Here is a wonderful picture of a group of children sent to me by Anne-Marie St-Jean, granddaughter of François St-Jean and Alphonsine Dufresne . It may be a picture of the children of François St-Jean and Alphonsine Dufresne and then again it may only be a picture of some of their children. If anyone has information on this picture please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Several of the children are known.

Here is who I am guessing are the other children in the picture - this is only a guess - we need confirmation: Left to right: Rémi St-Jean, Louis Philippe Catudal, Adrien Adelard St-Jean, Clement St-Jean, Marie-Ange St-Jean, Aurore Catudal, Emile Catudal, Lorenzo St-Jean
Please note that I am guessing that it is a picture of all of the children born until that time to François St-Jean (1873-1955) and Alphonsine Dufresne (1877-1944). The names as I have entered them are as they appeared on each child's baptism record.. Some of his children were baptized as Catudal, some as St-Jean and two as Catudal St-Jean.
Baptized under the name St-Jean were: Lorenzo, Rémi, Clement, Adrien Adelard and Marie-Angie
Baptized under the name Catudal were: Aurore, Louis Philippe and Emile
François St-Jean and Alphonsine Durfresne had four more children after the time of the above picture.
Roland was born under the name St-Jean
The twins Lucien, Lucienne were born under the name Catudal dit St-Jean
Alma Beatrice Jeannette was born simply under the name Catudal
Most of François and Alphonsine's children who had been baptized with the Catudal name later took and used the St-Jean instead.
