I have Victoire Fougère with her parents in the 1891 census. It is indicated that she is 7 years old which would put the date of birth around 1874. Her parents are listed as Ferdinand Fougère age 35 (born about 1846) and Élisabeth Fougère age 30 (born about 1851). They were in household no 88 Shediac Westmorland Co. NB.

I have found Élisabeth Fougère's death information at the NB Archives on-line. She died in Shediac NB on February 14, 1946. According to the information she was 92 years old being born in 1854. Her husband Ferdinand is deceased. Her parents are listed as Marin Cormier and Lucie Collette.

Isabelle is often used instead of Élisabeth in French. There is an Isabelle Cormier born in Bouctouche NB on March 19, 1856 to Marin Cormier & Marie-Luce Collette. The godparents are Denis Léger & Scholastique Cormier. (1)

Marin Cormier married Luce Collette in Bouctouche on October 18, 1841. No parents are listed. The witnesses were Maximin Collette & George Collette. (2)

Also, I have found at the NB Archives the death information for Ferdinand Fougère. He died in Shediac on September 19, 1942. His parents are listed as Thomas Fougère & Henriette Petitpas.

Thomas Fougère (Honoré Fougère & Madeleine Bellefontaine) married Herniette Petitpas (Nicholas Petitpas & Apolonie Vautour) in Grande-Digue NB on October 28, 1844. Witnesses were Honoré Fougère - father of the groom & Nicholas Petitpas - father of the bride. (3)

I hope this information is helpful. If I can be of any further help, please let me know.
