An interesting note. When couples were married they and wedding attendees were asked to sign the Marriage Register. In most cases there were no signatures, only a note stating that they could not sign. However, when Antoine Mignault and Marie-Elmina Plourde married there were a series of signatures in the Marriage Register as follows: Elmina Plourde, Hermine Mignault, Baptiste Plourde, Julie Plourde, Thecle Plourde, Eugenie Plourde, Thomas Bouchard, and Alphonse Lebrun. The priest was N.H. Theriault. Notice that her sisters signed their maiden name even though they were married. It appears that all knew how to write.
