(G) Henry Fontaine/Fountaine, Quebec 1896 and Maine 1919
We always thought that my grandfather's name was Henry Fontaine (without a "u"), but a memorial card produced after his death called him G. Henry Fountaine (with a "u").According to that card he was born in St. Adolphe, Quebec on July 13, 1896 and died in Lewiston, Maine on August 4, 1966.
He married my grandmother, Imelda (various spellings) Cailler in Lewiston on or about June 2, 1919.
I have a four-generation photograph from 1946 showing my brother, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.The annotation on that photograph says that my great-grandfather was named Francois and was born in 1868.
I have found many Fontaines/Fountaines named Henry or Francois but none with the right dates.
My father told me once that he thought that, if we looked far back enough, we were English.
Can anyone shed any light on this family?Thanks a bunch.
