I guess I just needed to post my vent in order to find my missing Mathieu. He was born July 4 1807 to the parents I suspected him with. I am just so happy ya'll don't know!

I have looked through all the Drouins for St Ours for the 1810 time frame and have not come across any Michel Mathieu. I did find a Michel Mathieu born in 1810 in Yamaska which is 30 miles from St Ours and one born in 1805 in St Ours. I am hoping to obtain a copy of his death certificate soon so that I can see it for myself to verify dates and who gave the information.

I have never blogged before but have been a stalker on many sites. I am hoping to use this blog as an accountability tool for my own research. My goals for this summer are to find proof one way or the other that my husband's Mathieu ancestor Michel Mathieu, who came to the US from Canada in the 1860s is descended from Joseph Mathieu and Marie Papillon. I have heard that his parents are listed on his death certificate, but would like to find other more direct sources.
