Klebaur - Daigle marriage Derby VT 1862

I am the GGGrandson of Jean Baptiste KLEBAUR (naturalized as John B. KLEBAUR) who was married to Angelique DAIGLE by Rev. S. Goodenough of The First Universalist Society of Derby, VT on Dec. 26, 1862.

The last that the family knew of Jean Baptiste was that he was a gunsmith in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, had a family and disappeared sometime in 1853. His wife, Madeline Schmeltz Klebaur and children returned to her family in New York City. Please see narrative and records at They had immigrated from Alsace to NYC earlier.

We were surprised to find this information of his second marriage, as we knew of no divorce or annulment of his first. Here are the Derby Clerk's minutes of the wedding:

State of Vermont Orleans CountyBe it remembered that at Derby in the county as aforesaid on the twenty sixth day of December in the Year of Our Lord 1862 John B. Klebaur of Brompton Falls in the County of Richmond & Province of Canada East & Angelique Daigle of Sherbrooke in the County of Sherbrooke, Province of Canada East were duly joined in Marriage by S. Goodenough, Pastor of the First Universalist Society in Derby, VT.

I cannot locate Jean Baptiste in any Canada database,or a record of his death, he seems to have disappeared from all Canadian records after the birth of his last child in St Hyacinthe in 1852. Perhaps he stayed in Vermont after the marriage.
