Marie Helene (Mary Ellen) Belleperche was my great great grandmother, my father’s father’s mother’s mother. ¬†She was born Feb 4, 1882 in Tecumseh, or Sandwich East Township, Essex County, Ontario. Her name, as well as her father’s (Honore is his official name) have been anglicized in this record, which was not uncommon to do.

Her Ontario Birth Registration record was found on Ancestry.com, in their collection “Ontario, Canada, Births 1869-1913”.
