I noticed a Arthur Fulgence Prefontaine married to a Mary-Elphege Paul listed in your message:
"Children of PIERRE* PAUL and MARIE-ROSALIE* VALIN are: i.MARY-ELPHEGE*7 PAUL, b. 10 May 1870,Northampton, Hampshire Co., Mass.160; d. 03 April 1962, Greenfield, Franklin Co., Mass.161; m. (1) ARTHUR JOSEPH* STRAHAN, 07 September 1891, St. Anne's Church, Turners Falls, Montague, Mass.162; b. 17 April 1870, Turners Falls, Montague, Franklin Co., Mass.162; d. 17 January 1892, Turners Falls, Montague, Franklin Co., Mass.162; m. (2) ARTHUR FULGENCE PREFONTAINE, 29 December 1923, Greenfield, Franklin Co., Mass.163; b. Abt. 1883; d. 1941."
I came across your message while trying to search for the descendants of the brother of my g-g-grandfather.The family had left Upton, Quebec around 1867 and went thru Westbrook, ME (found descendants of a sister there) before settling in Greenfield, MA.After a number of years, most of the family moved to southern Manitoba, however one of the sons returned to Greenfield, MA to finish his medical studies.I am told that he practiced medecin there untilhis death in 1905.I have no information whether he ever married and had a family, but he may have.
His name was Louis-Aurele Prefontaine, but he may have been known simply as Aurele Prefontaine.He was born around 1867 in St-Ephrem-d'Upton, QC to Firmin Prefontaine & Mathilde Desautels.I am wondering if he might be a grandpfather of Arthur Fulgence Prefontaine.Doo you have any additional info on either of these two individuals that might connect the two names?
