  • Notes 
    • - Joseph Ricard and Rose Fauber were living in Ormstown, Quebec, Parish of St. Malachie d'Ormstown, when they married in 1842. Ormstown is located about midway between Huntingdon to the west, and Saint Chrysostome to the east, about 20 miles apart, and about 9 miles to the New York State line. They lived there and had their children there until about 1867 when they moved south about 14 miles to Burke, NY, near Malone. Daughter Julienne was born in Quebec in 1865 and the family shows up at Burke in 1870.

      - Sept. 7, 1795, Chambly (St-Joseph) baptize Joseph, of the marriage of Pierre Ignace Dumas and Magdelaine Poupart. The godfather is Joseph Dumas. Note: Some sites claim Joseph was orn Sept. 4, 1807, in Contrecoeur but offer no proof. Joseph was baptized as per above when his father was 50 and mother 36. His six siblings were born from 1779 to 1788 and Joseph, the last child, was born seven years later in 1795 and not 19 years later.

      - St Chrysotome: 1842, Nov. 14, marry Joseph Dumas of Ormstown, major son of the late Pierre Dumas and Magdelaine Poupart, and Rose Fauber of Ormstown, major daughter of Pierre Fauber and Marguerite Laberge. When they were married, Joseph was 47 and Rose, 19. I have found no records indicating a previous marriage.

      - 1861 Canadian census: At Huntingdon, Quebec, is Joseph Dumas with his wife's name as Susan, rather than Rosalee. There is no question this is Joseph and Rosalee because they were in 1861; because of the unusually large age difference between husband and wife, and that most of the children match in name and age though first names are different for several, in part due to nicknames. Following is the census as listed and what we know of the family in parenthesis: Joseph Dumas, 56 (66;) Susan Dumas, 34 (Rosalee, 39;) and children Joseph 19, (18;) what looks like Moses, 17, (Moyse, 17;) Rosa, 15 (Rosalie, 14;) Susan, 12 (Francoise, 13 - we know that Francoise was baptized with that name yet was called Susan throughout her life;) Alexander, 10 (Delaide, 11;) and Henry, 8. The census notes the deaths of Delaide and Henry the previous year. We also know the couple had a daughter Marie who would be 14 in 1861 but she is not shown in the census.

      - It would appear that Joseph moved his family from Huntingdon, Quebec, directly south about 14 miles to Burke, NY, near Malone, about 1865, since we know daughter Julienne was born in July of 1864 at Ormstown.

      - 1870 U.S. census: Joseph and Rosalee Dumas first show up in New York at Burke, in the U.S. census of 1870: Joseph age 60, his wife Rosey, 30; Moyse (Moses,) 22; his wife Mary, 16, and daughter Margaret, 7 mos. Also are other children of Joseph and Rosalee, including Mary 15; Margaret, 9; Julia, 8; and Ann, 7. All were born in Canada.

      - Feb. 13, 1878: Notice in the Malone Palladium of default by Joseph Dumas on property in the Town of Burke, Franklin County, of a mortgage executed by Joseph Dumas Oct. 4, 1876, to Elvira Hare of Burke, and that the property will be sold at public auction. The amount owed is $232: all that tract of land situate in the Town of Burke, being part of a grant, No. 7, old military trace, commencing in the highway in the north and south road, past the dwelling house of John Flyn, containing four acres.

      - 1900 U.S. census: Residing at Malone, NY with daughter Rose and family, Joseph is listed at 100 years old, when he actually is 104.

      - 1901 Canadian census: Residing at Huntingdon, Quebec, with his daughter Julie and her family, Joseph is listed as being 101 years old, born in 1800. In fact, Joseph was 105, having been born in September of 1795 with the census being taken April 2-3, 1901.

      - Malone Palladium, Thursday, Sept. 10, 1903: Joseph Dumas, formerly a resident of this town but who had lived in Huntingdon, Quebec for the past two years, died in that village on Saturday (Sept. 5, 1903) at the ripe old age of 106 years. Mr. Dumas was the father-in-law of Peter Brayton of Malone, with whom he had made his home for a number of years. Without doubt, Mr. Dumas was the oldest resident in this section of the country. (Actually, Joseph Dumas died two days short of his 108th birthday.)

      - From Doug Barton's web site: http://d21c.com/OU812/emaillinks.html: is a picture of Joseph Dumas: "The original now belongs to my son, Matt. On the back it says: "Joseph Dumas of Huntingdon, Quebec, who lived to be 106 years old. Picture acquired (by Leonard Dumas) from Buddy Flynn in 1971." Now it looks like Mose Dumas gave it to his daughter, Laura Dumas Crippen, who in turn gave it to her daughter, Carolyne "Buddy" Flynn, who is Anne Phillips' mother. I don't believe there is a way to absolutely authenticate this photo. I'm willing to accept it on faith, and label it "believed to be Joseph Dumas, father of Mose Dumas."

      - St Patrick's in Chateaugay NY has marraige of Maria Dumas, daughter of Joseph and Rosalia Fontaine Dumas, on Sept 11, 1870 to Elie Ricard; witnesses listed Maria Ricard and Rosa Fontaine. This Rosalia Fontaine may be Joseph's second wife, Rose Mason.
