Elizabeth __ Pitre was born in 1878.[1]


She married Henry Alexander "Harry Honore" Pitre.


She died at the age of 85-86, and was buried in the Sainte Anne Cemetery in Tecumseh, Essex county, Ontario, Canada.[1]

Research Note

  • I think Elizabeth is actually his sister. Elizabeth Pitre, Harry's sister, never married and was the informant on his death cert.
  • Harry did not fill in Border Crossing Manifest card. That is obvious by the difference in the writing and the signature. If Harry told the officer that his contact was Elizabeth Pitre, perhaps it was only assumed that she was a wife instead of sister.

I can't find evidence that Harry Pitre was married.

1/15/2021 - I checked what the above researcher wrote, only looking at more sites and searching for Alexander Pitre and Alexander Peets. What I found was a voter's list citing Mr. Henry Pitre and Mrs. Henry Pitre: Library and Archives Canada; Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; Voters Lists, Federal Elections, 1935-1980, Description; Year: 1940, Canada, Voters Lists, 1935-1980 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2012. Original data: Voters Lists, Federal Elections, 1935–1980. R1003-6-3-E (RG113-B). Library and Archives Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. But this profile shows Henry Pitre deceased by 1940. More research will need to be done.Fetterly-28 06:52, 16 January 2021 (UTC).

1/15/2021 - I did further searching, and found the attached border crossing record. Elizabeth and her husband Henry Pitre crossed into the USA on 22 May 1935. They were visiting Henry's sister Agnes/Aggie. The record does not give Elizabeth's surname.Fetterly-28 07:13, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
