October 20, 2011:
Good morning to all of you.
I have been searching one of our genealogical lineage:
- Thomas Fogarty and Mary Devine. It seems they were reported married April
18 1861, St-Frs-de-Sales, Gatineau Qc.
Went through all the Fogartys (I think so) on your web site and can not
find that couple...
Their marriage certificate from the Gatineau church is not clear on their
parents' name: William's father's name is spelled Martin Fogerte and the
mother Elizabeth Lilles?; while Mary's Devine is spelled Davoide, her
parents being Ones and Catherine Harvev?.
The reason for this research's clarification is that we want to find the
real parents of Thomas and Mary who in the Bouchette book are spelled
Thomas Fogarthy and Mary Devine with children such as Mary-Ann, Thomas,
Elizabeth, Brigitte, Ellen, William and so on...
So, we are wondering if you could bring in any clues on this couple.

Roger wants to determine, for sure, both of the persons in the photograph
