Looking for info on my ancestors (Prosper D. Garcin and wife Elizabeth Hooper) from Lamaline, Newfoundland and maybe moved to Rose Blanche in the mid 1800s.

Hello,
For you to consider...
Do you have or do you know someone with a membership to Ancestry.ca. There are two Garcin family trees that have the info you are looking for. Also notations such as Prosper's birth place in France and the fact that Prosper and Elizabeth met in St. Pierre and married in Lamaline.
If you cannot get to these Garcin family trees, let me know and I will post the info.

Jim,
Here are names and dates from a Garcin family tree. Not all events have a source document.
Prosper Dominick Garcin-born 1819 in St. Malo, Il-et-Vilaine, Bretagne, France (parents unknown)
- died 1864 in La Poile, Newfoundland
*deserted from the French Navy near Lamaline, Little Bay, Newfoundland*
He met Elizabeth Hooper in St. Pierre and married her in Lamaline, Newfoundland on Dec. 18, 1839

Elizabeth Hooper - born June 17, 1824 in Lamaline, NFLD to parents William and Bridget Hooper. She and her brothers John and Thomas were baptized in March of 1827 in the Methodist parish in Grand Banks. Here is the link to that document.
