  Because there are so many records I have split them up and associated them with the index individuals shown above.  The records are arranged chronologically for each index individual.  Each record is preceded by a “record number”—the date of the record in YYYY-MM-DD format.  Transcriptions of the Quebec Catholic parish records (and all of these parish records are Catholic), in French, may be found in the document “St George - Transcriptions.doc”.  The Quebec Catholic parish records always name the mother by her maiden name.

 

  Records pertaining to in-laws (the baptism record for the spouse, and the marriage record for her parents, for instance) are indented.  Records wholly pertaining to the grandchildren are indented and colored green.  Auxilliary records (included because they are of interest) are indented twice and colored brown.

{LR alerted me to this record.  She believed that Joseph and Peter were sons of Francois & Flavie.  This record verifies the ID of Joseph St. George bapt. 16 Oct. 1844 (see record above) as son of Francois & Flavie, in spite of the surname error for Flavie.  I think Francois & Flavie themselves were back in Canada by 1870.  Francois died there in 1876 (see below).  This record is also interesting because it verifies that “Harper” was an Americanization of “Harpin” (see below).}  [1870 U.S. Census, Brookfield, Worcester Co., MA, roll M593_651, p. 500, image 496, lines 13-29.]
