A "Joseph A. Gingras" with a wife "Lottie" and child "Howard" age 4 appear in the Hartford, CT 1910 census.At some point between Howard's 4th birthday and 13th birthday, Lottie took him away from Joseph for some reason and headed west. Lottie changed her son's Howard's last name from Gingras to Gengras on the train ride west. In the 1920 Reno, NV census, "Lottie Gengras," divorced, resided with son Howard, 14 yr old high school student. Howard "Gengras" is my beloved Grandpa who passed in 1998. I would like to know who Joseph A. Gingras' parents were and any children he may have had before or after my grandpa.
A Joseph A. Gingras, divorced, was listed in the CT 1920 census as living in Hartford with elderly parents, Ferdinand & Emma Gingras born Canada-Fr. Unfortunately, the 1910 Joseph A. Gingras is listed in the 1910 census as born Canada, and the 1920 census listed it's Joseph A. Gingras as born in VT, so the match may or may not be correct.
Please let me know if you have any info on my family.
