Baptism cert for this child did state "legitimate marriage", but I have not found any record of marriage regularization. Note, however, that there is a record of another child born two years later at "Green Bay" (this is written in English in otherwise French certificate); this cert somewhat illegible but clearly same parents, and appears to state that the child was born of a "liaison". Perhaps this cert indicates that the "regularization" was not proved?? All very curious. Anglican marriage cert gives witness names; one appears to be related to wife, and first son born a year later is given that name. Could be wife's father? Second child born at "Green Bay" is named for his own father. Make any sense? Love a mystery...
