My name is Laurie MacCoubrey Morettin. I too am searching for MacCoubrey's in the ValCartier area of Quebec. My great-grandfather, Moses MacCoubrey (also spelled Mc )was listed on the 1881 census (35 yrs old) in Bracebridge as coming from ValCartier and as being of Irish descent. He married Mary Jane (27 at the time of the census) whose last name I don't have, but she too was born in Quebec.
At that time they had the following children: John 8, Margariet 6, Hance 4, Henry, 2 and my grandfather, William, 6 mons. I have a list of the additional children which would bring the total to twelve in all.
Could the person(s) you are looking for in the earlier census be the parents of Moses and Elizabeth Jane a sister? I have just begun my search and information is limited. The ValCartier connection just surfaced and my cousin in AB put me onto your message. Feel free to email and ask questions and I will share all the info I have. Perhaps a comparison will produce some leads for both of us!
