My g-g-grandfather was Peter Joseph Mathias, born on May 26, 1864 in Hull, Canada.I am seeking information on his parents and siblings and their families.On his death certificate his parents are listed as Hillaire Mathias (b. Canada) and Philomene Legrand (b. France).Peter died in Springfield, Mass on April 21, 1936, and in his obituary 2 siblings are listed: a brother, Paul Mathias of Hull, Canada, and a sister, Zillie Labie.
Peter married Lillian Dumas (b. 1869 in Burke, NY).They had 5 children, presumably all born in Worcester, MA:
1.Edger F. Mathias, b: January 16, 1894; d: February 1974 in Springfield, MA.He married Yvonne Montmeny (1899-1998)
2.Homer Maurice Mathias, b: May 29, 1896; d: May 09, 1992 in Holyoke, MA.
