Seeking info: PETER GIARD, born Canada Aug. 1823, came to US 1877; and daughter ODILLE GIARD, born in MA. Aug. 1860, who married FELIX GATINEAU June 20 1882.
In a 1920 newspaper article noting the 50th anniversary of Daniel and Mary (Marie) Dumas of Southbridge, Mary referred to Odille Gatineau as her sister.
But Mary's parents were Joseph Bourassa/Burrows and Celestia 'Sally' (Potvin) Bourassa/Burrows. Mary was born in 1852, and her father died in 1854. Odille Giard, as noted, was born in 1860.
Did Celestia get re-married to Peter Giard? Were Mary and Odille half-sisters or step-sisters?
