Hi Jill,
My info on ELI BERARD (my Great Grandfather) & his wife Olisime:
Eli Berard, b. Dec 24, 1844, St. Barthelemy, PQ, emigrated with parents and siblings 1852 to Illinois, later moved to Rulo Nebraska. Last heard from in 1879 when he left on an expedition to the Black Hills of South Dakota with his younger brother Gaspard (who died on the trip).
Dec 26, 1870, Immaculate Conception Church, Rulo, Nebraska, married Olisime Guennette, d. 1873 from childbirth complications. Olisime was the daughter of Antoine Joseph Guennette and Marguerite Boudreau, who had 12 children, including Olisime. Eli & Olisime's child, Daniel, was adoped soon after birth by Eli's older brother Ambrose & wife.
Jill, I wasn't sure whether you had this info since your msg is 6 months old, but am supplying it here just in case you did't.
Cousin Joe
