  • Notes 
    • - According to Genealogical Memoir of the Newcomb Family by John Bearse Newcomb, 1874, prior to 1840 Simon and Matilde resided in Montreal, Grand Brule, Ottawa and Prescott; they removed to Ogdensburgh and in 1846 to Morristown, where they have since resided (as of 1874.) Mr. Marceau is an engineer.

      - 1860 U.S. census: At Morristown, NY are Simon Marceau, 39; Matilda, 38; and children Simon, 18; and Caroline, 15 (all preceeding b. Canada) and, Elizabeth, 12; Matilda, 10; and Henrietta, 6, all b. NY., which verifies they relocated there as per above about 1846.

      - 1870 U.S. census (listed under Mersaw) is Simon, 52; Matilda, 47; Henrietta, 5 mos., and Napoleon, 9.

      - 1880: Simon (listed undere Mersaw) is 64 at Morristown with Matilda, 58.

      - Sept. 15, 1891: An old man named Simon Marceau of Morristown was found dead in bed yesterday morning. He was in his usual health on retiring on Saturday night. As he did not appear at breakfast, his son thought he would go up to his room to see what was the matter, when to his horror he discovered he was dead. Heart disease is supposed to have been the cause. His remains were brought to Ogdensburg for burial and his funeral took place at 9 a.m. from the residence of George Morley, New York Avenue.
