Looking for marriage/ancestry information for Elizabeth Charpentier and Toussaint Fougere. Believe they are the parents of Louis Fougere, b 1877. This is all I have on them so far :

1881 census @ Harbour Boucher, Antigonish, Nova Scotia

...ang FOUGERE M Male French 51 Nova Scotia Farmer Roman Catholic
Elizabeth FOUGERE M Female French 42 Nova Scotia Roman Catholic
Edward FOUGERE Male French 21 Nova Scotia Seaman Roman Catholic
Mary Ann FOUGERE Female French 18 Nova Scotia Roman Catholic
Louis Philip FOUGERE Male French 3 Nova Scotia Roman Catholic

Toussaint appears to have died by 1891 & Elizabeth was remarried in 1893 to Nicolas Maillet
1891 - They were living in Lenwood, Antigonish, NS

27 Lenw 38 1 Fougere Elizabeth F 51 W Head N1NNC R
27 Lenw 38 2 Fougere Louis M 13 Son N1NNC RW

1901 - Tracadie, Antigonish
11 27 Myette Nichols M Head M Jan 9 1832 68
12 27 Myette Isabell F Wife M May 10 1832 68
13 27 Myette Luis M Son S Aug 8 1881 19
14 27 Myette Aberham M Son S Apr 5 1873 27

Louis went on to serve as a gunner in WW1 and I have found his enlistment papers. At some point the family moved to Souris,PEI. He married a Marie Marthe [listed as NOK on his military papers]. I am helping his great granddaughter trace her genealogy.
