      Hi Jennifer:

      I received your letter this afternoon regarding your search for a divorce record between Abram/Abraham and Janet/Jennie Rosa. Unfortunately after searching our index book which covers the years 1830-1900 I was not able to find anything for these names here in Berrien County.

    Family 1 CHRITIEN, Henry,   b. Lower Canada Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Married 7 Nov 1871  Oconto, Oconto County, Wisconsin Find all individuals with events at this location  [6
    Notes 
    • Carrie was married to a Henry Chritien before she married John P. Cain. There is a marriage certificate for them in 1871 at the Oconto Register of Deeds. And the parents fit for Carrie. No record of her marriage to John has been found. Not in church records or pre-1907 indexes or Oconto marriage records. They most likely would have been married about 1874-75 as Elizabeth was born in Nov. 1875.

      First marriage Nov. 7, 1871:
      Husband: Henry Chritien
      Husband’s parents: Francois Chritien and Caroline Chritien
      Occupation: Day laborer
      Residence: City of Oconto
      Birthplace: Lower Canada
      Wife: Carrie A. Rosa
      Wife’s parents: Abram Rosa and Jenny Lavelly
      Witnesses: Joseph Jarvis and Mary Pacquain (Pocquain) [6]
