Bio and Links
I'm a middle school English teacher that spends my "spare" time conducting genealogical research. I spend lots of time in the Forest Hill and Laurel Hill cemeteries in Fitchburg.

Please feel free to use photos that I take for whatever purpose you choose. However, any and all photos must include proper source information in the citation. This allows other researchers to maintain the integrity of the research process.

I often have additional and/or higher quality images, and sometimes additional information, for many of the memorials. Please contact me if interested.

Please note that although I strive to take the best possible quality photos, I occasionally upload pictures that I plan to replace in the future.

RE: alphonse caron
Hubert was married in Templeton, MAss to Melvina Phaneuf. They lived in East Brookfield from 1870 to his death. My grand father was one of his sons. I do have a picture of some of the family including Hubert that was published in a book of the brookfields by dennis lebeau. Melvina died in 1939 in East Brookfield. I find no record of death for Hubert at all, they didnt't devorce he was with her til he died , i follow him in the 1900 and 1910 census then in 1920 melvina is head of I am baffled. There are other hubert carons in mass, oxford and boston way but they are not the same one. The man at the cemetary told me it is a shared grave with a family named poulion i think he said. I told him unless they were relatives of alphonse's wife i have no clue. there are 8 graves 4 and 4 alphonse, celine, victoria and alphonse jr, then the other four belong to the other family. He is sending me the paperwork on it for my records. if you would like to chat privately instead of public my email is otherwise we can talk here deb

alphonse caron
on the page above your name it says 3 grand uncle. Is this your genealogy? If so do you have any information or photos or stories on his parents and siblings? I am his brother's Hubert great gran daughter.........I also requested a photo of his grave if you can find one, I pray it is not unmarked.... debby,
