FRANCOIS (FRANCIS) XAVIER AMANS (L ALLEMAN)
AND
ANGELE (ANGELINE) MORIN (MOREAU)

   My great great grandfather, Francois Xavier Amans, was born in 1797 according to his death record. I think he was born in Quebec Canada. He was married to Angele Morin about 1835 in Quebec. I have not found a marriage record for Francois and Angele. It appears from various records of their children that the couple lived in Princeville as well as Tingwick, as there are marriage and birth records for their children in both places. On the 1861 Canadian census of Tingwick, Francois was listed as being a cultivator or a farmer with 100 acres of land; 15 acres under cultivation, 12 acres in crops, 3 acres in pasture, 85 acres in wood or wild. This was at a cash value of $400.00. It seems that he must have been a very prosperous farmer in that day.

   Francois died in Tingwick, Arthabaska, Quebec, Canada on 30 June 1864 at age 67, just 45 days after the death of his wife. He was buried next to her in the St. Patrice Cemetery on 2 July 1864.

   His wife, Angele Morin, was born in 1814 according to her death record. She was married near the age of 21 (about 1835) and died in Tingwick, Arthabaska, Quebec, Canada on 16 May 1864, at the age of 50. She was buried in the St. Patrice Cemetery on 18 May 1864.    In the 29 or 30 years that Francois and Angele were married they had eleven children, with 20 years between the oldest and the youngest in the family.

    These children were:
Charles -------------- Born 10 Mar 1837, (see Charles' story for possible alternate dates.)
Marie Delima ------ Possibly born about 1838
Isabelle -------------- Possibly born about 1840
Andrew -------------- Born 26 Mar 1842
Henrietta ------------ Born 1845, according to her death record.
Emma ---------------- Possibly born during this gap between children but unknown.
George -------------- Born 31 Dec 1848
Henry ----------------- Born 1851, according to his death record.
Antoine -------------- Born 9 Feb 1853
Mary ------------------ Born 19 Apr 1855
Marie Adelaide --- Born 11 Mar 1857
