Looking for information on the family of Louis Normand, born Nov. 1842 in L'Islet (county? parish? town?), Quebec. I have information on his family/descendants after he moved to Brunswick, ME (probably around 1870); but I have almost no information about his parents or ancestors in Quebec.
It appears that his father's name may also have been Louis Normand, probably born bet. 1797-1798 in/near L'Islet, Quebec. His mother's first name was Veronique (she appears in his household in the 1880 US Census in Brunswick, ME) and she was probably born abt 1799. Also in the household is Louis' sister, Artemise Normand, b. abt. 1840 in Quebec. This is all I have on Louis' ancestry. :-(
While still in Quebec, Louis married Julie Gamache, probably in the mid 1860s. They had the following children:
Louis F. Normand, b. March 1866 in Quebec; died after 1930, probably in Maine. Pierre Normand, b. abt 1871 in Brunswick, ME; died sometime bet. the 1880 Census and 1909. Charles Normand, b. abt 1872 in Brunswick; died sometime bet. the 1880 Census and 1909. Joseph Normand, b. abt 1873 in Brunswick; died sometime bet. the 1880 Census and 1909. Marie Alphonsine Normand, b. April 1874 in Brunswick; married Adelard Casavant in Brunswick; died in 1906. John Normand, b. Nov. 1878 in Brunswick; married a girl named Grace, had at least one son, and was in Chicago in 1930. Dianna (aka Jennie) Normand, b. Jan. 1880 in Brunswick; married Henry Provost; died after 1910. I would like to also find more information on her, as they seem to have had 2 sons. Harry David Normand, b. Dec 1883 in Brunswick; married a girl named Hattie; d. 1924 in Brunswick.
Louis Normand died in October 1909 in Brunswick. I have a copy of a very nice obit for him from The Brunswick Record, saying that he was a member of the Brunswick Police Dept for 33 years.
Does anyone have information on the Quebec family/ancestry of Louis Normand, or more info on any of his descendants?
