Posted: 1179786398000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Gervais, Jarvis, Hill
I try to attached that couple to the Gervais tree:
Who are William Gervais/Jarvis's parent's? Their marriage date and location.
The couple is : William C. Gervais and Josephine Hill.

The known facts about this couple:
According to the 1901 canadian census in Richmond
William C. Javris french speaking, Baptist church, born circa January 8 th, 1876. Work as a carpenter.
For this couple 2 known children:
In the Catholic parish of Ste-Bibiane, Richmond:
1. Joseph Gervais born June 5 th, 1903 from the lawfull marriage of William Gervais and Josephine Hill.
Godfather: Joseph Bacon and Rosalie Hill.

2. Marie Dorisse Jarves or Jarvis, born Feb. 12 th, 1906 same parish as Joseph, (Wiliam Gervais is under Willie)


According the 1901 census, Josephine is born July 27 th, 1875.
Then I found that her father is Robert Jr. Hill married Oct. 25, 1869 to Celanire Daoust in a catholic parish of Danville.
A special permission because Robert Hill is a protestant.
He is a widow from his precedent marriage with Martha Jarvis.
Robert Jr Hill married Martha Jarvis in 1851 Danville.
What we know about Robert is known as Junior so he is the son of a Robert Senior Hill. Robert is born in England.
According to the 1881 census in Cleveland, Richmond County, Quebec.
Robert Hill, 48 years old, born in England, "Church of England"
his wife Celene (Celanire Daoust) Catholic, 32 years old
children: George, 10 years old, Catholice
Alexandre, 7 years old, Catholic
Josephine, 4 years old, Catholic (She married William Jarvis)
Joseph, 2 years old, Catholic
Rosela (baby), she is the godmother of Joseph Gervais.
She is also known as Rosa or Rosalie.
She married Joseph Bacon, July 22 th, 1895 in Ste-Bibiane, Richmond.
1901 Census, Richmond
Robert Hill is 68 years old, birth date: Nov. 24 th, 1832
wife Salina (Celanire) b. May 1 th, 1850.
2 children: Emma March. 3 th, 1887, Annie Dec. 28 th, 1890.

Next to Robert:
his son George Hill, b. July 28 th, 1870, 30 years old
with wife Annie, children Georgie Ann b. Sept. 5, 1896,
Albert, b. June 28 th, 1898, Alfreda b. Nov. 11 th, 1899.

1911 Census Richmond,
I found only George Hill, 39 years old, born July 1871, Electrician, Catholic, english speaking
2 children: Georgina b. Sept. 1896, 14 years old
and Freda (Alfreda) born Nov. 1899, 11 years old.
I don't collect infos about the Hill family only about the Gervais/Jarvis of the Richmond, Drummond area in Province of Quebec.
I hope to clarify that enigma...

Warm regards, Lou
