Wife of William. I have a picture if you want to request one. She is listed at the columbarium and in Find A Grave as Coddington not Gokey.
Please include a note that Karen has a photo.

Thank you for your help in finding Ethels gravesite....
Just an FYI —
I did a few minutes of online searching through some of my genealogical reference sites; and, as I expected, our families intersect 'several generations back'. Most French-Canadian lines eventually connect 'somewhere'; it's one of my hobbies.
—> Your grandfather (Clifford) @ St. James, and my grandmother (also @ St. James), were 4th cousins; so that makes us 6th cousins. Our common tie goes back to the early years of 'The Madawaska Settlement', and 'François Albert' who was granted a large parcel of land on the south shore of the St. John River (near present-day St. David, Maine) — where he established his farm and raised his family. They spread out from there — to Frenchville and then eventually to Eagle Lake, Winterville, and Portage Lake.

You're quite welcome. Glad to help.

Did you know that Clifford's great-grandfather, Sifroid Nadeau, was the man who founded Eagle Lake, Maine?
There's an interesting book on this:
'Eagle Lake, The History of a Lumbering Town in Aroostook County, Maine' — written by James C. Ouellette.

Cliff — Not boring at all. I've been working on my genealogy for nearly four decades — and it's all 'French'. I'm sure that our family lines must have a common connection, somewhere along the way — and that we're distant cousins.
I've added a cemetery image to your grandfather's memorial, showing where he's buried — if you ever wanted to visit his grave. [Suggestion: Bring along some dish soap, a scrub-brush, and a watering-can if you'd care to clean it up a bit. I try to do that every year with my own relatives' markers.]
I've also created a new memorial for Clifford's mother — 'Anastasie (Chassé) Gagnon' — your great-grandmother. She's also buried at St. James Cemetery. I've seen Anastasie's grave many times over the years, as she's buried right next to one of my grand-aunts (one of the family graves that I clean every year). Your great-grandmother is in good company, as my grand-aunt [Ada Pelletier Murchison] was born in Eagle Lake. Ada passed away about two weeks before Anastasie, in 1974.
I have transferred Anastasie's memorial over to you. Feel free to make changes to it, if you like. I just put together some genealogical info that I had access to.
Hope you get to visit @ St. James, at some point.

I just saw your memorial note for Clifford — and see that he was your Pépère. All the better.
[My Pépère was the superintendent at that cemetery for many years, when I was a kid. He was a Pelletier.]
