Here is this family in 1901:

This couple also had a son, Treffle Jean-Baptiste Benoit. Here is his baptism from the

Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967:

Treffle Jean-Baptiste Benoit, b. 22 May, bap 24 May 1902 St-Luc, St-Jean, Quebec, son of Treffle Benoit & Josephine Denault -godparents- Jean-Baptiste Lapalme & his wife Aurelie Lamontagne.

Josephine died in 1904. Here is a burial record for her from the Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967:

Josephine Denault, 28 Sep, bur 30 Sep 1904 St-Luc, St-Jean, Quebec, wife of Treffle Benoit, artisan of this parish.

Now, if you look at Treffle's 2nd marriage at Familysearch.org you will find TWO records. One says that his father's name is Moise I Benoit. The other one says his father's name is Isidor Benoit:

"Massachusetts, Marriages, 1841-1915," Treffle Benoit, 1907

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/N4DP-7J8

I'm not certain, but I think maybe the above is more likely to be the correct names for Treffle's parents, along with his parents marriage that I referenced above, i.e. Isidore Benoit & Emilie Gabouriaut dit Lapalme.

Here is the Benoit family in 1881:

Hope this helps. Annie
