This record is also in the Langois Marriage Records on page 1695.

As for his marriage to Mary Jane Hafford, I have not found the documentation..but working on it.. He had a large family with her..will send pictures of their grave stones..they are buried at the old ST. Charles Catholic Cemetery..in ST. Francis, Maine.

Mary Hughes, they had one baby and both the mother and child died in child birth, is the story I have always been told..I have not found their grave site. still searching...

Nizaire Augustin and all of his family were Catholic.. Nizaire Augusatin Pelletier also went by the name of Isiah Nizaire Augustin Pelletier

My husband, Clarence Pelletier (1938-1992) and my Father, Lawrence E. Pelletier (1915-2003) were both Catholic and they are both buried at the St. Paul's Congregational Church Cemetery..

My Mom and I belonged to this church and it is right next to our house..
My brother and many of my Grandparents on my Mom's side are buried here..
But this is not uncommon here.. there are more Catholic's buried in this cemetery..
My husband and My Dad both had a Catholic Funeral and then buried here...

Hope this helps...
