Who were these SAVAGE children's parents?

Surnames: SAVAGE
Searching for the parents of Rose Ann, Alexander, Edward, Francis and Mary SAVAGE.

Rose Ann was born about 1844 in Valley Field, Quebec, Canada.
Alexander was born 15 May 1847 in Canada, perhaps Montreal.
Edward was born 28 August 1848 (Obituary shows NY state).
Francis was born 4 April 1851 in Canada.
Mary was born in 1852 in Canada.

Edward, Francis, and Mary were found living with Lewis Cotuan/Cutwa and Josephine ? in 1860 in Oswegatchie, St. Lawrence County, New York.
Rose Ann and Alexander were found living in St. Lawrence County, New York in 1870. Alexander's brother, Francis was living with him, then.

Francis said his parents were Charles Savage from Ireland and Josephine Cassay from France.
Edward said Joseph Savage and Josephine ? were his parents.
Another child, Louisa, born in 1856 in Ogdensburg, St.Lawrence County, New York said her parents were Alexander and Eliza Savage. She is also found living with Lewis Cotuan/Cutwa and Josephine ? Cutwa in 1860, using the Cutwa name.
According to Louisa's death record, her maiden name was Savage.

Josephine ? stated on the US census in 1860, 1870, and 1880 that she was born in Canada and about 1824 or 1827.

Who was Josephine? Was she their mother or step-mother or even possibly their sister? Did she change her given name when she came to the US? What happened to this family between the time Mary was born in 1852 and 1860 when they are found in the US?

There is another possibility, being Jean Olivier Sauvage and Rose Delphine (Vernier) who were living in Quebec, Canada when their children were born.
Birth information for three of the children, Alexander, Francis, and Mary, matches information for children with the same names born to Jean and Rose Sauvage.

Anything anyone can tell us about this family will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Judith Haskins
