Pierre Lavigne b. 1822 New Brunswick & Marie Couture

Hi All,

The following info is what I have on my GGgranparents Pierre Lavigne and Marie Couture.

My branch is through their daughter my Ggrandmother Anna Lavigne b.1865 who married Placide LeBlanc in 1890 in St.John New Brunswick.

In 1900 they migrated to Leominster in Worcester Massachusetts. In the 1900 US Federal Census my Ggrandfather is listed as Percy White with wife Anna and their 3 children Charles, Alfred and Mary Edith. My Ggrandmother Anna remarried in 1905 to Benjamin Dugay. I have never been able to find out the date or place of my Ggrandfather Placide LeBlanc/Percy White death. There is no record of his death in Leominster and so far I have not found a record of his death in New Brunswick. Sure could use some help with this.

I would be interested in connecting with anyone who has info or is connected to this Lavigne or LeBlanc family.
