This message is three years after your posting so I don't know it you will get it. I think the Thomas LeDuc you are searching for is my great-great grandfather. He was born in Ontario (I have 1835 but close enough) and I lose track of him then until he shows up here in B.C. as a teacher first in Cache Creek and then in Armstrong. On Aug.11,1879, he married Rosanna Schubert and they went on to have five children:Thomas J., Charles, Fredrick, Augustus and Catherine. Thomas Sr. was considerably older than Rose and they divorced approx. 20 years later I am not entirely sure of the date. Thomas Sr. continued to live around the Armstrong area as a farmer and passed away at Otter Lake onNov.21,1912. My family history is really caught up in the Schubert line as Catherine Schubert was an Overlander and her daughter Rose (Thomas' wife) was the first white child born in the interior of B.C. (Kamloops 1862) and there is a good deal of historic material about this . I am very interested in learning about the LeDuc line and my info says Thomas was born in 1835 in Simcoe county, Tiny Township but that is as far back as I can determine about him as there are so many LeDuc's in Ontario and Quebec and it is abit daunting to determine who is related to who. I have only started my research and live outside Kamloops, B.C. so any infor mation that you have concerning his parents would be appreciated (also siblings),etc. Websites to try are ancestry.com-1911 census of Canada, B.C. Archives ,etc. There is not alot about him but he spent most of his life in the Yale-Cariboo district of B.C. Sub-district is Okanagan and sub-district #39. If I think of anything else and can see that you are getting this info, I will post it. Hope this helps not too late.
