Descendents of Narcisse Daigneault and Domitilde Perras

Lately I've become somewhat obsessed with tracing every descendent of Narcisse and Domitilde Daigneault, my great great grandparents. So I thought I'd share what I have so far, and see if I can find any second or third cousins in the process!

Narcisse and Domitilde married and started having kids in Quebec, but eventually moved to St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba, where most of their descendents would be born.

If you're related to me, or if you want me to cite some sources, feel free to email me. Also, I'm quite active on WikiTree, and Narcisse's profile is here:

Narcisse Daigneault (b. January 23, 1845, in Quebec; d. November 16, 1932, in St. Boniface, Manitoba) and Domitilde (Matilda) Perras (b. October 12, 1848 in Quebec) were married on January 31, 1865, in Sherrington, Quebec. They had the following 13 children (that I know of):
1. Josephine (b. December 3, 1865, in Quebec; d. September 30, 1928, in Tache, Manitoba)
2. Joseph-Honorius (b. November 30, 1867, in St. Philippe, Quebec; d. July 29, 1952, in Winnipeg, Manitoba)
3. Narcisse Emile (Emilien) (b. November 17, 1869, in Montreal, Quebec)
4. Adelard (Adel) (b. November 15, 1874, in Quebec; d. February 28, 1925, in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba)
5. Arcandine (b. abt. 1877 in Quebec)
6. Clara (b. abt. 1879 in Quebec; d. May 4, 1883, in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba)
7. Rosa (b. abt. 1880 in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba) (She's not in any censuses after 1881, so she probably died as an infant.)
8. Marie (b. January 30, 1883, in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba) (She probably also died as an infant.)
9. Aurore (b. January 1884 in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba)
10. Marie Louise (b. abt. 1886 in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba)
11. Marie Anne Alberta (Bertha) (b. May 13, 1887, in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba; d. 1966 in Otterburne, Manitoba)
12. Joseph Francois (b. November 7, 1889, in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba) (He doesn't appear on any census records, so he probably died an infant.)
13. Josephat (b. abt. November 1890 in St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba)

Bertha's children did not have many children. I know Mary had a son, who I assume is still living. My grandmother had lots of children (and grandchildren, and great grandchildren) all of whom are still living.

I hope someone finds this helpful! Again, e-mail me if you want to know more (or check WikiTree), or if we are related!
