Questions and answers

My name is Robert Messier, I live in San Antonio, Texas. I am working on my family history and I am looking for information regarding the Marguerite Vigeant (born  abt. 1822), she was the wife of Joseph Onésime Messier (1812-1870). I have found their marriage documents but the writing is not clear as who her parents were.  I was wondering if you had more information on this.


Best regards

Robert Messier
