Alfred Roy dit Desjardins, son of Joseph Roy dit Desjardins and Démerise Lebel, was born on 24 Mar 1871 in Saint Mathieu de Rioux, Rimouski, Québec, Canada and baptized the following day. He immigrated to the United States about 1887 with his family. Alfred married Amanda Ruel, daughter of Hubert Ruel and Marie Marceline Goulet, in Somersworth, Strafford, New Hampshire on 27 May 1895. Alfred and Amanda had fifteen children, seven of whom died young. Their youngest child was ordained as a priest in 1942.

Alfred was widowed in 1927 when his wife Amanda died suddenly at age 52. Alfred remarried two years later, on 14 Sep 1929, in Somersworth. His second bride was Emma Nadeau, the widow of his brother Ferdinand Desjardins. Alfred was widowed again in 1947. He died in 1949 and was buried in Mount Calvary Cemetery with his first wife Amanda.

Sources include the Drouin Collection, census records, New Hampshire marriage records, and his headstone, as well as records of family members.
