This connection is tentative, and only documented here for the sake of gathering information to confirm the link. Confirming that Xavier is the son of Louis and Amelia would provide the maiden name of Amelia.

The case for connecting Xavier to Louis and Amelia as a child is looking pretty good, but I'd like a little more data.

He was born at just the right time to be an early child of a typical young newly-wedded couple, Louis and Amelia. (We don't have a source for the marriage date, but judging by their ages, I would expect them to marry around 1835.)

He immigrated from Canada to Southbridge, Massachusetts, just like, although later than, Louis and Amelia. However, he probably would have been living on his own, or as a married person before his parents moved, so such a disconnect is expected.
