Just came in from taking care of the 'rents driveway. It's cold. But, not too bad. Yesterday was crazy. Some people were actually out there driving in the storm. Weirdos, man.
This week I added more of my dad's side to the tree here. I may add all the siblings of my great grandparents. I did find some sad stories on the Legault side, though. I wasn't sure of who belonged to who so I checked the censuses. The Legaults had 11 kids. Maybe a 12th. I'm not sure..
It all started when I finally tracked down Lucie Cadron's year of death and place which is Haverhill. Someone on Familysearch put her death down as 1912. That's why I had it here and other places. It turns out that after Anthony Legault died, she was widowed in the 1910 census. Then she had a marriage with some guy whose name was either Napoleon according to the marriage record or Paul Lahaye. She died in the '30s.
I went with Paul Lahaye on the profile here because he was in the 1920 census married to Lucie (Lucy) I found that a daughter named Blanche from her marriage to Anthony Legault was in the census and living in their house. 1930 Census she had been married to a guy with the last name Yerxa.
The other night my mom told me a little about Blanche from what she remembered growing up. She passed away in the '60s. So it looks like the Legaults had 10 kids. But, there's one kid I am not too sure about.
FS gives me a hint about a Phillip Legault and a marriage that mentions him and his parents. Not sure if it's the right person. His birthday is in 1885. I checked the 1880 census and he isn't there with his parents.
Here's where things take a turn to crazy town. The first census he appears in, he's in the 1900 census as a 15/16 yr old inmate in this place in New York, FAAAAAAR from the family. It says he was born in Mass. I dunno if this is the same guy. The place was apparently called the State Industrial School in Rochester City, Monroe, New York.
He was an inmate there. I dunno if this is the guy I am looking for. But he next shows up getting married in Haverhill and that's the last of it.
I asked one of my mom's cousins if she knows anything because my mom doesn't. This is just wild. Probably a little frustrating. I dunno if this Phil guy is one of the Legault kids.
As it is, these are Anthony and Lucie's kids as per the censuses and my mom's recollection since they were quite old when my mom was a kid.
Emma (1888-1896)<-This story is very sad. She died when she was like 7 from a disease that's curable today.
Mary Rose (1890-
Henrietta Frances (1892-1973) My great grand
Oliver (1901-) Anthony died not long after Oliver was born. That's also very sad.
This is all compiled from censuses since the girls would be in and out of the houses after getting married. I thought Blanche was missing in the 1920 Census. I was wondering about that. But, she was in the census with her mom's second husband. By 1930 she was with the other guy. Oliver had grown up by that point. I found almost everyone's birth records.
My mom has a TON of cousins. Some cousins she doesn't even know. I talk to a couple of them on a regular basis via Facebook. You need a flowchart to get them all. Or a family tree. My grandfather is one of five. My grandmother is one of six kids. The Legaults are on her side and the cousins I talk to are the daughters of her siblings. In one case a granddaughter. Her name's Lisa.
She agrees. The Felker and Hamel clans need name tags and flowcharts. I guess that's where I come in. =D I asked her to ask her mom about the twisty turny kid. See if there's anything to to that. Because hey why not have 12 kids, right?
What's even weirder is that the birth certs and other documents keep spelling her maiden name as: Cadran, Cadron, Cadrin, Cadrant etc. So confusing. But, hey. One mystery about her solved at least. =D
Then we come to this lady:
I completed a merge with her last night and I went to see if I could find sources. Nope. None to be found. We know she existed as she's mentioned in her husband's umm....criminal record. Maybe she didn't want to be found after her husband did those things. Just be like "I don't want any part of this guy!" Wouldn't blame her.
Hope everything is good. Am working on writing and comic stuff. Starting a new story line in space. Eddie might like this one. =)
