Name: Sister Therese Gregoire


My Location: Lacombe, Louisiana

Date: Wed 8/18/2004 12:00 AM


My great grandfather's brother, William Gregoire married Anne Marie Pulcherie Hubert in Salix, Woodbury, Iowa.
I have found conflicting marriage dates and I would like to verify the actual date/place of marriage

WILLIAM GREGOIRE was actually baptized Guillaume (the french equivalent) by his parents, Francois X. Gregoire and Nazarine Morin. He was born in the town of Wotton Quebec. ANNE MARIE P. HUBERT was the daughter of Francis Hubert and Aglae Lacroix and also came from Quebec. My grandfather (William's nephew) noted that his uncle was married in "Salix, Iowa, Woodbury County" but gave no date. I did find a date in 1901, but he had at least 3 children born before that, so I'm wondering if this is a second wife. Both were French Canadian Catholics. Any help I can get will be appreciated.

I am looking for information regarding WILLIAM GILBERT, specifically his marriage(s), parents, and siblings. My William Gilbert was born in Rochester, NY,  May 12, 1844, according to Civil War military records although oral history says Canada.  William served with the Illinois Infantry in Regiment 52 Company D out of Kane County, Illinois, 1864-65.  He married Virginia Dare MOLES from Virginia on Nov. 12, 1885 in Richland, SD, and they had three children:  Thomas J. b. Nov. 8, 1886; Martha Pearl b. Dec. 4, 1892; Mary Louise b. March 17, 1894.  Because of the ages of William and Virginia when they got married, we are guessing that one or both may have been married before.  We do know for sure that either Virginia or Martha was married and had children that were put up for adoption.  I am looking for information about William and his family.  I know nothing about his parents or siblings. William died in Sioux City on July 5, 1818. Can anyone help me out?  Any help would be appreciated
