Sorry, but no I don't. Back then, formal adoptions weren't too common. If members of a family lost someone through death, other family members would just step up to the plate and take care of those who needed to be taken care of, raised, sheltered, educated, etc. A far cry from today's world. Chances are that someone in the family (probably a close reative) did just the same with your Marie-Anne. Can't tell you more. There just aren't enough adoption records from way back then available to research. If there are, it's news to me. Happy Holidays
