Re: Calixte Nadeau B:1871, East Coast
since this wonderful information you gave us in August, we have been working hard to trace things through. Going on a vaque memory of an older family member, we moved our search over to Holyoke, Mass, where we found in the 1920 census.
Claside Durand; Head; 28;b:Can;immigrated 1915
Florida Durand; Wife;28;b:Can;immigrated 1915
Irene;daughter;3 9/12;b:Mass (making her b:1916)
Rene:son: 2 4/12 b:Mass (making him b:1917)
So now we're thinking maybe the first two children died somehow. With the second one being born 1914 and immigration listed as 1915, there is only a slight possibilty that it happened in the Black Lake area, but I was wondering if your book also shows deaths and perhaps you wouldn't mind just checking this theory out.
Or if you might think of something else we can try. I'm going to also try looking for the deaths of the two children in Holyoke. Maybe they got sick on the move?
Any thoughts on this?
