Hi Daleanna

I sent this on Thursday but I have a feeling it did not reach you?

Great to hear from you too! I was happy to see Mary’s full name as all my records have her listed as La Butte.
Lucky you to have grandchildren!!!

Here is what information I have.
From the 1871 Raleigh Census under Essex/Kent
David Legue 26 years old born in the US, Roman Catholic, French Labourer .

From there I went to real 9891 for the 1871 census for Raleigh, Div 1 Page 23
David Legue Male 26 b US, Catholic and French Labourer
Wife Mary 26 born in Ontario, Catholic

Louisa age 5 in 1871
Sarah Ann age 3
Alfred…which I think is the David you re interested in was age 1

In the 1901 Census Page 12 #113-119
David Legue listed as born in May 1843 in the US
Mary (Wife) born July/1843 in Ontario
Louis born July 13 1892
Alex born October 4/1888
Mary (my grandmother) born June 17/1886

Also in the 1901 census there is a Fred (can’t make out the rest) that seems to fit your David.

Fred born September 14th/ 1869
Mary (Wife) born December 8th/1865
Percy born January 31st/1892
George born March 24th/1893
Ida born July 28th/1894
Lillie born March 31st/1896
Hiram born April 10th/1897
Catherine born May 24th/ 1898
Wilfred born June 13th/ 1900

In the Kent County Marriages for 1857-1869
On January 7th/1865 at St. Joseph’s Church, David Legue married Mary Labutte.
David Legue was 21 years of age. Presently living in Chatham, listed as being born in Newport, U.S. son of Mathew &____. Mary was 20 of Chatham and born in Chatham. Daughter of Peter and Catherine C. Witnesses: Julien Labutte of Chatham and Joseph Odette of Stoney Point.

The information taken from census, St Joseph Church and my father who is 85 and his sister are as follows:

Children of David and Mary Legue…I have a black and white picture of Mary.

Sarah Ann
Mary (my grandmother)
Margaret (Maggie Hastings)
Sofie (Married Joe Lachine)
Josephine (No children married Chalriae?)
Gordon (lived in Wisconsin US)
Louis (worked for Ford Motor Co.)
Alex (Madleine Gerber. Worked for a steel company and lost his leg)
Fred (Farmer in Raleigh)
Hye (Dad thinks that was his nick name and his real name was Joseph, was also a farmer)
Philomena (Married Fred Roesch, she died in 1906 at 25 years of age)

I don’t have a George and you don’t have a Sofie or Philomena.

From have your David Alfred Legue Born in 1869, died in 1951 Maple Leaf Cemetery, Chatham Ontario.
Marriage to Mary Boley born in 1863 (This information differs from what you have as 1865?) in Raleigh Township, she died in 1948. She was the daughter of George W Boley Born August 14/ 1846 in USA (died in 1923 in Kent County) and Catherine West born January 9/1842 in Canada. They were married February 25th/1862 in Raleigh Township. I have a list of their children. Children to this couple was Victoria born in 1898. I have information on George Boley's Parents.

I don’t think I have helped you much but I have enjoyed sharing information.
