Le chercheur nomade - The Nomadic Researcher

Habitants de la grande rivière

Les registres de la paroisse Nativité de Notre-Dame de Bécancour pour le 6 décembre 1769 font état de l'acte de baptême suivant :

«Bapt. de Jos. Leduc

Le six Décembre 1769 a été baptisé Joseph né d'hier au soir à six heures fils de Jean Baptiste Leduc et de Marie Houle ses père et mère habitants de la grande rivière. Le parrain a été Joseph Desnoyers et la marraine Charlotte Levasseur. Le parrain a signé.
/signé/ Joseph Desnoyers P. Nicolas Couturier».

Les parents de l'enfant résident vraisemblablement le long de la rivière Bécancour et non du fleuve Saint-Laurent. Noter que l'année est écrite en chiffres dans l'acte et non en toutes lettres comme l'exige le Rituel et la réglementation.

Le chercheur nomade - The Nomadic Researcher

Trouvé dans le pied de la Côte à Coton

Les registres de la paroisse Notre-Dame de Québec pour le 2 mai 1863 font état de l'acte de baptême suivant :

«B. 75 Mathias, inconnu

Le deux mai mil huit cent soixante et trois, nous prêtre, vicaire, soussigné, avons baptisé Mathias, trouvé dans le pied de la Côte à Cotton et paraissant être né depuis trois semaines. Marraine, Louise Houle, qui n'a su signer.
N.M. Huot ptre».

Avec les rares informations contenues dans cet acte, il sera difficile d'identifier correctement cet enfant, une situation fréquente dans le cas d'enfants abandonnés. Noter l'absence de parrain.

Selon Pierre-Georges Roy, la côte à Coton à Québec disparue aujourd'hui menait de la rue Saint-Vallier à la rue des Glacis à la hauteur de l'actuel escalier des Glacis; Barthélémi Coton y avait établi une petite fabrique de tuiles au haut de cette côte.

The DIONNE Quintuplets (1934)
The DIONNE Quints were born in Corbeil, ON in 1934-05-28. The first-known quintuplets to have lived beyond childhood, the DIONNE girls did not have a normal life in that they were exposed to the public during their childhood on a daily basis. Living in a private hospital built for them, they were not allowed much contact with their parents; hence, familial bonds were never experienced and each had emotional and financial difficulties throughout their life. In November 2007, two of the quints, Annette and Cécile, were still living together in Mont-St-Bruno, QC.
Oliva DIONNE & his wife,.Elzire LEGROS, had 6 children before the birth of the Quints: Ernest, Marie-Rose, Thérèse, Daniel, Léo & Pauline, who was born in 1933. After the birth of the Quint, the couple had 3 sons: Oliva, Victor & Claude.
Several books were written about the Quints, including an autobiography at the hands of ANNETTE & CÉCILE. These may easily be found in the Internet.
ANNETTE married Germain ALLARD but they eventually divorced.
CÉCILE married Philippe LANGLOIS and the couple also divorced.
ÉMÉLIE entered a convent where she had a series of seizures. One day, alone in the Infirmary in St-Agathe-des-Mnts, QC, she had a seizure, which caused her to turn over in her bed, face down on the pillow. She thus died from suffocation on 1954-08-06.
MARIE married Florian HOULE (Herman+Rose Alba ROCH) in Montréal, QC on 1958-08-11. The couple divorced. MARIE died in Montréal, QC on 1970-02-24.
YVONNE was a librarian. She died in Longueuil, QC on 2001-06-23.

Raoul (aka Ralph) M. Bessette represents the 8th Generation of the Jean (dit Brisetout) Bessette lineage. He was born August 4, 1900 in Springfield Mass. (As a matter of general interest, this is the same day as the British Queen mother was born. England recently observed her 101st birthday.) He was educated through the 6th grade when he left to join the work force which was not unusual during that era. With the US entry into World War1 he enlisted on his 18th birthday and was posted with the 13th Cavalry at Ft. Clark, Texas.
Following his honorable discharge in 1919 he returned to Mass., served in the National Guard and returned to active duty in 1925 receiving his final discharge in 1928. He met Jeanne Simone Houle around 1930 and they were married November 21, 1932 in Chicopee, Ma.
Simone was born of a large French Canadien family (11 surviving siblings) to Onesime and Eliana (Jutras) on January 7, 1907 at St. Germain, Quebec. The young couple moved into a 2nd floor apartment at 12 Lucretia Avenue, Chicopee (Willimansett), Mass. Here, the writer was born on September 6, 1933 followed 11 months later by his younger brother Richard.
My parents moved to Holyoke 3 or 4 years later and the last child, Francoise was born February 12, 1938. Their residence of 30 years was 83 Center St. in the Flats section of Holyoke. Raoul worked for a number of years as a baker (the trade he had learned in the army) and later he worked at the Worthington Pump Co. as a machinist. He was an avid bowler with the Industrial League in Holyoke and for a period of time held the three game candle pin record. He passed away in Holyoke on February 21, 1976 at age 75. Simone survived him by 21 years, succumbing at the ripe old age of almost 90 on January 9, 1997.
