Hoping some one can help me, I have a Arthur/Andrew Potvin from Vermont, whom on his death and 2nd marriage record states that his parents were Thomas Potvin and Mary/Philense/Philinse Cushing/Courchesne. I recently came up with a 1901 census of Granby Quebec of a Michel and Philinise Potvin. I was wondering if anyone would know for sure if this couple could be the parents of Arthur/Andrew. We have a birth of Feb 13 1879 Granby Quebec that was seen on Arthur's death record. His 2nd marriage as well as death record said he was born in Granby.
I also have seen in Ancestry a Lora Potvin b Mar 18 1875 whom was a daughter of Michel Potvin and Marie Courchesne, she could be their oldest child not included in the 1901 census of Granby Village Quebec.
This Arthur/Andrew married Julia Menard in Canada, This was her second marriage with at least 5 Cote/Cota Children from her first marriage (3 Cote children were included in Vermont 1910 census listed as stepchildren to Arthur) and Arthur and Julia having two children: Antoine Potvin b Jan 2 1901 Canada and Rodolphe Potvin b Mar 8 1903 Granby.
On the 1901 Granby Villiage Census of Michel Potvin, his birth was not included but was age 46, and Philinise was listed as born Apr 28, 1856 age 44. So Michel should be born abt 1854. Included in household are children:
Moise Potvin: b June 20 1880 age 20
Clara Potvin b July 9 1885 age 15
Willie Potvin b May 9 1890 age 10
Heline Potvin b July 28 1893 age 7
Rose Potvin b Aug 19 1894 age 6
If anything here sound familar or if some one could verify that This same Michel Potvin and Philinese are the parents of Arthur/Andrew Potvin b. Feb 13 1879 Granby. Your help will be much appreciated.
