B.59 [baptism 59]
On the thirteenth of May, one thousand eight hundred fifty-four, by us, the undersigned priest, was baptized François Céade, born yesterday of the legitimate marriage of François Gamache, farmer, and of Marguerite Duteau of this parish. The Godfather was François Fradette, and the Godmother was Anastasie Mailloux, who, as well as the father, did not know how to sign.

The Godmother of the child was Anastasie Mailloux. From the Marriage Record of François Gamache and Marguerite Duteau, I learned that Marguerite’s mother was Anastasia Mailloux. Since women in Québec kept their maiden names, the Godmother of François Céade Gamache may have been his grandmother.
