Looking for a link between Eugene Giroux and Eudore Cardinal....both born about 1903, both probably in Somerville MA... I know Eudore was born there. They lived next door to each other, and were friends into adulthood.
Eudore was the s/o Gustav and Marie Louise (Trudeau) Cardinal; Eugene was the s/o Hercule and Mary L. Giroux.
I know there is a Giroux back a bit on Eudore's tree....his grandmother on his mother's side was Marie Giroux, who married Joseph Trudeau about 1867 in Napierville (after Marie passed away, Joseph married Malvina Cardinal; they went on to be PM Pierre Trudeau's grandparents).
I have Eudore traced back to Simon and Michelle (Garnier) Cardinal, but I can't get any more on Eugene other than possibly his father Hercule and his (Hercule's) brother Joseph living with their sister and her hubby in Somerville in 1900; I do have Hercule on the 1910 census with his wife Mary and sons Eugene and Albert.
Can anyone show me if there is a family connection between Eudore and Eugene? I'm thinking probably through Marie Giroux's family...a brother or cousin??
