From what I was told our family tree dates back to France in 1768. The name was D,LAPORTE at that time and was changed to Laporte after the family arrived in Canada. My Dad was born in East Angess or something like that. My Mom came from the River of the Loo or something like that. My grandfather was Joseph Dussault and his wife's name is Marie both from Canada. My dad had four brothers (Amedee,Hector,Nelson, and one drowned I do not recall his name. My Mom had four sisters (Louise,Bertha,Yevone,Clara). They also were all born in Canada.
I was born in Biddeford,Maine where Mom and Dad moved. He worked for the Biddeford & Saco Water Company for 40 years. Mom worked in a Mill.
