Thanks Reggie, thats a start. I do have some additions and omissions to post. My mother was Parmelia Paquin and a daughter of Athanase and Caroline Paquin. I have a list of about 11 children and I know there were some that died at birth or at a very young age. Also Grandmother Caroline remarried after my grandfather died. Her second husband was Alfred Quirette (don't know if I spelled that correctly). Anyway,a point of interest is that Alfred was her son in law,and when her daughter also died(either Celestine or Valentine)my grandmother married Alfred. He is the only grandfather I knew on the maternal side. Are we related??
