Interesting to see Gauthier/Chartrand and Lavallee together.Let me mix things up a bit by adding Lirette/Lorette to the mix.I have all these names in my line.Let's see if I can explain briefly:
Emmanuel - Venant LIRETTE m. Genevieve GILBERT DIT COMPTOIS Father: Pierre GILBERTMother: Genevieve
Prosper LIRETTE1820 -b: February 16, 1820 in St. Cuthbert, Berthier, Canada m.Adelaide COURCHESNE 1821 -b: 1821 in Canada Father: Antoine COURCHESNE Mother: Marguerite BELGARDE (These are my Great, Great Grandparents)
Prosper had a brother named Francois Xavier LIRETTE.Francois married Helene LAVALLEE.
Prosper and Adelaide had a son named Felix who married Alexandrina Celia GAUTHIER. (The last name change to LORETTE with their children.)
Felix and Alexandrina had 8 living children, four boys and four girls.I have photos of this whole family.The girls in one, the boys in one and the mother and father seperately.Childrens pictures date about 1940 and parents 1901.I also have Felix and Alexandrinas marrige certificate and his birth and death certificates.
One of their daughters, Margaret Marie Diana LORETTE married Ernest Ignace CHARTRAND.
Now that I've explained, do I have some cousins out there? PPhillips1963@msn.com
