Children of Marie Eugenie Rivette and Henry Elphege Legleu

Research Notes:

     There has been confusion in this family with two children named Eugenie and one apparent child named Euphemie. At first it was thought that Euphemie and Marie Eugenie were the same person.
     The first Eugenie (Eugenie Zachar) apparently died at age 3 yrs.
     The second Eugenie (Marie Eugenie) married Henri Legleu in 1886 and had children at least through 1894. A death record for a Henri Legleu at age 60 is found in 1891, but this is probably not him: his age doesn't fit (about 30 years off), and at least one source shows he had a child in 1894. Since BRDA doesn't go past 1900 (at this writing), and I haven't found a record of his death to that point, he probably died after that. Need to review census records to verify.
     The child Euphemie is only found in an 1889 marriage record of Euphemie and Aldesse Landry. We have not found any birth or other record for Euphemie. Euphemie and Aldesse are 1st cousins once removed (Aldesse's grandfather is Euphemie's uncle). Because Euphemie married during a period when Eugenie was having Legleu children, she must have been a separate individual.
