Simon Martin born about 1827

#52
***Michael John Stewart's 3rd great grandfather***

Simon Martin was born about 1827 in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Simon Martin was the son of Simon Martin and Julie Doiron.

Simon Martin married Marguerite Gallant in 1844 in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

By 1861 Simon Martin and his wife and children are at Bonaventure, Quebec.

In the 1871 Census, Simon Martin and his wife and children are at Matapedia, Bonaventure, Quebec.

His daughter, Floride Martin, was buried in St-Alexis-de-Matapedia in 1871.

His son, Laurent Martin, married Sophie Pitre in 1873 at St-Alexis-de-Matapedia.

Edesse Martin, his 14 year old daughter, died and was buried at St-Alexis-de-Matapedia in 1875 so they were likely still in the area at that time.

At the time of the 1881 census, however, they are listed in Addington, Restigouche, New Brunswick, Canada.

At the time of the 1891 and 1901 census, they are living in Hardwicke, Northumberland, New Brunswick, Canada.

The children of Simon Martin and Marguerite Gallant include:

Sophie Martin

Armoline Martin

Joseph Martin

Laurent Martin

Floride Martin

Pierre Martin

Gertrude Martin

Judith Martin

John Martin

Edesse Martin

Francois Xaviier Martin

Special Note: There is another Simeon Martin who also married a Marguerite Gallant in PEI.  This other couple also went to St-Alexis-de-Matapedia.  This other couple was a bit older, and had several children.
