Sorry if this is a repeat. I just prepared a message to you but don't know if it was sent.
My wife's great grandfather was named Everste Chouinard (1877-1974). He was born in New brunswick but spent much of his life in the Chicago area. He married Elzabeth Mailloux in 1900, They had six children. The fifth was named George. He was born on September 16, 1908.
Sounds like this might be the preson you are looking for. If so, please let me know. I have just begun research on my wife's family and would be glad to share with you what I know and would also like to find out information on the family from other Chouinard relatives.
