Jean-Baptiste Royer (b. abt. 1816, P.Q., Canada - d. 6-21-1899 at Ashland, NH, buried St. Cajetan's Catholic Cemetery, Mansonville, P.Q., Canada) married Anastasie/Tassie/Eliza Beaucage/Bocage (b. 10-5-1815, St. Roch de L'Achigan, P.Q., Canada - d. 1-7-1896, Ashland, NH, buried St. Cajetan's, Catholic Cemetery, Mansonville, P.Q., Canada).

The Jean-Baptiste Royer (b. abt. 1824) that married Luce Morin is another individual, perhaps a brother. I believe this may be them in the 1881 Canadian Census:

Check the dates of birth/marriage/death--they don't match up.

Also see the following 1881 Canadian census records.

In the 1881 Canadian Census for Potton, P.Q., Canada, this is where Jean B. (aka John) Royer and Anastasie (Eliza) Bocage were living. Also in their household is their daughter, Adaline/Adeline/Addie/Ada (Royer) Nason (Addie married Albert Nason) - SEE BELOW:

In this census, the name NASON is misspelled as MASON, and the Royer's first and last names are also misspelled as well.

Next door to them is believed to be their son, Henry Royer:

Henri/Henry Royer was said to be the oldest son, but the age given for him in this 1881 census doesn't match up for him being eldest child; Henri/Henry Royer is another mystery yet to be solved.

Their son, Paul Royer, and his wife, Sophie, are also living in this vicinity (the age given for Paul is older than the age given for Henri):
