Hello Carolyn, Thank you for your extensive search to help me solve this dilemma. Like you, I have found the info you describe so clearly.
I believe the Octave Nadeau who died in Westbrook Maine in 1901, was in fact an Octavie, possibly my Octave's sister. Several members of that family seem to have settled in Westbrook, and some are buried there.
My Octave died in a tragic train collision in April 1900, near Chapleau Ontario, Algoma District. I have found the gov't death record as well as the funeral record, neither which state his parents' names...unfortunately!
Arthemise and Octave had many children; those who survived infancy were Joseph, born Westbrook Me 1887, Emile 1888, Scholastique Parmelia(my grandmother)1890, Leon and Alma..the last four born in Chapleau ON
Yes, you have the correct family for Arthemise and her dates; Octave was apparently 31 for the 1891 Census, and 40 at the time of his death in 1900...never sure how accurate these things are, but born around 1860.
A family photo of Octave and Artemise says "after the wedding" 1882,appears to be a winter photo as she is wearing a fur coat. Photo was taken in Riviere-du-Loup Quebec.I have posted it on ancestry this morning.
In the ancestry trees you have looked at, one is obviously mine; I am investigating Remie and Pierre as possible fathers with the tree owners but I have found no source to uphold these theories.
Thank you Carolyn for your interest and search...let's find that elusive marriage record!
