My second great-grandmother, Léda Chabot, was born on June 6, 1861 to Joseph Chabot and Louise Labrie. I haven't been able to find her baptism record yet, so my best guess as to Léda's birthplace is Saint-Lazare, Bellechasse, Québec, which is where she was living with her family in 1881. She married my second great-grandfather, Célestin Bouffard, on July 13, 1881 in Saint-Lazare. Together they had about 10 children between 1882 and 1901, who were born in Saint-Lazare at first and then later in Sainte-Hénédine, Dorchester, Québec. At least one child, Catherine Alexandrine Bouffard, died at the age of only 15 months in 1888. Léda's husband passed away in 1931, at the age of 84. Léda passed away on October 14, 1956 in Québec.
