Octavie Benoit
I recently added a page for Octavie Benoit at Fairmount Memorial Park in Spokane, Washington. #146514827. Don't know if she is related to you or not but the name 'Benoit' is unusual enough I thought I would mention her.

Nancy, I have tried to get some info from Tom for the last few years to get the cemetery up to date. The reason I have her listed in Calvary is because there is a grave marker by her parents which I have posted it.

RE: Harvey W. Kelly
lol oh how confusing genealogy can be.

The following is the obituary for Demerise.

It has Harold as being a brother. I am trying to find his grave also since he is not listed in the 1940 census so I think maybe he may have passed as an infant. I did find that he was born 24 June 1939 and parents listed as Alec and Lena/Lana. I will keep looking and will definitely let you know what I find.

RE: Harvey W. Kelly

I am sooooo confused. I went into and found Alex, Lana and Mary in Minnesota in 1940. Also found out that Lana and Alex had another child: Harold Patrick Kelly b. 24 June 1939. Confused about Lena/Lana and Alex because some sites have him as Alec.

Also confused on Mary cause I have her as b.1881 and d.1930(?) If you can help me with this date I would be grateful.

I guess the saying is right: Geneology= confusing the dead and frustrating the living.

RE: Harvey W. Kelly
I have been searching for Mary's resting place for awhile now and can not find anything. Do you have Lena's date of birth and death. (I didn't even know Alexander was married.) Alex and David are my great uncles their brother Harvey is my grandfather.

Kelly Family in Gentilly
Hi Nancy, excellent work on the cemetery in Gentilly, thank you! My grandmother Viola Marie St. Martin was born 1914 in Gentilly, daughter of Mary Ann Kelly and William St. Martin. My g-g grandfather James Kelly came from Quebec in about 1885 to Gentilly with his family, and he was originally from Ireland in about 1845. What I was wondering, does the church there have any specific burial or baptism records in addition to what's recorded at the courthouse? I've also seen reference(from 1975) to a "Census of the Parish of Gentilly" and St. Peter's parish records from the 1880s, which was referenced to have been in the possession of St. Peter's church. Wondering if you'd ever seen these records or knew if they were still in the possession of the church? Thanks for any help or insight....

RE: Trudeau
Thank you for the recent info you provided. It looks like I have been concentrating on the wrong Anthime(s)!
I had Christophe Anthime baptized in 1866 in St. Isidore, Laprarie, QC. whose parents were Francois-Xavier & Marie Thais Bazinet. This Anthime had siblings that lived in the Gently, & Red Lake Falls areas; Rapheal-Isaia (spouce Louisa Page) as well as Francois (spouce Virgine Patenaude). Their daughter, Bertha Trudeau married Albert Gervais from Gently, MN.

Another Anthime appears in the 1940 census for Red Lake Falls, which has him at age 73 (would have been born around 1867). He is described as a father in-law)living with the Brule family.

And according to the Drouin Collection 1621-1967 for Quebec there is yet another Anthime baptized in 1866 whose parents were Louis Trudeau & Emilda Bazinet.

I guess I am back to where I started from.

Its been a bit confusing, any suggestions?

Nancy, you've posted a photo of the stone for the name of this cemetery. I am the Dakota Co. Genealogy Society newsletter editor and I would like to print a copy of the picture along with a short description of the cemetery in our next newsletter. Would you mind if I use the photo with credit to your name? Thanks.

Hi Nancy! I have been researching some of the Trudeau families in the area of Gently, MN and have run into a "brick wall". I wonder if you can help a little.
The person that I am most interested in and is listed in the St. Peter's cemetery, is Antime (Anthime) Trudeau born abt. 1866 in Quebec and died abt.1955.
Apparently, he came to the Gently, MN area around 1886 where shortly afterwards married a Denise Martin who was from Red Lake Falls, MN.
I have been trying to connect him to his ancestors but after trying several avenues I draw a lot of blanks.
Some of the info that might help would be his exact birth date, his marriage info and a list of his children besides the person that I do have; Isaac Trudeau born Aug. 3, 1900.
My wife is a distant relative to the Trudeau families as well as to the Gervais families.

Thank you,
Dennis Hurt
One of them being Aurora Gervais (Deziel) from Maple Lake/ Mentor MN.

Note of thanks
Nancy, I just want to pass along a note of thanks for all of the hard work you have done on Find a Grave and on your research in general. I am David DeFoe, descended from Pierre Dufault. His son Stanislas (John DeFoe), my gggrandfather, was one of the brothers that settled farther south in Atwater, MN. I visited Gentilly last summer and I appreciate the work you did tying family names together and documenting the cemetery there.

Thank you very, very much.

William (Bill) and Alexander Couette
If I were a betting person, I would bet they are brothers. Strange there were no survivors or even any family members mentioned in the obit. With the inscription "Brother" on Alexanders stone, I would also bet William had the stone put on Alexanders grave. I can not find anything in the 1940 census to connect them. Bill was listed as William on ancestry. The next time I go to East Hill, I will look in the new grave section and also in Block 45 for William. He might be in a family plot bought by William when Alexander died. Dang, I hope that made sense!!!

Gentilly Families

I was wondering if you could give me some direction in where to look for more information on many of the Gentilly families. As I have worked on my tree I have found many of the families came from Gentilly. Surnames include Amiot, Audette, Ayotte, Benoit, Brule, Charron, Chouinard, Dufault, Lance, Martell, Mercil, Menard, Normandin, Patenaude, Prudhomme, Scully, and Vaudrin to name a few. I have been to the cemetery and we took a lot of photos, but we really don't know where to find out information about who these people were or just information on the town. I have a feeling they came in groups, from Canada. But I'm not sure on the why? I really am looking for any information on these families that will bring them to life. Even if you know of people for me to contact that may know more or just a place to start. We are trying to head back up there this year, but I am certain it is a few months off and would like to have as much info as I can to work with. Thank you so much for any help. Rachel Depa

Nancy, yes, Nels O. Nelson is a brother to Alfred O. Nelson & Julia Nelson Aus and her other siblings are listed on her find a grave sheet. Julia was my Grandmother. Ole Jorstad Nelson only had one wife and that was Marit Nilsdatter Robole Nelson. Ole J. & Marit were my Grt.Grandparents. We were unable to link Nels. O. Nelson with the rest of the family as we do not control his grave listing in Mn. Glad you enjoyed the pictures we have posted. Lorna Aus Heilman.

RE: Henry Benoit
Hi Nancy. I don't know the answer to your question but would love to find out. What relation is Henry to you? Both he and Maxine lived in Redland, Oregon but no address is shown. I am new to this. I wonder if the cemetery has any other information about Henry?

Hi Nancy. I obtained a photo of his grave. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to assist you. He is buried beside Maxine in section C.
