Re: Pierre/Elzear Boivin, WA state.
I seen a post from some time ago in this forum that mentioned a 'Gauthier'. It seemed familiar so I went and grabbed the little obituary of Pierre Boivin, and sure enough, it says:
A La Douce Memoire De
Capitaine Pierre Boivin
epoux de feue Adeline Gauthier,
decede a Bienville de Levis, le
13 septembre 1921 a l`age de
79 ans et 8 mois.
I dont speak any french, but I'm assuming it's saying he was married to a woman named Adeline Gauthier, and the Sept 13th date is his date of death, and that he was 79 years, 8 months old? I dont know where "Bienville de Levis" is, or it's relation to him. Place of birth? Death?
The rest of it says;
Je meurs, mon pelerinage est fini, je vous en supplie, ne m`oubliez jamais; restez unis entre vous, demeurez inebranlables dans la foi; bientot nous nous reunirons dans l`eternite.
Souvenez-vous de moi, vous qui futes mes parents et mes a mis, mais surtout priez pour moi aux pieds des saints autels.
Misericordieux Jesus, donnezlui le repos eternel. (7ans, 7 quar.)
Adieu! Au revior Au ciel!
Can anyone give me a translation of that by chance? Or does anyone know more about this Pierre Boivin?
