Bonjour Bertrand, and to all a good day,
Great to see you piping in on this one. I was also doing the math this
morning and the only "spots" not taken, if I have all the other
children, are maybe in the Spring of 1764 or 1766, or maybe in the
Summer of 1768 (but then, poor woman...). Still, why would all the other
children be easily traceable and not this Joseph...
Does he show up anywhere as godfather to any of Archange MARCOUX's
children, or even as a witness to her marriages? Is he present at the
funerals of Joseph Marie MARCOUX or even at Elisabeth MENARD's funerals?
The fact that he uses SAINT-ONGE as his surname might indicate that he
was raised by his supposed grand-mother Elisabeth MÉNARD dit SAINT-ONGE.
This would tend to support the theory that Joseph was born out of
wedlock. But then there would still be a baptism somewhere...
It could also be that this Joseph is a child brought back from out
West...But of this, we have no tangible clues at all. Still....
Ah! Patty. Now you've got us intrigued too... :o))

> I have been following this thread with interest and I agree with the conclusions...except I have a lot of difficulty to find a place in the Marcoux/Emery family for an eventual surviving son. Browsing other marriages in St-Hyacinthe around the time of the Marcoux/Bouvier marriage, I notice that Joseph Marcoux is the only groom for whom the parents are not named. It is strange because Joseph Marie Marcoux, well enough to marry a third time in 1810, was living practically next door and should have attended...My little finger hints here at...an illegitimate child, maybe?
