Hi. My name is Roland Beausoleil. The source for grave information that I've contributed is from graveyards, death certificates, obituaries and other genealogical resources that I've come across while doing family research. Names that I'm researching on my wife's side are CHILEK, FRIEDEL, VINKLAREK and PETER(S). Names that I'm researching on my side of the family are BEAUSOLEIL, GERVAIS, LACASSE and PARENT. Please email me if you have corrections or additions to this information.
RE: Robert Beausoleil edit request Hi Beau, You are absolutely correct. When I saw that name on the stone, I figured that he might have been his son. Now I'm thinking that he must have been Armand's brother. At any rate, he's not a son. Thanks for keeping me honest!
RE: Anezka Anna Klepac Brezina Cool, Check out her Agnes's Mothers page again. I found more info. Also the 1910 Census shows Agnes Grandmother Barbara and her second husband living with Agnes and Andrew. I am continuing my investigation.
RE: Norman Gervais, St. Mary's That's great! Linda (LMR) is a wonderful researcher. Our memorials often "cross" and we've become friends over the years. Her information is, as far as I'm concerned, absolutely reliable. (I don't automatically trust everyone's info! LOL) And, as you see, she's very good at finding records that have errors or are transcribed incorrectly. :-)
RE: St. Mary's Uxbridge Glad you found them okay. It can be so frustrating when you KNOW someone is buried - somewhere - in a cemetery, but can't find them. I love having my sister with me for those because she has this weird knack of saying, "Let's look here..." and there it is! :-) (And, of course, I'll have walked by the stone several times already - sigh!)
And, no, I don't "do" winter forays, unless I get a special request. I spend the warm weather photographing, then the winter catching up on entering those, and also working with some other records I have access to.
RE: St. Mary's Uxbridge Thanks for getting back to me. I'd hate to be just duplicating work someone else is doing. It's a nice cemetery to document, and I've gone there a few times when my sister comes to visit from RI, since she loves doing this as much as I do, and it's on her way back from lunch with us, so it's easy for her to get on her way without a lot of back roads she doesn't know.
I've been trying to finish up a couple of cemeteries more local to me before I focus on St. Mary's, but I will plan to get back to it.
I hope you found your gg-grandparents' grave okay on that trip? The oldest section can be challenging.
RE: Henry and Malvina Gervais bio I did find a couple more children of Henry and Malvina. Interesting that one of them, according to her obit, was born in Canada. So the family may well have gone back and forth. BTW, I agree with you that Norman is PROBABLY one of their children, but, like you, I wouldn't link the memorials without further proof.
Not finding anything else interesting, so I'm going to move on. Good luck with your Gervais searches!
Oh, meant to ask you - I see that you are documenting St. Mary's - are you doing that from the markers or from a list? Are you going to be adding photos? I've done some photography there, but have been more focused on a couple of other cemeteries lately, so, if you're going to be doing it, I'll take it off my list.
