I am looking for assistance, on the following surnames in Trois Rivieres Canada. Presse' Girard Deschamps Vanasse dit Precourt.
I descend from Pierre Girard Presse' married Marguerite Deschamps dit Laliberte, April 21, 1760 at Cathedrale des Trois - Rivieres, P Quebec.
Pierre was the adopted son of Joseph Francois Girard and Marie Anne Vanasse dit Precourt.
Hyacinthe-Oliver Presse' drew up a contract for Joseph & Marie Girard to raise Pierre Girard Presse'. Pierre was born between 1735-1740 and died July 1, 1809. Marguerite Deschamps dit Laliberte was born July 20, 1742 and died March 4, 1791. I have the following children listed for Pierre & Marguerite: Cecile, Pierre, Marie-Marguerite, Jean Baptiste, Marie-Therese, Michael-Ange, Joseph, Marie-Cecile, Francois, Louis, Charles-Antoine, Joseph Modeste, and Marie-Louise.
I am actually trying to trace more information on Pierre Girard Presse' I am hoping to possible locate information on his biological parents, and also any other information on Joseph & Marie Girard (the people who raised Pierre). I'm uncertain whether they legally adopted Pierre, if they were actually blood relatives to Pierre, or what? Anyone that could help solve this mystery it would be greatly appreciated.
My line from Pierre Girard Presse' moves on into Missouri, and Illinois, USA.
Thank you very much.
Rhonda (Roni) Pressey Miller
