Florence Perrotte (Jacques Perrotte and Josephte Caille dit Biscornet) m. 6 February 1837, St-Edouard-Napierville Julien Lestage (Louis Lestage and Catherine Monet)

She had at least two surviving children, Julien and Flavie, by the first marriage. See under Paro/Perrotte.

1870 census, South Hero. Her death record indicates her maiden name as Florence Parot, b. c. 1816, St. Edwards P.Q., dau. of Joseph Parot and Josette Bijiou, d. 13 June 1878, Grand Isle, aged 62 years 5 months 2 days.

It is POSSIBLE that the man who appears on the census records at John Bushway was in fact Julien Lestage _fils_, son of Florence Perrotte by her first marriage. The age given is more compatible with that supposition.

It is also possible that the _Bullock_ family of Grand Isle

Co., Vt. was in fact a _Bourgeois_ family. See the

following baptism, which would seem to be that of a BULLOCK

child:

George Bourgeois, bap. 5 June 1860/63, St. Rose de Lima, South Hero, Vt., of Samuel Bourgeois and Mathilde Perrot. Godparents Gedeon Dubois and Adele Perrot.

For further BULLOCK descendents, see them listed in the maternal line under Paro, Parot.
