Prefontaine / Fortin marriage - late 1860s to 1880

Am looking for any info on the union of Caroline Prefontaine and John Fortin.

Info I have:

Caroline Prefontiane, born 1851, probably in Upton, Quebec, Canada, to Firmin Prefontaine & Mathilde Desautels.

Married John Fortin, probalby in the USA, possibly near Worchester, Maine.

Caroline's family emigrated from Quebec in the 1860s-70s. Recently discovered that they had been in Worchester, Maine in 1870 prior to settling in Greenfield, Massachussetts, and finally in Manitoba, Canada in 1880. Caroline did not follow the rest of the family to Manitoba so I presume that she was already married by 1880 and stayed in the USA with her husband. She also was not listed with her parents and sibblings the census data of 1870 in Westbrook, Maine whihc means that she may have already been married to John Fortin by then.

Please email me directly with any info. Thanks.
