********************************
A Story Regarding the first wife, Helena Duvall and their baby boy who passed away one day apart from child birth.

Monroe Commercial, Thursday, November 8, 1877, Page 1, Col. 3
DIED-Nov. 3, infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Cyril Lapoint. The mother, Mrs. Lapoint, aged 24 years, died Nov. 4, at 4 o'clock A.M., at child birth. The funeral of both at the Catholic Church occurred Nov. 5th, at 10 o'clock A.M. Rev. Charles Thomas officiated.

NOTE: This obituary shared p.1, c.3 with a historical story named, "Custer In the News, In Monroe County and Throughout the United States, MONUMENT FOR CUSTER." The story starts out like this; If you have any spare change that you would like to put into a monument for Custer, the dashing brown haired cavalry hero who went down before overwhelming odds at the Little Big Horn, the opportunity is now presented. Shortly after his death a universal desire was expressed that a monument should be erected to his memory. The New York Hearald announced that subscriptions for the purpose would be recieved at its office, and in a few weeks $4,051.20 were subscribed by the admirers of the dead hero and his comrades.

There are two and a half more paragraphs regarding the remainder of the story. I am sure the last thing on Great Great Grandpa LaPointe's mind was worrying about spare change for a Gen. Armstrong Custer Monument. No disrespect intended.
Researched and transcribed by Cyril LaPointe's great great granddaughter, Sherri L. Czuchra on Jan. 9, 2010.

NOTE: Notice the first wife and baby are linked to this page showing a burial in Erie, Michigan. Personally, I have not found any proof of where the burial took place and the person who has it linked to this page refuses to remove them from this website.
