I don't have a birth certificate for him and so the birthdate has to be 'estimated' off the census right now. I hate doing that because the census enumerators were notorious for making mistakes (No!) and so makes the information unreliable. Not only that, but most of their handwriting was/is hard to read.
Anyway, I am more so interested in researching Abraham's parents, Louis LaChapelle and Eliza Sedore. If you come accross any information about them I would love to see it.
Unfortunately, it may well be that I will have to make a 'research holiday' out east to Ontario to search the parish records myself one day. I do have a pretty good pedigree file on this LaChapelle family, but the person who gave it to me could not give me any source documentation for any of the information and so, I have to treat it as speculative research for now. I'm an advocate for source documentation.
