In Reply to: Prefontaine / Fortin marriage - late 1860s to 1880 by Marcel Victor Prefontaine of 27

First of all, I don't know what I was thinking whenI wrote Worchester, ME; it should read WESTBROOK, ME.

Additional info obtained:

CAROLINE SOPHIE MELVINA PREFONTAINE, b. Dec 19, 1851 Beloeil, QC, Canada.; emigrated from Canada in 1867 with her parents and younger sibblings; d. July 16, 1930 Portland, ME; m. around 1871, probably in ME to
JOHN/JEAN FORTIN. He was born August 11848 in Quebec, Canada.

The couple resided in Westbrook, ME in 1880 and where still there in 1900.

The couple appaently had 2 children:

1. OVIDE J. FORTIN, born Aug 1872 in Portland (?), ME. He married around 1898 to ALEXINA GUIMOND who was born in 1868 in Quebec, Canada. The couple had at least one son named JEAN (JOHN) FORTIN, Born 1899 in Maine (probably Westbrook).

2. FLORA FORTIN, possibly born in 1875 in Maine. She died Jan 20, 1927.

Have no additonal info? Anyone have any to share or know of any potential descendants?
