Parents of Julien LeBlanc
In October 2015, I visted Nashua, New Hampshire, and was able to ascertain that the Pierre Leblanc noted as Julien's brother was in fact the same as the one recorded as a son of an elder Julien Leblanc and his wife, Genevieve Kemeneur dit Laflamme. However, I still had been unable to discover in which city their son Julien was born. Because of the above-mentioned information related to the photo of Julien brother Pierre living in Nashua, NH, and Tom White's iformation about that Julien's son also named Julien being married in Illinois, there was strong evidence to conclude that our Julien's father was this Julien Leblanc, Sr., and that Julien's mother was Genevieve Kemineur dit Laflamme, but I had found no baptism record to firmly substantiate this.Then, in Novemeber 2015, Olivette Collins, also a decsendant of the elder Julien Leblanc, corresponded with me, and was able to provide information about Julien's (the son) birthplace in L'Acadie, Quebec. Julien was baptized there at Sainte-Marguerite de Blairfindie, on 16 Aug 1835, and the parents listed were, as expected, Julien and Genevieve. Julien birthdate was also given as 15 August, matching our family's information.
This Julien Leblanc, Sr. was also the second cousin of our Jean-Baptiste Hébert (Sophie Richard's husband). Julien, Sr. and Jean Baptiste Hebert were both the great grandsons of Pierre Gamache and Marie-Genevieve Belanger. Julien through Pierre's son Aubin, and Jean Baptiste through Pierre's son Lazare. Julien Leblanc Jr. and Marie-Josephine Hebert would have been 3rd cousins. Sophie's mother, Cecile Quemeneur dit LAFLAMME was the great granddaughter of François Quemeneur and Marie-Madeleine Chamberlain. Marie Genevieve Kemineur dit LAFLAMME was the great, great, great grandaughter of Francois and Marie-Madeleine...i.e., Cecile and Marie-Genevieve were second cousins, twice-removed. Sophie Richard was also a descendant of the aforementioned Pierre Gamache's sister Elisabeth Gamache, who married Sophie's great grandfather, Pierre Richard.
According to family records, Julien was born 15 Aug 1836 in Canada, and died 28 August 1904 , in Aurora, Kansas, but the birthyear was estimated from his age on censuses. His baptism record indicates 1835.
