Need Brousseau Family Help!!!
Posted by: Charlene Crosthwaite Date: October 17, 2001 at 08:10:49
  of 381

I believe my great-grandmother is the daughter of Augustin Brousseau and Leocadie Bourgeois. Would love to find anything to connect her to them. Have the following:

Augustin Brousseau married Leocadie Bourgeois 1843 in Contrecouer, Canada.

I have proof that these children are theirs...

Louis born 1844 Canada
Ferdinand b. 1848 Canada
Frederic b. abt. 1854 Canada
David b. Canada
Menore b. Canada

My great-grandmother is Philomene Brousseau born in February 1852. She would fit into the line, but on her marriage record to my great-grandfather her father is listed as "Lewis Bruso". She is only 5 years younger than the above Louis. Was Augustin Brousseau "Louis Augustin" or Augustin Louis", or was her father someone else all together?

George and Philomene "Brousseau" Messier/Macia lived in the same areas as the above Brousseaus and Leocadie is listed as the Godmother "sponsor" for one of their children.

I have been trying without success for several years and so far haven't been able to find the connecting link.

I would appreciate any help! Thank you ever so much!
