    Notes 
    • The Joanis families were living on ordnance land at Dow's Lake in Bytown in 1847 (Bruce Elliott).
      François was alive in 1851 at the time of the census. But the marriage record of his daughter Marie on 19 November 1852 shows that he was deceased. A review of Notre Dame Cathedral records for the intervening period has surfaced a possibility of his death on 29 January 1852. There is a high probability that the record of the death of Francis "Lapacka" at age 57 on that date is for François. The age fits and the spelling phonetically by an English priest at least resembles Depocas.
