Referring to Louis Lamoureux (PRDH #125493), why is the death in Montreal of Jean Baptiste Lamoureux attached to Louis? I looked at the parish death record and it doesn't refer to his wife or any other person I can associate with Louis. Just wondering why this death record is attributed to Louis. Thanks.
Bonjour,

- No death record for this Louis Lamoureux
- No candidate for a Jean Baptiste Lamoureux dying at that age at that date
- Louis has a son Jean Baptiste still alive at that date; I have seen many cases where an aged person was mistakingly named with the name of his son
- Louis had persistent ties with Montreal

No certainty in this match, but reasonable hypothesis...

Thank you. I agree that your hypothesis is reasonable.
