    Sandra Thorne Borgon (1942) writes:

    Spoke fluent French. Evidently wasn't well after having a number of children, so she went back to be nursed by her mother where she died from her ailment (probably between 1881-1890) . Cesaire was left to raise the children.

    As found by Pat Malon on an Archambault website:

    Cesaire Archambault's marriage card listing his wife and children. It stated that her name was Josephine Oak and that they had 9 children! Also new to me. The 1st two listed were: Cesaire b. 5/12/1862 (Jr.?) & Josephine b. 5/23/1863. I knew they were married in 1861 and was aware of the other children.

    John Thorne writes:

    Interesting you found our Josephine Chine (dit labile) listed as Josephine Oak. The French generally took surnames that represented an object (e.g., LaPorte - the door; LaFramboise - the raspberry; LaChene - the oak). Am not familiar with all of Cesaire and Josephine's "nine" children, but don't doubt for a minute they had that many (or more). The child mortality rate was extremely high then! We've recorded six - Minnie (b.1866), Delphine (b.1871), Alice (b.1876), Helen (b.1879), Robert (b.1880), and George (b.1881). Now you've found/ added Cesaire (b.1862) and Josephine (b.1863). Congrats! Makes sense that the first two would typically be "juniors." Probably died in childbirth, as youngsters, or were farmed out. I did wonder why we only had Minnie (b.1866) recorded in Cesaire and Josephine's (m.1861) first ten years of marriage; then Delphine (b.1871) and another 5 year gap to Alice (b.1876). We can assume there well may have been other children (who didn't survive) during those time gaps. Would you please forward copies of the documents listing the Cesaire Jr. (b.1862) and Josephine Jr. (b.1863) births, and we'll add them to our Archambault web site.
