    Notes 
    • The 1845 Marriage Record gives his name as “Octave Valiquet,” but this must be him, since his wife’s name is “Martine Terrien.” His marriage record names him as “fils Majeur V. Albert Valiquet et de Suzanne Charbonneau de la paroisse de Saint Jerome.”

      His son John’s 1919 passport application names him as James O. Valiquette.

      There are three different birth records in the Basilique Notre Dame in Montréal, Québec for a Joseph Octave Valiquet, none of which match his parents. In 1821, Joseph Octave (1) was born to François Valiquet and Veronique Hébert. In 1827, Joseph Octave (2) was born to Pierre Valiquet and Françoise Turiot. In 1828, Joseph Octave (3) was born to, again, François Valiquet and Veronique Hébert, no doubt because (1) had died.

      He is “Villket” on the 1870 Census, which is a key to this family: but, he has no first name there. His full name comes from the 1880 census, where he is “Vilquett.” The name is also “Valiquet.” His family before the 1870 census, however, is a real stumper--help would be appreciated!

      Family history says that he was born in Canada, presumably Quebec. One son’s census, however (George C., in 1910) says that both his parents were born in Vermont. Their son Moses married a woman from Canada, and their daughter Josephine’s husband was French.

      In the 1870 household, he is living with his wife, his daughters Josephine and Emelia, and his younger sons; the older ones must have moved out.

      The 1875 New York State census says that he and his wife (as "Villigut") were born in Canada, but that their daughter Amelia was born in Onondaga County, and that the rest of their children were born in Monroe County.

      In 1890, James Valiquette, Ship’s Carpenter, is living at 204 West Forest Ave. in Buffalo, according to the 1890 city directory.

      There is a Joseph Valiquette buried at the French and German Cemetery: Valiquette, Joseph b: 1847 d: 1912; see here: http:/​/​www​.findagrave​.com/​cgi-bin/​fg​.cgi?page=gr&GRid=74830196 [8]
