RE: Tourville at St Anthony
Joachim Tourville is the father of Octavie Tourville Labelle, also buried in the same cemetery. Are you a relative? I've been searching for his death record for YEARS!! I found him in the LDS database Minnesota Death Records 1866-1916 under the name TINVILLE and also in the LDS database Minnesota Deaths and Burials 1835-1990 under the name TURIDLE. Both are indexes and do not give access to the original document. The bad transcriptions suggest to me that the original handwriting was very poor and that the transcriber had trouble with French names. Note that the Tinville index record has an address of 618 Marshal St for him which matches perfectly with his 1891-92 Minneapolis Directory address. I rest my case!

RE: Evelyn Fisette
Louis A. Fisette (I do not have his Find A Grave#)

Parents: Joseph Nazaire Plaisance and
107483477 Louise Fisette Pleasance

Marie is my paternal great grand aunt 2 years older than my Great Grandfather.

Her correct married name should be Plaisance, the common surname in this family.

Louis and Marie had 2 children:
Charles (1970-1966) and Louis A. (1977-1911)

Again, please send me Joseph Nazaire, Louis A. and Charles' Find a Grave Memorial#.

RE: Evelyn Fisette
Thanks for asking. Hope this helps.

Evelyn Marie Fournier married Francois Mitchell "Frank" Fisette another cousin on dad's side.

Evelyn's parents are Ubaldus "Hubert"-Rosanna Aurelie "Rose" Bourgeois Fournier.

Rosanna is my grandma Fisette's sister, daughters of John and Rose Bourgeois. Their sister is Eugenie Marie "Jennie" m. to Ed Morrisette and Tom Caron.

They were from a family of 14 children so I expect you have some difficulty with them.

Also, the French families have a horrible preference for using ANY of their names or nicknames; and change for no good reason. They use different names when they felt like it. Mostly they were named after the godparents, but not always.

Swanson grave photos

Thank you so much for adding the Swanson photos to their memorials. I appreciate your work since Minneapolis is quite a distance from my home in Nebraska.

RE: Frank L Norton
Leslie: We have a burial card for him, he is in the register of burials where the date falls, his sister and her infant child are buried in the same plot as Frank. All with unmarked graves. It would appear his remains were going to be taken back to Canada and were not. Great find on the at article.I have posted it to the pictures as Find A Grave will not post to the bio..thanks so much
