Re: Asa Meech & Margaret Docksteader - Quebec Canada

I am looking for information on the parents of Margaret Docksteader & Asa Meech as well as descendants of Asa & Margaret. I am pretty sure she is an ancestor of mine and am trying to establish the connection.

I have the marriage record of Margaret & Asa, it reads.

Married this sixth day of November eighteen hundred and twenty two by license Asa Meech of Hull district of Montreal Minister (widower) and Margaret Docksteader of Argenteuil spinster by me Joseph Abbott Rector of St Andrews.

signed by Asa Meech & M Docksteader

witnessed by: Mary Docksteader and Wm Teasdale

The copy is very poor but I compared it to other marriage entries by the same minister and made light and dark copies to piece it together. It was on LDS MicroFilm #1992904 St. Andrews 1821 - 1899. For the time period in question the church was called
"Church of England in St. Andrew and the Seignory of Argenteuil"

Argenteuil is in the province of Quebec, Canada. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Julie K
