I found all the family signatures to be an absolute gem to store away in the family tree. This establishes the parents of Eugenie Neveu as the daughter of Jean Baptiste Neveu and Léa Lapointe. The 1911 Census gives us April 1861 as the month and year for his birth and he was 50 years old. Locating the marriage of Jean Baptiste Neveu and Léa Lapointe proved to be a difficult task.
Nosorigines is not helpful with the parents of Jean Baptiste Neveu. Checking ancestry online trees I do not find any help with Jean Baptiste but Philomène Neveu has several trees with a brother Jean Baptiste and Alexandre. Alexandre is clearly at Pointe Gatineau and Adelaide (mother of Alexandre and Philomène) is on the census in 1901 living with Philomène. I am not happy with my decision to place Jean Baptiste in the Jean Baptiste Neveu and Adelaide Piché family of a year ago. I think that I need more information to make this attachment. On the 1891 census Jean Baptiste Neveu (married to Léa Lapointe) is a Grocer a general. It would be good to find Adelaide on this census. On the 1911 census she appears to be living on her own.
I read the 1891 census for Pointe Gatineau and found John Neveu and Adelaide Neveu with their two youngest children living about four units away from Jean Baptiste Neveu and Léa Lapointe and their family. Alexandre and his family were living about 10 units away from John Neveu and Adelaide Neveu. Can one conclude from such information (and they are the only Neveu families at Pointe Gatineau) that Jean Baptiste is a son of Jean Baptiste and Adelaide? It would be so nice to find the marriage. It does seem odd that Jean Baptiste and Léa would marry in 1882 with their first living child in 1885. The burial of the one child in 1882 would tend to make one think they married in 1881 or early 1882. We do know that Jean Baptiste is still living with his parents on the 1881 census in June. Looking for a marriage in the latter part of 1881 might be a good idea and I will do that on my next research day. I will not begin my generation folders for the Neveu family until I am thoroughly convinced that Jean Baptiste Neveu and Adelaide Piché are indeed the parents of Jean Baptiste Neveu married to Léa Lapointe.
