looking for info on wife of Phillippe Gingras, Sarah Lemay

Query by shillios

My Great Grandfather was Phillippe Gingras, son of Martin Gingras and Emelie Mayrand. Phillippe married Sara (Sarah) Lemay. Their son Joseph F. was my grandfather. I am looking for more information on Sara and wondering if anyone might have any.

Her family dates back to Francis LEMAY b:1600 and his wife Marie GASCHET b:1610 they went from Chenehutte, Angers, Maine Et Loire, France to Trois Rivieres, Quebec in the 1850s.

Going down their family line about 5 generations we come to Bernard LEMAY b:18 August 1803 at Lotbiniere, Quebec d: 14 January 1866. He married Anastasie PLEAU ( no nothing about her) on the 8 September 1840 at St. Louis De Lotbiniere, Quebec. The children of this marriage were:-

1.Bernard Lemay 1841 2.Aristobule Lemay 1842
3.Pierre Lemay 1843 1846 4.Marie Zelanire Lemay 1844 1844
5.Elisee Lemay 1845 6.Louis Lemay 1846 1846
7.Michel Lemay 1847 8.Marie Erzeline Lemay 1848 1850
9.Sara Lemay b:1850. married Phillipe Gringas,St Patrice, Magog, Stanstead County, Quebec.
10.Albert Lemay 1851 11.Marie Claire Eudoxie Lemay 1853
12.Victorine Lemay 1854 1931 13.Marie Odille Lemay 18561857 14.Exilia Lemay 1858 1933 15.Angelique Lemay 1861 1944

I'm sure if you visit your library you will find a lot of information on this very old family of Quebec

I did a count Bernard was an 8th generation Quebecois so what does that make you? about 12th generation.

Hi shillios, that makes us cousins! ;-)

My last name Jangro was mutated from Gingras. My paternal line goes back to the Gingras family of Quebec.

Unfortunately, I can't elaborate any more than the amazing info that janilye provided.

But I do have a digitized (scanned, not indexed) version of the Gingras family marriages book. PM me if you're interested.

Please excuse my error no = Know (embarrassed now).
Sara and Phillipe were married on the 7 January 1878. I know nothing about her and Phillipe after that.

The Gringas came from the same region in France. Hilaire GRINGAS 1610-1656 and his wife Francois STLO had 4 children and it was his 2 sons Sabastien 1636-1687 and Charles 1641-1710 who started the GRINGAS families in Quebec.

sorry, they had 6 children but you probably already know that..Good luck with your research, interesting family . Jan

Thank you all so much! Janilye, I really appreciate the information you've provided. If I am counting correctly, I would be an 11th generation Gingras. Phillippe was my Great Grandfather, Joseph F. was my Grandfather and Rouville F. was my father.
Hi Cuz! Great site!!
