|I am interested in tracing the Gauthiers of Dachambault. Pierre Gauthier emigrated from France and married Marguerite Arcand in Dechambault. His father's name was Charles.|
My granfather ,Guillaume, was born in Dechambault on June 22, 1854.He married Alvina Godin on January 19, 1874. They had three daughters - Rossana, Malvina and Anne-Bernadette.
I don't know what happened to Alvina. Guillaume left Quebec around 1880 and married Ellen Tracy Dunn in Spencer MA on September 5, 1885. My father Wiliam Joseph was born there in 1893. I was born in Boston on July 9, 1931.
WE HAD NO IDEA THAT MY GRANDFATHER WAS EVER MARRIED BEFORE COMING TO THIS COUNTRY. I would like to know what happened to Alvina and the girls.I know two of them married.
I plan to visit Dechambault in the summer of 2003.
