In Reply to: Info on Louis Longpre' by Paul J. Longpre' of 485

Paul & Nicole,
I have 8 children for Louis Longpre & Marie Angelique langlois dit Jannot dit lachapelle.
Louis, 19 July, 1758, m. 4 July 1758 to Marie-Angelique Marsille, d. before May 1822 when his widow remarried.
J-B, 6 Jan, 1761, m. 25 Sept, 1786 Marie Josephe Lajoie Mercier, d. 24 July 1850.
Pierre, 12 April 1762, s. 29 Aug 1762
Francois,1765, d. 4 Feb, 1770
Pierre, b. 1770, m. 27 June 1791 Marie Charlotte Janot, d. ?
Laurent, 15 Sept 1765, d. 25 Feb 1773
Basile, 10 Feb 1768, m. 8 Oct 1810 Josephte Hethier or Ethier, d. 12 June 1858
Laurent, 1 Oct 1772, d. 25 Feb 1773.

these are the highlights on the information that I have on this family.

I do not have any other Louis from a date close enough to be the same person.

To answer Nicole's question why adopt? That family often took in children. Maybe Catherine was a wet nurse. Also they lost parents in those days due to the harshness of the life and the Iroquois their sworn enemies. There is also the possibility that they took in captives. I think that the url that was posted here on Canadian History is going to be a boon for myself. I have the book The Canadian Frontier 1534-1760 by W. J. Eccles and found it most helpful for an American to get a feel for the early Canadians. Does anyone else have a title to offer?
