son Joseph:

This may be a more accurate last name for Leovide as I can find a marriage for this couple in the        Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967:

Joseph Lafontaine (Charles Lafontaine & Esther Bouchard)
m. 13 Jul 1874 Pointe-Gatineau (St-Francois-de-Sales), Hull County, Quebec
Leovide Damour (Charles Damour & Emilie Amiot)

Here is the next marriage in the line:

Charles Andre dit Lafontaine (Antoine Andre dit Lafontaine & Marie Charron)
m. 14 Feb 1831 St-Eustache, Deux Montagnes County, Quebec
Esther Bouchard (Joachim Bouchard & Josette Seaoth?)

Hope this helps. Annie
